Things To Do Around Waikoloa Beach Resort, Big Island

For us, it’s a staycation, for you, maybe it’s a week having a great vacation in Waikoloa Resort on Hawaii Island! We stayed at the Waikoloa Resort Marriott for a night and made the most of 36 hours to show you the area!

A few things:
We like the Marriott, because it’s ocean front with easy access to a sandy beach and the fish ponds make for great photo opps. You can get on a catamaran right from the front of the hotel. Also, unlike the Hilton, the parking lot is steps from the front door, the rooms and restaurant are close to the pool so you can get around the hotel within minutes.

The Kings Shops is right across the street from the Marriott! Not only great for shopping and restaurants, but they are planning more special events at the shopping center, so more to do while you are in the area!

Lava Lava Beach Club is an experience. It just is. So, you save your pennies and eat well on the beach and you may have to wait for a table, but you do..and watch sunset. It’s worth it.

Mauna Kea Visitors Center is a great place to star gaze! Walk up the cinder cone across the street for a great view of the volcanic landscape and see sunset. Bring WARM CLOTHES no matter the time of year. The Milky Way is visible most of the time, but super intense at new moon. We got a voggy sky this past weekend..thanks Kilauea.

An no, as popular as we are, we did not get paid or receive anything to recommend the hotel, shops or restaurant. If anyone WOULD like to pay us, please contact us!
