One of the best places to go snorkeling is Kahalu‘u Beach Park on Ali‘i Drive. Located adjacent to the Keauhou Beach Resort, the bay offers easy access into the water from a sand beach. With its lava-laden coastline, beach entries like Kahalu‘u are hard to come by in Kona, which is why this spot provides a great location for beginners snorkeling just getting their feet, and fins, wet. If you didn't bring any snorkel gear with you, no worries. There are several gear rental shops in the vicinity. You can also rent stand-up paddleboards here, as well as take surfing lessons.
