Children's Beach near Hilton?

by jenn_d

We are heading to the BIg Island for a wedding later this year and our 6 year old son will be joining us. We plan to rent a house near the Waikola Hilton where the wedding will be taking place. I'd like to stay within walking distance of a beach perhaps has a protected lagoon or is considered a children's beach. Any suggestions?

Re: Children's Beach near Hilton?

by keida84

Hi Jenn, yes I agree with the previous post, not too many good children's beaches in the Waikoloa area. We stayed at the ResortQuest Waikoloa villas just down from the Hilton matter of fact it had a free trolley that went between the two properties. The villas were very nice--washer dryer, dishwasher, full kitchen we had two bed and two baths. I believe some units have 3 beds and two baths. They have 2 pools that accomodate children nicely. Very nice property for a reasonable rate. Hope this may be of help to you. Aloha nui loa, Kat

Travel Tips for Kailua-Kona

Kailua-Kona Tip

by smoox

Landing on Kailua-Kona airport, you´ll at once notice the surrounding BLACK. This lava is not very old and covers much of the northwestern coastal plain. The Ironman athletes have to run and cycle along this road in late summer, when temperatures may still hit the thirties - and there´s black lava, reflecting the heat. A lovely sight along the Queen Kaahumanu Road are the many 'graffitis' made from white corals, and also every now and then there are oases with palm trees, bringing some lively green to the barren black landscape.

When the wind picks up

by annk

Anaehoomalu Bay is great for windsurfing, especially in the afternoon when the wind picks up. This beach is very casual & many try the water sports available even if it's the first time. There is no pressure here to 'look good'. Anaehoomalu Bay is the only spot on the island where you can learn to windsurf.

I realize this tip should be under the Sports category but this was created before the category existed.

Many places in Hawaii are...

by mysie

Many places in Hawaii are Sacred, so they should be viewed with quiet respect. If you stumble upon petroglyphs, idols, ancient buildings or caves, you should be alright taking a photo or two. Just don't disturb anything, or take anything, including flowers or other vegetation. Other places are kapu (taboo), and should not be disturbed or visited at all, but these are usually caves or hard to find. Check with the locals if you're unsure.

Packing List

by enigma58

The fishing boats come at night and still those turtles to make soup....they are protected but those that protec them in the day kill them at night....we still have few so if you hurry you may be able to swim with them....

Take a Drive up the Mountain!

by klarson

Want to know how to get up near the top of Hualalai (the volcano mountain above Kona)? Take Palani Road out of town (east). It winds a bit, and then straightens out. About a mile after the road gets straight (and speed limit goes up to 45 mph), look for a road on the right called Koloko Road. Go up this road several miles. It does a number of switch backs and takes you up pretty high. Eventually, you get to a dead end at a ranch. You can go a bit higher by turning around, drive a quarter mile, and taking the first right. At the end of this road, you can park.

There are beautiful fern forrests and pheasants up there. Also a grand view below of the ocean if its not cloudy and foggy.
