Don’t miss snorkeling at Kahalu’u

Kahalu’u… it is like a giant fish bowl with turtles. Early morning is best. On Alii Drive just a few minutes from any of our Kona properties and it offers parking and facilities.   .

Try a true “local kine plate lunch” at Umekes

Umekes is an easy walk from Hale Kona Kai and Kona Reef and a short ride from our other properties. Located across the street from the Kona Farmers Market just up the hill a little.  75-143 Hualalai Rd… the poke is the best on the islands.
