Other things to do in Hawaii

There are a number of local activities designed to suit the whole family.  The Mauna Kea Observatory is both spectacular and educational.  What better way to learn than through a fun and breathtaking experience?

Kealakekua Bay is one of the best snorkelling locations on the island and certainly worth the trip.  You can only drive to a certain point.  After this, you will need to hike the rest of the way but it is sure to be unforgettable!  Another top snorkelling area is the Kapoho Tide Pools.  Due to the dense coral, it is strongly advised that snorkelers avoid wearing any kind of fins.  The fins aren’t particularly necessary in these shallow waters and they cause more harm than good to the delicate coral and underwater life.

The Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (Place of Refuge) is not only home to a local sacred refuge but also temples and coastal sites.  The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is a beautiful as can be imagined.  Take your time and feel free to spend hours wondering around and enjoying the sights, sounds and fresh air.
