SO torn on where to stay for a September trip. First big trip without the kids in 20 years. Main interest is snorkeling and are looking at vacation rentals not resorts. Would like to be on or across street from good snorkeling area--actual sandy beach is less important. I've seen rentals I like in Puako, Alii Drive just north of Kahalu'u Beach, and the Napo'opo'o area of Kealakekua Bay.
If anyone has any pro's or con's for these areas, I would love to hear them. (Or other areas I have overlooked.) I am somewhat concerned about the heat in the southern areas in September. I'm hoping if we are close enough to the water, I can just jump in when I get hot! Are nights uncomfortable even with ceiling fans this time of year?
Thanks so much.
