Other Activities

This unit is located on one of the most beautiful & diverse of all the Hawaiian islands. There are five distinct ecosystems on this one island. Whether you are traveling with children, teenagers or visiting the islands with friends or your sweetie you will find plenty to do. We are centrally located in the Waikoloa Beach Resort with wide winding tree lined walkways. Across the street from the Queens shopping center & next door to the Kings shopping center- you are a short walk from some of the best restaurants & shopping on the island., Two of our favorites are Merriman’s Market Cafe & Roy’s. There is even a food court for casual & inexpensive family food. The gourmet market features a great sushi bar, fresh made sandwiches & pastries, fresh organic produce grown on the island and a great wine shop! At both shopping centers you will find outside evening entertainment- free of charge. Also, across the street is the Marriott Hotel & the Hilton hotel with a live dolphin experience. As if that were not enough – the famous A-Bay is also just across the street. This quiet bay provides great snorkeling, para sailing, swimming & beautiful sunsets.

Speaking of beaches- just up the road about 5 miles is the Hapuna Beach State Park. A half mile stretch of white sand beach with shower & bathroom facilities. If you want to take a break from the beaches, check out the Waimea Farmers Market. Great local produce, flowers & Hawaiian culture.Further up the road is the Waipio Valley- black sand beach, taro fields farmed by the few inhabitants of this valley & unbelievable panoramic views.A good tip- see it on horseback! For the flower & rain forest lovers you can not beat the Hawaiian Botanical Gardens- a short drive & a one of a kind experience. On your way to or from the Waipio Valley or Botanical Gardens make sure to stop at Tex’s Drive In in Honokaa. This is a great little stop with restroom facilities. Tex’s serves up great Malasadas (Portugese doughnuts) and you will want to get a box to take home! Our personal favorite is the Bavarian cream!! A local landmark with a long history in the area.

If you are looking for dinner on your way back home- try Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant for either lunch or dinner. Located in the Mauna Lani Resort, Tommy’s features open air dining, great sunset views and nightly entertainment weekdays from 5-8PM. Volcano Nat’l. Park is also a great day trip. Lots of walking trails or drive through and stop at the scenic outlooks to see still active volcanoes.

A relaxed & friendly golf experience on a truly beautiful course with some awesome vistas of the ocean. With significantly reduced member rates, you can afford to golf and still take your wife out to dinner!

If you are interested in deep sea fishing , whale watching, or dolphin experiences- we recommend Dolphin Journeys. They provide a fun & enjoyable experience at a reasonable rate. There is so much to do on this island and with less than 10 inches of rain per year on the Kohala Coast you are almost guaranteed a sunny day! Enjoy being in the center of all that is happening on the island, and yet away from all the activity when you return home to this quiet low density property. Take a relaxing walk along the tree lined boulevard, enjoy the beautifully landscaped pool & jacuzzi hot tub, or just sit on your private lanai & cook dinner on your Viking gill as you enjoy the evening trade winds.
