Aloha, spent Sat on the Fairwind in the Bay with my visiting Sister. The monument to Capt Cook is the only British Land on the Island given to England by the Queen. The monument was built by the Aussies to dedicate the explorer and the crests of many ships are embedded in the concrete. There are also two other monuments to the explorer one at about 100 ft submerged for divers in front of the dock and one in about a ft of water at high tide 100 yrds left of the Monument.  This is the location where The good Capt was killed. The Bay is a marine park so the coral and marine life are protected. The only way into the area is by boat  or trail (within walking distance from the house).

The area is a great snorkel and scuba spot and the trail also has exceptional views and takes you through the old walled village. The hike is a killer on the return as its 1500 ft gain from sea level and no shade. Not for folks who aren't fit or have little water.

I snorkeled there!  So beautiful, looking into the water was like looking at HDTV for the first time.  Everything was bright and beautiful and full of color, amazing.  Great photos, I really miss the Big Island.

In about five years Serena and I are going to look for an investment property on the Big Island.  I'm definitely going to be back.

Excellent bring the bikes. Maxon will ship a full con ex  box to your door for $3800 from the mainline. We just had friends purchase property in the Koloa area above Kona and Marti has a couple of good realtor contacts.  Let me know if you guys are planning a visit between then, maybe we can put a ride together. Or how about a future Maxi Scoot Ride????? Just a thought.

Took the twisty down to Kealakekua Bay on the Napoopoo rd which is just a block from the house. I always laugh as Marti wants a paper in the morning and Im always volunteering to go a block to get it, It just takes an hour for me to get back. Here's a view from across the Bay. The Napoopoo dock is now pretty much just restricted to four kayak companies.
So those of us with our own Kayak even with a permit cant launch at this facility. Kind of a bummer but Im sure I will find a place to launch. Forth pic is two step and Dan I hope you got to snorkel here as it is an Island favorite.
Aloha AK

We won't be living on the Big Island, not soon anyway.  The investment property will be a rental and then we can use it for the occasional trip.  Of course, someday we may make the move, like I said before, the Big Island is really special for so many reasons, plus, if you're a biker it's big enough to keep you happy.

One thing I wasn't too fond of were the private roads, when I tried to get to a few of the beaches they have the station houses that look like park entrances and turns out that it is private land.  I found these mostly to be on the dry side north of Kona.  I understand private property it was just a bit confusing because it isn't always very well marked and they share the same road as the beach access.

I will stay in touch for our next visit, would be fun to ride with you!

 All of Hawaii public access to the beach is mandated by law and must be provided. This includes pvt land easements for public access. Granted they can be pretty narrow with no close area to park but they are there. Signs are provided at most locations and all resorts provide access to the public as well. Just tell the gate guard you want to go to the beach. No worries. If its a marked road that ends at the beach its public access.

Dan always up for a ride if you guys come over PM me.
