My brother and his wife went on a 7+ mile hike and we went for an “easy” hike. We did the Kiholo Trail. It was rocky lava and then a really nice sandy beach!
It was exposed and hot, but not too difficult. We saw a bunch of goats randomly. Actually, all through Waikoloa and Waimea we saw random wild goats on the side of the road.
The beach was secluded and empty and really beautiful.
After the hike we got lunch in Kona at Broke da Mouth Grindz. Michael got the fried chicken and it was AMAZING. I got the kalua pork and it was so so good! Not too salty, kinda smoky. Perfect. I ate half of it!
This day Logan was kind of the perfect child. He was adjusting to the time change I guess. He was an angel in the restaurant and for the whole day. Gold star!
Next up: the Beach!
We went to Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay) at the Waikoloa Village and it was kind of the PERFECT beach! Free parking, huge lot, short walk to the beach, nice facilities. I definitely recommend going to this one.
There were some palm trees, a nice beach and perfect water (no big waves) and perfect for me to swim laps! So far I swam every day in the ocean and it was amazing!
We had dinner and local donuts by the fire pit in the backyard and then went to bed early. It was a nice day.
