THINGS TO SEE & DO
Planning your day might include a visit to famous Black Sand Beach just a few minutes away, where you can swim in crystal clear waters and spot the endangered sea turtles. Also a short drive away is the Green Sand Beach, where the sand is truly green against the beautiful clear water. Snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and diving opportunities abound, not to mention golf courses, good restaurants and lots of exciting community events.
Our location on the Big Island is ideal, mid-point between the two major metropolitan areas of Kona and Hilo – or in sightseeing terms, halfway between the most beautiful beaches in the world in Kohala, and the rain forest and waterfalls of Puna and Hilo. This location gives Discovery Harbour the seclusion and privacy of the countryside with the convenience of urban amenities not so far away. And, we are located just 30 miles from Volcanoes National Park where you can see a volcano that’s been active for almost 30 years.
IN THE AREA – DINING, SHOPPING & ENTERTAINMENT
The sparsely populated Ka’u District at the southern tip of the island is known for its rich environmental diversity. A large chunk of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is located in this district, as are wind farms, highland forests, the parched Ka’u Desert and enticing black-, white-and green-sand beaches.
There are several local restaurants located in the near by towns of Na’alehu and Ocean View. Discovery Harbour is in the middle of these two towns which are just several minutes away. You can visit the local newspaper to see what’s cooking and entertainment.
