There are many things to do in Waimea, Hawaii. When you stay at Mauna Lani Point, you are perfectly situated to try a wide variety of activities and events. From visiting a white, sandy beach, to riding a horse on a ranch, or seeing ancient petroglyphs, there are almost too many things to try on your vacation. Here are a few of our favorites:
Visit a Ranch
Kahua Ranch was founded in 1928, and is home to the famous evening sunset dinner. When you attend this event, you’ll sit around an open campfire, hearing stories about the history and founding of the ranch, before heading to a dinner buffet complete with steak from the ranch itself, Kona beer, and macadamia nut pie for desert. Later, you’ll be able to line dance, play horseshoes, and learn to rope! Kahua Ranch is rated as the top thing to do in Waimea, and is located about 40 minutes north of Mauna Lani Point resort.
Visit a White Sandy Beach
Spencer Beach State Park is well-known as an arid beach with white sands. There is a large reef off the beach, which protects the beach, making the water calm enough for the entire family to enjoy! Reviewers on TripAdvisor say the beach is much more private than others in the area, offering a quite spot to relax and enjoy the sun and surf!
Check out Petroglyphs
There are some great petroglyphs on the Big Island. The Pukau Petroglyph Preserve is less than ten minutes from Mauna Lani Point resort. At this location you can see about 1,200 petroglyphs, with over 3,000 designs! You can spot a dog, chicken, dancers, paddlers sails marchers, and other great drawings! Another great spot to see petroglyphs is at the Waikoloa Petroglyph Field. Reviewers have said that this location is “better than the petroglyphs at the national volcano park,” and that they are “up to 2000” years old. Also located less than 15 minutes away from your condo at Mauna Lani Point, it is one of the top things to do in Waimea. If you’d like a guide there are guided petroglyph tours that take place every Friday at 9:30am (learn more on our events page).
