Stand-up paddlers appreciate the calm, clear waters of Kona, where there is plenty of opportunity to view marine life from above while exploring the bays and beaches of the Kona coast. If you are a beginner, one of the best places to learn stand-up paddling is at Kahalu‘u Beach on Ali‘i Drive. This premier snorkeling spot features easy access from the sandy beach to the water. Across the street, you will find board rentals and other kinds of equipment for rent, including snorkel gear, kayaks and surfboards. There's also Kailua Bay right in town by the pier, where you can rent boards and cruise around the ancient Ahu‘ena Heiau overlooking the water.
