In last week’s column, I wrote about my recent honeymoon trip to Hawaii. My wife and I had such a great time I thought I would share some of the highlights.
Continuing our theme from last week, here are eight additional highlights of Hawaii’s Big Island:
We traveled to the snorkeling site on a boat at sunset, then floated effortlessly in the warm water. The whole experience was unforgettable. Several companies offer manta ray snorkeling. We had a great time with Neptune Charlie’s. The crew was friendly and funny in an enthusiastically hammy sort of way.
The three small beach coves at Kekaha Kai State Park require a rough 2-mile drive on an unpaved road, but any vehicle can handle it if driven carefully. Close to Kailua-Kona, Kekaha Kai offers pristine coarse white sand and smaller crowds. The beaches require a 5- to 15-minute walk from the parking area.
