Wave Jumping


As I mentioned there are not many sand beaches near Kona.  Most shore line is volcanic rock.  We were able to rent boogie boards from the resort for the kids for $6.50 each and they could use them for the week.  We thought that was a great deal!  The only problem there really wasn’t anywhere nearby to use them.  Marc did some research and found a white sand beach at a state park. We drove about 45 minutes north of Kona where we were staying to Hapuna Beach State Park http://www.hawaiistateparks.org/parks/hawaii/index.cfm?park_id=44

We made the drive twice.  The second day we even rented an umbrella and spent most of the day there.  It was by far the best beach we have ever been to.  The water was crystal clear.  Even when you weren’t able to touch you could still see the sandy ocean floor.  The waves were strong, but made for a lot of fun.  We all were rolled over a few times.  Marc and Caroline did a fair amount of boogie boarding while Marcus and I did mostly wave jumping.  We all just couldn’t get over the unspoiled beauty and sheer fun of this beach.  The absolute best part for me was the whale sightings!  Yes, while we were in the water you could see whales breaching, spouting, jumping and almost waving to us.  Now this didn’t happen the entire time, but frequently enough that every few waves we would stop a look out over the horizon.  I was so thankful to be able to experience this….the kids on the other hand grew tired of me getting so excited each time I saw a brake in the surface of the water.
