Island Fun

Kealakekua Bay at Captain Cook

The area surrounding the beach contains many archeological and historical sites such as heiaus and  the spot where the first documented European to reach the Hawaiian islands, Captain James Cook, was killed.
It i listed as a marine life conservation district, and is  a popular destination for kayaking, scuba diving, and snorkeling.
There is no entrance fee.
Please respect all historical sites.

If you are like me you will want to go see the Captain James Cook Monument.  The best way is to go by kayak. - Don't try to swim. Just trust me on that, OK?  If you don't have a kayak there are place nearby to rent one.
There is a hike but I have heard it is only for folks that are in really good shape. If you want to try the trail starts on RT 160 (Napoopoo Rd.) Here is the map link   It is best to go early in the morning and take plenty of water.
 
 
After your hike or swim there is a L&L Hawaiian Barbecue nearby.  Might be just what you need.
Ifyou happen to be there on a Sunday check out the Pure Kona Green Market.  It's a lot more than veggies!  Here's the map link
