Punalu’u Beach – Rainy Day VibesπŸ–πŸ˜ƒπŸŒžπŸŒ΄

Check out the new video posted on my channelπŸ‘‰youtube.com/watch

Even rainy days are beautiful days in Hawaii. πŸ˜€The video above shows a rainy day at the beach. I arrived there before the rain started so the weather was overcast. This was the first time that I had visited the beach and I still had a great time.

This beach is very conveniently located about 30 minutes from the Volcano Park in Hilo. So if you are visiting the area, you have another great attraction to visit!

Black sand is very cool to the touch even on a hot day. I had never visited a black sand beach but it will not be my last time. I definitely recommend visiting this beach should your travel plans take you to the Big Island πŸπŸ˜ƒ!

Check out the new video posted on my channel here πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/GM5QNLhDkMQ

I had an awesome time visiting Kona Hawaii and having the pleasure of staying at this gorgeous resortπŸ˜ƒ! This hotel is top notch and it will exceed any expectations that you might have.

In the video, you will get a glimpse of the exceptionally manicured landscape and the beautiful beach vibes. I wish I could have stayed longer there, it was an absolute joy. Truly one of the best part of waking up is enjoying all that the Fairmont has to offer.

As you can see from the video, I was there oa a very windy day. This trip provided a welcomed escape from a year worth of cancelled trips and despair. If you have an opportunity, check out this magnificent destination. You will definitely not regret it πŸ˜„

Sailing ⛡️ on the High Seas of Cabo San Lucas πŸ˜€

If you have never been to Cabo San Lucas or even if you have, feel free to check out this video: youtube.com/shorts/DgcmgS7VI2s

This was quite an experience, taking a boat tour out to the beautiful waters of Cabo San Lucas. For me it was a dream come true. This trip was booked through Trip Advisor and what a magnificent trip it was.

The video shows a glimpse of Lovers Beach which is located right outside of the world famous Cabo San Lucas Arch! You will see more of the Arch in later posts. There is also a Divorce Beach nearby πŸ˜‚, which I thought was very funny!

The tour includes views of not just Lovers Beach πŸ– and the Arch but also other views (i.e. Neptune’s Finger, Pathway to the Pacific etc). If you love sailing, you will love this glass bottom boat tour!

Los Cabos – Mexico Adventure πŸŒ΄πŸ– β˜€οΈ 😎

Adventure waits in sunny Los Cabos Mexico: Truly one of the best beach resorts that I have ever visited. Make this resort a must see when you are visiting the Cabo San Lucas area:πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/6GYr2alroaM

This beach is one of only a few swimmable beaches in Los Cabos. Due to the rough waters that are encountered in the ocean, swimming is not advisable and is often discouraged. I thankfully did my research before coming to this part of Mexico, so I was well prepared.

Everything about this resort was first class. From the beautiful views, wonderful amenities and the immaculate landscaping,it is clearly one of the best resorts that I have been blessed to stay in. You certainly will not be disappointed. The staff is very friendly and cater to your every want and need.

The hotel rooms were spacious and very comfortable and provided the beautiful ocean view that you can witness above when clicking on the link.

Balcony Goals – Hilton Waikoloa – Ocean Tower πŸ˜»πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸ–πŸ™Œ

Look no further for balcony goals than right hereπŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/cxa-_HTUaIo. What a magnificent place to spend an excellent vacation. The place is totally heaven on earth 🌍 and I wholeheartedly recommend it! πŸ˜€ Certainly the pictures do not do it justice – you have to see for yourself.

Imagine waking up to a view like this everyday. Views like these, in my mind, is why people travel. It is an awareness of how really small we are in this big wonderful world. In addition to this view, I remember waking up to the sound of the birds 🐦 chirping. The resort is currently being renovated to a timeshare property so make your plans accordingly if you plan to travel to the Big Island of Hawaii soon.

