Activities and Special Interests
Hale Mar is located on the gorgeous, tropical east side of the
Big Island of Hawaii, 20 minutes south of Hilo, in the Hawaii
Paradise Park area of the Puna district, close to the Mauna Loa
Volcano Park. The Big Island of Hawaii is the largest but least
populated (in terms of density) of the 6 principle Hawaiian
islands. It is known for its diversity of natural beauty, serenity,
and agricultural products including Kona coffee, macadamia
nuts, and orchids, as well as its active volcano!
The capital of the state of Hawaii is in Honolulu, on the smaller
but much more densely populated island of Oahu, where
Waikiki Beach is located.

Black Sand Beaches...
Punalu'u black sand beach glistens like obsidian, and is also a
sanctuary for green sea turtles. You will often see them lying in
the sand, and can swim with them in the cove. The coast also
features green sand and golden sand beaches as well as
superb snorkeling and scuba spots.
Astronomy and Skiing at Mauna Kea...
Mauna Kea (Hawaiian for 'white mountain') is a 13,796' (4205
meter) volcanic mountain whose summit sometimes gets a
skiable/boardable mantle of snow. There are no lifts, no
grooming, no resort, but a road goes to the summit to serve the
dozen or so world class observatories located at the top.
February - March are the best months for snow.
Ahalanui Park, 15 minutes from Hale Mar, features a large,
spring-fed pool which is volcanically heated to a balmy 90
degrees. The water is very clear and fish often swim along with
the visitors. The park and pools are open every day and
evening, free of charge, with life guards on duty during the day.
Miles of Tide Pools...
The Kapoho Tide Pools, just to the south of Hale Mar, are an
unusually large collection of tidepools and spring fed pools
stretching almost a mile down the coast and extending up to
200 yards out into the ocean. A wide variety of fish are also
attracted to the area so snorkeling is easy and fascinating and
some of the pools are volcanically heated!
Orchid, Honey, Macadamia Nut & Coffee Farms...
The Big Island of Hawaii hosts a wide variety of agriculture,
particularly on the East side of the island where Hale Mar is
located. Many farms are open for visiting, tours and shopping
(they can arrange for permitted shipment of agricultural products
out of state, which is otherwise prohibited.)
Volcano National Park...
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park is just half an hour from Hale
Mar, encompassing diverse environments that range from ash
cone to barren lava field to rainforest. You'll want to make
several visits, both day and night, to see its full splendors.
Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, is erupting in some
form every day - live lava flows often visible.
There are about 20 golf courses on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hapuna Golf Course is the home of EWG's Hawaii chapter;
Hualalai Golf Club is a challenging Jack Nicklaus design where
lava rock extends onto fairways. Closest to Hale Mar you will
find the Discovery Harbour Golf & CC, Sea Mountain Golf
Course, Volcano Golf & CC, Hamakua CC, Naniloa CC and the
Hilo Municipal Golf Course.
The last major Pacific wide tsunami (frequently called a "tidal
wave") occurred in 1964. Whether your interest is historic,
scientific, or one of simple curiosity about these strange and
powerful intermittent forces of nature, you will find the the Pacific
Tsunami museum in Hilo (http://www.tsunami.org) a unique
collection of information, photographs and first hand accounts.
Arts & Artisans ...
Visit galleries around the island featuring Koa wood carvings
and furnishings, original glasswork, raku and other ceramic
styles, painting and more.
A Day in the Rainforest - in Downtown Hilo...
Start the early morning with coffee or a hike alongside Rainbow
Falls in Hilo at Wailuku River State Park; then shop at the multi-
block Farmer's Market for fresh tropical fruits, fish and more. On
the way home to Hale Mar take the kids to the Panaewa
Rainforest Zoo (White Tiger feeding is at 3:30 pm) or stroll the
greenhouses at the largest cymbidium orchid farm in the state,
Akatsuka Orchid Gardens.
Wine Tasting ...
Volcano Winery on the Big Island of Hawaii is home to one-of-a-
kind wines made nowhere else on earth: all-tropical-honey wine
(no grapes!), tropical fruit blends (part-fruit, part-grape), and all-
grape Symphony dinner whites! The Big Island of Hawaii's only
commercial winery, and America's southernmost, Volcano
Winery is open for free wine tasting every day of the year, next to
Volcanoes National Park and the Volcano Golf Course.
Horseback Riding ...
The Big Island is a horseback riding mecca, with expansive
rolling countryside, gorgeous scenery and happy Hawaiian
horses. Even fox hunting is available. For organized tours, the
Waimea Falls trail ride is the non plus ultra day's adventure from
jungle to ocean.
