    Nice sandy beach. There’s a lot of trees surrounding the beach and restrooms are available. The water was too rough and too cool when we were there. The wind was so strong. It wasn’t a great beach day, but the park is beautiful. We saw chickens everywhere.

    While searchimg for the Petroglyph Trail wecame upon this beach which shares the same parking area. I love this beach for the natural setting of coral rocks,lava slopes, turtles, secluded. Maybe not atypical sandy beach but I could have stayed all day.

    A welcoming Catholic community. Love their traditions for maki g guests feel welcome. The priest even facilitated our ride back to our resort after Sunday services with a church member.

    Fun layout with fantastic views of the ocean from many holes. Unfortunately for us just done plugging greens and fairways, but we still really enjoyed the round.

    If you like to paddle, this is the way to go. Lat 20 delivered a Kayak and SUP to our rental and the weekly rental option allowed us to paddle when every we wanted - perfect for sunset paddling. If you plan to paddle a few times, it is cheaper than the hourly rental places. Our equipment was great and the drop off and entire process was easy and accommodating.

    We bought a cute stuffed souvenir, prices were reasonable and service was great. We didn't spend too much time browsing since the item in the window caught our eye.

    Over the years we had done 4 other manta ray tours with various tour companies. Liquid Hawaii is by far the best and we highly highly recommend them. It’s a smaller boat that accommodates only 8 passengers which means you’re not fighting for space and not accidentally getting kicked in the face by a nervous swimmer.

    Amy and Kieran are the operators of the boat - incredibly knowledgeable about the manta rays and eager to share their knowledge and passion. Loved spending time with them! They’re awesome people who are clearly doing something that is meaningful for them.

    They also offer other tours during the day. Next time we’re back on the Big Island we’re definitely gonna book them for a snorkeling trip.

    They are a high quality operations and you will have the most awesome experience with them.

    Amazing tour! Great adventure to add to your to do list. Evan our tour guide was amazing and provided us with an amazing experience. He was hopeful to find us an octopus and with his persistence he did! Definitely a highlight to our experience!
