Kapoho Vacationland is a residential neighborhood that is located adjacent to the Waiopae Marine Life Conservation District, just south of the eastern-most tip of the Big Island of Hawaii. There are numerous volcanically heated tide-pools in the area, which rise and fall with the tides, but are protected from the ocean by the rocky outcroppings that create the pools. The tide-pools are warmer than the ocean, but not too warm for fish and coral. Consequently, snorkling here is a most pleasant experience, with calm waters where you can swim with fish and other marine life. Yes, we do provide snorkel gear. Some of the pools are shallow enough to stand in, while others might be 20 feet deep or more. Depths can vary significantly with the tides. The neighborhood consists of vacation rental homes interspersed with homes in which people live full time. Neighborhood residents and guests of the vacation rental homes have driving access into the neighborhood. Non-residents and non-guests have access to the tide pools by parking at the entrance to the neighborhood, and walking in from there. The weather here is usually sunny in the day with occasional rain at night. This and other areas along the cost are always sunnier than places further inland. However, there can be extended periods of rain, like most places in Hawaii.

The perfect spot to enjoy the ponds and friends.

  • 5 of 5

The ponds were delightful and close, plenty of room for the four of us. Nice ambiance. No BBQ, but we brought our little propane grill.

Anthony the property representative was most gracious and helpful.

Would stay there again and would recommend it to others.
