Beach
“Approximate 10 minute walk from the Kona Belle. This is one of the top spots in Kona for snorkeling”

Point of Interest
“This small but gorgeous beach (also called White Sands and, officially, Laʻaloa Beach) has turquoise water, great sunsets, little shade and possibly the best bodysurfing and bodyboarding on the Big Island. Waves are consistent and just powerful enough to shoot you across the water into a sandy bay (beware: the north side of the bay has more rocks). During high winter surf the beach can vanish literally overnight, earning the nickname ‘Magic Sands.’ The park is about 4 miles south of central Kailua-Kona.”

Japanese Restaurant

“This is in the Keauhou Shopping Center just up the road at the stop light. This is Japanese fusion food and it tends to be good. The happy hour is popular with 50% off the sushi menu in the bar. That is from 4:30-6 pm every day. ”

“Great gourmet food with a local flare. Situated on the cliff overlooking Magic Sands Beach. Reservations required to get an outside table with a view. Check the sunset calendar and make your reservation for 15 to 30 minutes before sunset to enjoy amazing food with an equally amazing view. ”

“Manta Rays! At night the resort shines lights into the water, this attracts plankton which attracts Mantas! (most nights) View them from the deck. FYI Less chance of seeing them at the full moon. You can also have a high priced burger & drinks! ( reservation best for dining at Ray's)”
