Recently, my wife and I spent a week in Kailua-Kona on the big island of Hawaii.
We spent a day at Hapuna State Beach approximately 35 miles north of Kailua-Kona. What a great beach (see my separate post on the Beach)!
We walked a short distance along the beach into the Hapuna Beach Hotel complex for lunch. As long as you are reasonably covered up and don't look like derelict's, the hotel attendants will let you walk up to the pool bar for drinks and/or lunch.
The Beach Bar is gorgeous - sitting just outside their large pool-side bar and with a view of the pool, surrounding palm trees and the ocean off in the distance as a back-drop.
I ordered an 8 oz. grass-fed beef burger with fries and my wife had a lunch salad topped with fresh Ono. Our food was absolutely delicious. I ordered their signature Mai-Tai and she had a glass of very nice white wine for lunch. I have to say - that was probably the best Mai-Tai I have ever had!!
The service was great and the ambiance just right.
If you are ever in the area, the Beach Bar at the Hapuna Beach Hotel in Kohala is absolutely terrific!
