With summer just weeks away, families are planning their vacations, many who intend to head toward fabulous resorts and beautiful beaches. As luxury real estate professionals on the Big Island, we know a thing or two about the area that surrounds us! If you’re trying to decide just which hotels and beaches are kid-friendly, we have a few suggestions!

Of course you may not have even decided which of the Hawaiian Islands you want to visit yet, but there are definitely differences! The Big Island is the destination of many active families who enjoy hiking trails, an amazing food scene, snorkeling with dolphins, and of course experiencing an active volcano. Besides all that, it’s a place where you can enjoy golfing, just laying on the spectacular beaches, pampering yourself at a spa, and luxury amenities.

As far as kid-friendly hotels, which are the favorites of luxury travelers?

The Four Seasons Hualalai is spectacular, and caters to families with children. From children’s menus to toys and “Little Swimmers” diapers, families flock to this resort, known for its great programs for kids. Set on the Kona-Kohala Coast, this oceanfront luxury resort truly captures the essence of our state’s culture and tradition. The Four Seasons Hualalai provides babysitting services, concierge to help you arrange activities that are suitable for your family in terms of age/interests, and much more.

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is a luxury property located on the Kohala Coast that offers world-class tennis and golf facilities, beautiful white-sand beaches, and a fine dining experience like no other. If a relaxed atmosphere is what you’re after, you’ll love staying at this hotel where you can stock your own mini-fridge and enjoy watching television on a flat-screen TV after a fun-filled day at the beach or golf course!

With countless beaches to choose from, some of the best include Kukio Beach (also known as Four Seasons Beach) where you’ll find restrooms, showers, and peaceful surroundings. Beach 69 in Waialea offers shade, picnic tables so the family can enjoy lunch, and calm waters that are ideal for little swimmers. The Mauna Kea beach offers calm water that’s clear and blue, along with restroom facilities and sparse shade located near the path that leads from the parking facilities. The Black Sand beach is another good choice for families with restrooms, picnic tables, showers, and even a few turtles every now and then!

Of course there are countless luxury hotels and accommodations on the Big Island, and so many beaches it’s impossible to name them all. There’s truly nothing like a family vacation on the Big Island when you want to have fun, experience an entirely different culture, relax, and enjoy your time away!
