Waikoloa is our favorite area to stay on Hawaii’s Big Island. This charming section of the Kohala Coast feels like a destination unto itself and if you use it as a hopping-off point to tour the rest of the island (you’ll need a rental), it’s a great area to come home to each night.

The beaches in this area are phenomenal. This sparkling two-bedroom condo is close to the beach, walking distance to the King’s and Queen’s shops, and very close to grocery and dining options.
