Waikoloa’s Anaeho‘omalu Beach is considered one of the Big Island’s best. The white sand beach and crystal blue waters are a favorite spot for sunning, swimming and water-sports. Other near-by beaches include the world-famous Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches.
Beach Resort Golf
Just a short walk from the front door are two of Hawaii's award-winning golf courses. The Kings’ Course was created by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish as a challenging Scottish-links style course for purists with low handicaps. The more forgiving Beach Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. Both courses feature spectacular views, scenic lakes, and ancient lava features.
Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
Whether you are a novice just putting on a mask for the first time or a seasoned diver, you'll find spectacular underwater scenery everywhere. Underwater lava tubes and caverns abound, populated by many species of fish, invertibrates and other sea life, some of them unique to the Hawaiian islands.
Don't miss this most amazing of the Big Island's features. Walk on ground younger than yourself. View the steaming crater Kilauea, or get really adventurous and hike out to actual lava flows.
In the mountain region above Kailua-Kona some of the worlds most flavorful coffee is grown. There are literally dozens of farms, some as small as just a few acres, all offering tasting and tours. We think the most informative tour is provided by Greenwell Farms, but try a few, and taste a lot!
The summit of Mauna Kea makes for a facinating adventure. The crystal clear air at the 13,000 foot plus summit is ideal for telescopes of all sizes. The many observatories operated there are worth a look.
Just across the lake from your front door is a wide array of restaurants and shops. Twenty resort restaurants offer a myriad of choices, including American, Continental, Italian, Asian, Pacific Rim, and Hawaiian Regional Cuisine. Shopping includes everything from designer boutques to art galleries, jewelry stores, and specialty gift shops.