Hope that you enjoy the video in the link above and that you have a great day as well! Stay safe and healthy πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ™Œ

La’ Aloa Bay Beach ParkπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜»πŸ–

Excellent beach views while driving along the streets of Kona Hawaii. This has been an absolute dose of paradise that has been greatly needed. Please check out the link here: πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/H92Z13vAfKA

In addition to beautiful black sand beaches (which have been discussed and shown in previous posts), and green sand beaches, the link above shows a traditional white sand beach. La’ Aloa Bay Beach Park was definitely a sight for sore eyes πŸ‘€ πŸ˜€. It is located in the heart of the downtown area, near where the IronMan competition is held.

On this day, it was so beautiful outside, and the water was nice and so very warm. That is why there were so many people there. Getting the daily dose of Vitamin Sea is so important and I am so glad that I got mine from visiting this great place! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

Walking into the weekend on Punalu’u Beach πŸ– 😎 🌴

Fun times visiting Punalu’u Beach Park youtube.com/watch it was such a blast. I never knew how much I missed these vibes until I got the opportunity to visit it for the first time since 2020. Sand beneath and sky above = peace within 🀩.

There is something about the combination of waves, sun, sand and sound of the ocean that becomes so very addicting. There is absolutely no way to get enough of this great vibe. It is so very addicting, so you long to go again.

This was a beautiful day on the beach πŸ– with not a bunch of people visiting on this particular Friday. From my hotel, it took about an hour to get here but it was so well worth it.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about this particular beach πŸ– if you are thinking of visiting Hawaii in the near future.

Chasing Waterfalls in the Aloha State!!πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

The song says to not go chasing waterfalls but to stick the rivers and the lakes that you are used to. I did not take this advice but decided that I would go chase waterfalls anyway because there are so many pretty ones in Hawaii. πŸ˜‚ I had fun exploring this particular one (Kahuna Falls)youtube.com/shorts/r5MAo76VCrw

It was certainly a magnificent one, and I will never forget the experience as long as I live. It was a rainy day that day but I was not deterred but was rather determined to take the mountainous trek to see my first ever waterfall πŸ˜ƒ.

It was as if we were walking through a rainforest. I could not believe the beauty of the green forest along with the beautiful rivers and streams that were encountered during the hike to Kahuna Falls.

The experience left me with a lifetime of memories, beholding the beauty of a waterfall and experiencing the thin air of the hiking in a mountain that was several thousands of feet in elevation.

Hope that you enjoy the experience captured in this video. Stay safe and healthy 😷 πŸ™Œ

VolcanoesπŸŒ‹ in Hawaii (so amazing 🀩)!

One of the most interesting places that I visited during my time on the Big Island in Hawaii was the Volcano National Park. What a great place to visit while you are in Hawaii! 😊 This was one of the sights that was included in the Deluxe Volcano Experience that Kailani Tours offers in their tour package.

The Volcano Experience offers a comprehensive tour of the island (coffee tour in Kona, Punalu’u Beach Park, etc.) The richness of the experience is seeing a live, active volcano πŸŒ‹ before your very eyes – which is a phenomenal experience. The tour takes you to Mount Kilauea where you can take pictures of the volcano both in the day and at night after you have finished the tour provided dinner.

Here is a quick video of Mount Kilauea in the day. It was wonderful to behold. My night pictures were too dark to share here but you will get the idea. To see more sights and sounds of Hawaii and other epic locations, feel free to follow me at travelfitguru on every social media platform. Enjoy 😊!

A week in Paradise πŸ– 🌴 β˜€οΈ

It was a very long time coming but I finally took my first trip since the pandemic on last week. It was a trip to a location that for years, had been on the bucket list. That location was Hawaii! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ƒ

Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (via Kona) was a complete dream come true! I could not believe my eyes seeing the picturesque landscape of mountains, beaches, waterfalls (oh my πŸ˜ƒ). One more thing, Hawaii has volcanoes πŸŒ‹. Truly unbelievable having all of the above in one location literally miles away from one another. The climate and elevation changed as you drove through the mountains and adventured to the Volcano State Park. You went from 85 degrees Fahrenheit on the beach to between 30 and 40 degrees at the volcano and in the mountains.

The people were so very friendly and so accommodating! Some of the best folks that I have ever met. I can truly say that out of all the various places that I have visited, this is truly the best. Here is a video of the sights and sounds of this beautiful paradise. More to come..
