Explore a paradise where island treasures abound.
During your stay at Marriott's Waikoloa Ocean Club, you will be able to explore jungle trails on foot or horseback, trek ancient lava tubes, stroll black sand beaches and wander through colorful towns. Or you may set your sights even higher and tour active volcanoes or the snowcapped summit of Mauna Kea.
Play a round or two on Waikoloa — the golf capital of Hawaii — at Waikoloa Beach Golf Resort. Located on the sunny Kohala Coast of Big Island, it features two local championship golf courses which offer unparalleled golf opportunities for players of all levels.
Hiking & sightseeing
Hike hundreds of trails through old lava tubes at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Visit Volcano Winery, located between two active volcanoes, and taste local wines inspired by the island's natural bounty. Take a half-mile hike through a lush rainforest park at Akaka State Park. Or enjoy incredible stargazing at 9,200 feet near the summit of Mauna Kea.
Shop for upscale clothing, jewelry, gifts, souvenirs, Kona coffee and more at Waikoloa Kings' Shops and Queens' Marketplace. Both resort-style malls offer an enticing collection of boutiques, galleries, markets and more. You can also find shopping, dining and cultural attractions in Kailua-Kona Village.
Beaches on the Big Island are usually less crowded and offer a variety of recreational options. You may discover calm waters and high visibility — ideal conditions for snorkeling — at Honaunau Bay, also known as the City of Refuge. The Big Island also offers surfing for all levels, including surf schools and beginner spots on the Kona side of the island.
