Where to Stay with Tweens - Kailua-Kona or Kohala Coast

Jump to last reply

We are going to the Big Island in early August, and trying to figure out best place to stay. We have a 9- and 11-year-old, and the younger is not such a strong swimmer. He can't tread water yet.

I've found a condo on VRBO at Vista Waikoloa that is within walking distance of A Bay, which sounds like a nice beach for swimming and snorkeling. Our neighbor, who goes to the Big Island every Christmas, always stays at Sea Village, and thinks we should stay there because of the views and proximity to the water. The beach off the property is rocky, so not sure how my son would do there, though my neighbor says the snorkeling is absolutely awesome.

Thoughts about Vista Waikoloa vs. Sea Village as a base? We will check out other beaches, so perhaps what the closest beach is like is not that important.
