    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

      Many thanks. Penny

      Can anyone tell me about water temps in Kona/Kohala area during mid-April? Is it warm enough for swimming and snorkeling?

      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.


    • Water depth?

      by MayaI Online Now Jun 3, 2005 at 10:54 PM

      I love swimming and even though I know that Lanikai is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, that doesn't tell me anything about how deep the water is. I hope it's not too shallow. Can you please give me some estimate? In feet, meters, anyhing? Thank you very, very much. Can't wait for my trip! Maya

      Planning a May 2005 trip to Oahu. My son is getting married in Lanikai so I would like something near there for 4 people(adults) with kitchen/kitchenette. Not a big spender so something nice but on the middle to lower price range.

    • Kayaking

      by eightdays Online Now Feb 15, 2004 at 1:25 PM

      What is it like to kayak to the bird sanctuary Islands from the beach? I am a novice kayaker. 1. Can I rent a kayak at the beach? 2. About how far a ride is it? 3. Is the water rough or protected? 4. Are the islands a PHOTGRAPHIC moment? 5. I will be there in May. Is there a best time of day to go?
