| The Puna Region
With its charming Pahoa Village, the Coast still has the feeling of the Old Hawaii. This is where the lush, green jungle as well as the fiery lava meet the ocean. This is where dolphins and turtles share the surf with people. Ocean Spirit is in the center of this region and all is conveniently accessible.
Nearby natural hot springs and tide pools offer awesome snorkeling, soaking and swimming in safe warm water, right at the ocean's edge. A fifteen minute drive will get you to a safe viewing area where you will see lava flowing into the sea. Or you can explore the old Hawaiian town of Pahoa a twenty minutes drive away with its wooden board walks, many restaurants and markets. And the special magic of hearing the whales blowing and slapping their tails at night, add to the magic of "oceanspirit". Come see for yourself.
Kalani Ocean side retreat is just a short walk or two minute drive away offering meals, massages and use of there pools and sauna for very reasonable rates.
The County operated bus service "Hele-On" stops one block away twice daily.
The neighbors and "locals" in Kalapana Sea View as well as the surrounding areas are relaxed, helpful, and friendly, and I have found, they will always give excellent tips on the best current things to do in the local area. So don't be afraid to schmooze a little. And don't miss Uncle Robert's at the West end of the road for a unique island experience filled with music, dance, food and local crafts on Wednesdays and music on friday and Saturday evenings. And Sea-View's very own crafts, food and farmers market every Saturday morning, the Pahoa market on Friday and the Maku'u Market on Sunday.
We also offer local guide services to show you into the hard to get to and little-known killer spots for very reasonable rates. Rates will vary depending on group size, transportation, difficulty, outfitting and duration. Please feel free to inquire.
