A day trip to Kona Coast State Park makes for a great family outing.  The beaches here are just right for swimming and sunbathing.  Plenty of shaded picnic facilities are available.  Parents should watch children closely as there are no lifeguards.

Kids will love visiting the Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm,  where many of these interesting creatures, as well as other marine life, are on display.  Reservations are required and can be purchased ahead of time online.

For an evening of fun with the family, head to the Swing Zone,  Adults will love the driving range and kids will have fun on the mini-golf course and in the batting cages.  Lots of other games and snacks are available on the grounds.

Families can enjoy spending time together on one the various organized excursions offered around the island, such as a helicopter tour, a dolphin watching trip, or spend a whole day fishing aboard one of the fishing charters offered in the area.
