“wide open beach”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Kailua-Kona has mostly little pocket beaches, but take the time to find this gem. It's long and wide and beautiful. Plus there's a beautiful garden on the other side of the parking lot. Worth the search.

“Old Kona airport was my favorite place to walk along the ocean!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

When I am in Kona I like to walk at the old Kona airport. The runway is about a mile and a half, so you can keep track of how much you are walking. there are picnic areas, or just bring a lawn chair and sit by the water. You have the ocean on one side, the mountain view on the other side.

“Neat spot to stop and take in the fresh air”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Nice semi-secluded spot not talked about much. It was a nice spot to stop and put your toes into the water.

“A nice mellow beach park”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

They have a great walking/running path. Lot's of volunteers take time to plant, grow and maintain little garden areas. The beach is nice, places to bbq and hold group functions. It will be great someday when they tear up the old runway and repave.

“Best Kept secret in Kailua Kona”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

If you are looking for a wonderful place to walk or run through unique tropical gardens in Kona look no further. The locals have small gardens that they have tended with aloha. The result is a lovely park like oceanside walk with places to stop with your picnic. It is free and well worth the visit
