Favorite Beach: Mau-umae Beach Located in The Mauna Kea Resort property. Drive up to the guard gate at the entrance of the resort. Ask specifically for a pass to Mau-umae Beach. (pronounced Mow Mai) They only give out a few passes each day. Arrive before 10am to ensure a pass. This beach is a soft, sandy, secluded beach, with gentle water access. The water is shallow (2-3 ft deep) for 100 feet out. There are no breaking waves and the water is calm and crystal clear. Bring a cooler with water and snacks. Bring a beach umbrella and chairs, for an awesome day of peace and tranquility.
Best Beach Close To Condo: White Sands Beach It is about a 5 minute drive south of the condo, right on Alii Drive. It has soft sand, easy water access, and great waves for boogie boarding. Snorkeling is great, if you snorkel out to the right side, by the sea wall. There are always many sea turtles hanging out here.
The Big Island Candy Company: A MUST SEE!!!!! Outrageous hand made chocolates and chocolate delights.
Snorkeling is the best thing to do. It’s free and it is awesome. Kona has some of the clearest waters in the world. The water is warm and filled with creatures. You often see sea turtles, fish, dolphins, crabs, eels, manta rays, and other animals while snorkeling around Kona. The Place of Refuge has some of the best snorkeling.

About the owner: I'm a long time resident of both the San Francisco Bay Area of California and Reno Nevada. A former real estate agent, I've traveled extensively since retiring. I visited my nephew in Kona frequently over the years and have always loved the area. My late husband and I have fabulous memories of the the Big Island. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Why the Owner Chose Kona Palms: It is a quiet complex to get away and enjoy each other's company.
