Favorite Beach: Mau-umae Beach
Located in The Mauna Kea Resort property. Drive up to the guard gate at the entrance of the resort. Ask specifically for a pass to Mau-umae Beach. (pronounced Mow Mai) They only give out a few passes each day. Arrive before 10am to ensure a pass. This beach is a soft, sandy, secluded beach, with gentle water access. The water is shallow (2-3 ft deep) for 100 feet out. There are no breaking waves and the water is calm and
crystal clear. Bring a cooler with water and snacks. Bring a beach umbrella and chairs, for an awesome day of peace and tranquility.
Best Beach Close To Condo: White Sands Beach
It is about a 5 minute drive south of the condo, right on Alii Drive. It has soft sand, easy water access, and great waves for boogie boarding. Snorkeling is great, if you snorkel out to the right side, by the sea wall. There are always many sea turtles hanging out here. **BEWARE***!!!! This beach can be hazardous in high surf!! If the waves are high, stay away from this beach!! Sometimes in the winter months, the
sand disappears for a few days at a time. It is not a good place to visit when the sand is gone!
The Big Island Candy Company: A MUST SEE!!!!! Outrageous hand made chocolates and chocolate delights.
Snorkeling is the best thing to do. It’s free and it is awesome. Kona has some of the clearest waters in the world. The water is warm and filled with creatures. You often see sea turtles, fish, dolphins, crabs, eels, manta rays, and other animals while snorkeling around Kona. The Place of Refuge has some of the best snorkeling.
I will send you a comprehensive list of my favorite activities and restaurants upon your reservation.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Your condo was very comfortable. The spacious lanai equipped with spectacular ocean views was exactly what we had hoped for and as an added bonus, your condo was very quiet and secure.
From the lanai, we enjoyed the frequent surfer show and other activities of all kinds such as fishing, swimming, bike riders, joggers, some snorkeling, etc., etc. The past week, a couple of turtles have lingered in the shallow lagoons right across the street. I am a golfer so I enjoyed 3 rounds at Wiakola (suggest golfers buy the Hawaii Golf Card). As you suggested, in Hilo we had a great lunch at Ken's and stopped by the Candy Factory. Also, just outside Kialua, the open air restaurant at the fisherman's wharf dock is worth a stop as well as all the nearby beaches. Today we went para-sailing and had a perfect weather day for it. My wife really enjoyed this adventure as it was on her list, you know, "the list".
We hope your future guests enjoy their stay as much as we have.

I visited my nephew in Kona frequently over the years and have always loved the area. My late husband and I have fabulous memories of the the Big Island. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
