when you visit our vacation home at Manini Beach.
Kealakekua Bay is located on the Kona coast of the island of Hawai'i about 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona. An historic location well known for the death of Captain James Cook, the European who made first contact with Native Hawaiians in 1778, Kealakekua Bay (which means Pathway to the Gods) is also one of Hawai'i's most spectacular coral reefs. Because it is a Marine Life Conservation District fish are plentiful and swarm over the well developed reef that slopes steeply from the shore into the nearby deep water. Spinner dolphins and green sea turtles are also commonly seen resting in the Bay. The reefs make this area an underwater sanctuary, so come enjoy a swim or snorkel in some of the worlds most pristine water.
Snorkeling anywhere off the shores of the bay is a wonderful experience, you will see the many of the local reef fish and beautiful coral formations.
Many adventurous visitors enjoy swimming out to where the Spinner and Bottle-nose dolphins can be seen in the warm waters of Kealakekua Bay. They come to rest and to play with their young!
Ke'ei Beach, a 10 minute walk south is a long, white sandy beach that is a common surf spot for the more experienced surfers.
"Pu'uhonua o Honaunau" the 'Place of Refuge' is only a ten minute drive from our location. This is a sacred place that is of great religious and historical value to Hawaiian native culture. This area which is now a state park is also a wonderful place to explore and snorkel or SCUBA dive.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Kealakekua Bay, Big Island, Hawaii
Great House at Kealekakua Bay
December 19, 2007
Hale Lotus is an ideal rental for two couples - spacious, well equiped, very attractively furnished with excellent art and comfortable furniture. A big lanai overlooking an nicely planted garden with pools and fruit trees is an added pleasure. And it is only a two minute walk from Manini Beach - bring your water or reef shoes for easy water entry!
