  • The beach is rocky, but really beautiful. You can see the monument to Captain Cook across the water. Parking is very limited, but you can easily walk to the other locations. 
  • This historical state park is worth the visit, just to see the beautiful Kealakekua Bay. The drive to the park is not for the faint of heart or those who might get dizzy as there are more than a few d...  more »
  • 我們的旅遊書並沒有告訴我們,必須穿上正式的鞋子而不是拖鞋,帶上足夠的水,才能往下走到這裡,所以我們根本無法來到這裡,而旁邊的海灣,開了很久的車,也不是屬於一個可以下水的海灣,讓我們對於Kona的海灘好生失望。

  • This bay was awesome! We saw such diversity of fish and we had a dolphin encounter :) We legit saw about 50 dolphins playing around underwater and we were the only people around! The only thing I didn't like were the tour boats near the Captain Cook monument. If you want to come here you should have to kayak in. We snorkeled around for a couple hours and had a blast. I definitely recommend renting a kayak from Kona Kayak Rentals and snorkeling out there.
  • Cant have shade to bbq. Half and half friendly rangers.overall you can find much better places hang at beach
  • The bay is gorgeous, best snorkeling, dolphins. If you go to the monument when the tour boats are there it is a bit crazy. But the bay itself is quiet.
  • This park is rich is history and beauty. I would say its a top 5 park to visit if you are in the area. The water is magnificent and the views are incredible.
  • This place is absolutely on the top of my recommendation list for locations to snorkel in Kona. We chartered the Ali'i Ocean Tours group, who have the best hospitality on the ocean, met them at the marina, and motored down the coast line to the park. There, we snorkeled and had an amazing lunch on the boat with the cliffs in the background and the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins performing in the bay. Amazing. Must see. Take a boat, don't try to canoe or paddle board. Save your energy for swimming.
