Great dive if staying in Kailua-Kona. Good parking on either side. There are shower facilities for after the dive. Short walk down to the entry, rocky but easy to navigate to the water. Easy in and short snorkel. Nice reefs, caves, and lava tubes. Abundant fish life. Locals in the area say there are three caves with sharks and guarding them, but we did not find the sharks.

My favorite dive site so far in Kona. Park is crowded with both tourists and locals, so get there early. Free parking is tight but you can always shell out 2 bucks for a spot. Very easy entry on lava steps. Awesome visibility and abundant Hawaiian fish and turtles. We started at the "ALOHA" sign and circled around from there, went down to about 80ft but found the shallower depths (30-40ft) had more interesting fish.
