Top 5 For the Beach Bum

Hawaii Things to do Vacation Rentals

Summer and early fall are the best times to enjoy the beaches of Hawaii. The waters are calmer, the weather is perfect, and the beaches are not crowded. So if you are not a fan of big waves and like to relax, swim, snorkel, or just frolic in the sun, that is the best time to do it.

Big Island’s Gold Kohala Coast boasts beautiful white sand beaches, all located within our famous luxury resorts. We covered these beaches extensively in this blog post and now would like to feature our top five condos that any beach-goer would appreciate.
