Some of the best snorkeling in the islands can be found in Nearby! There are snorkel beaches within walking distance, but if you wish for world-class snorkeling, the “Place of Refuge” (AKA “two-step”) is not far away. This has been voted the worlds best snorkeling numerous times! Just up Alii Drive you will find Kahalu’u Beach. This is a wonderful place for the whole family to swim up close and personal with a huge variety of tropical fish and the famous green sea turtles!! White Sands Beach is less than a mile from the condo and is a wonderful soft sand beach where sea turtles bask in the warm waters of Kona. Captain Cook’s Monument is minutes away from The City of Refuge and is a great history lesson. Memories of a lifetime await!!
Volcano Viewing in Volcanoes National Park has it all. Currently lava is flowing for a spectacular lava watching experience!
Waterfalls are located all over the island. Close by Akaka Falls is a serene tropical place to see all of natures beauty. This is on the Hilo side of The Island.
Dolphin Quest is a place for the entire family to get up close and personal while interacting with dolphins. It is located in the Waikoloa area. It’s a real must see!!!
