Our Hawaiian Vacation: Eighth Stop of Two Day Circle Tour

This post continues details of our two-day circular driving tour of the island of Hawaii, which we began on our ninth day in Hawaii (May 25th). Our first stop was at South Point.  Our next three stops were in the towns of Waiohinu and Naalehu. Our fifth stop was at Punalu’u Beach Park, near the town of Pahala. All five of these stops were in the South Island region. Our sixth stop was at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our seventh stop was at Lava Tree State Park. Our eighth stop of the day was at Isaac Hale (Pohoiki) Beach Park. Both Lava Tree State Park and Isaac Hale Beach Park are located in the Puna region near the town of Pahoa.
According to aWikipedia article, Isaac Hale Beach Park “is an oceanfront park, boat launch and surf location along Pohoiki Bay…It is only one of a few places in the Southeast shore of Hawaii that allows for such facilities. Pohoiki Bay is known for its strong currents and although the park is known for good snorkeling, conditions are usually not ideal…The park is named in honor of Private Isaac K. Hale. During the Korean War, Hale served in the United States Army’s 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division. He was killed in action north of the 38th parallel on July 12, 1951.”

Here are a few photographs of things that we enjoyed while at Isaac Hale Beach Park.

D5253730 4x6We enjoyed watching a water skier fly across the water.

D5253739 4x6We enjoyed watching a body surfer glide across the waves.

From Isaac Hale Beach Park we drove to Hilo (letter “J” on the map). We spent the night in Hilo at Uncle Billy’s Hotel, where we were lulled to sleep by the melodious sound of hundreds of coqui frogs.

Stay tuned! In my next Hawaiian blog post, I’ll provide details and photographs of Hilo.

    You're still in Hawaii? Must be nice. We stayed at Hilo for a few dys. Stayed at the hotel with canals and boats that take you to your rooms, Polynesian masks and artifacts lining the wall, and swimming with the dolphins. The food was lousy though outsie the hotel. Have fun. Looking forward to the pics.Stephen Tremp

    @Stephen Tremp – No, we are not still in Hawaii. We were in Hawaii for 2 weeks in May. I have so much to share from that vacation that I am still blogging about it!
