Enjoy exploring the historic plantation towns around Keaau, and there are several tropical flower gardens and nurseries within a short drive of town. The temperatures here are balmy, and Keaau is a great place to sit back and unwind and enjoy the fragrant Pacific Trade Winds.

WHAT TO PACK: The Island of Hawaii, aka the Big Island, boasts over 4,000 square miles and 10 different climate zones, within which are many micro climate zones. You may think that packing your favorite swimsuit and slippers (flip flops) is enough, but not true if you plan on doing any hiking or sightseeing around the island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park can get quite chilly with temperatures dropping down to the low 40s at night, sometimes lower, so do bring your favorite warm pajamas and at least a light jacket. It actually snows often on Mauna Kea, but they close those roads whenever there are blizzard conditions present. If you plan on doing a lava hike, you should consider bringing your hiking boots, as you’ll want good ankle support for this 1/2-day or more experience. At the very least, bring a solid pair of tennis shoes and don’t attempt the lava hike in flip flops. - 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-7) - Beds: 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Twin/Double bunkbed - Television/Dish TV - NO INTERNET SERVICE AT THIS TIME – Please bring your own wifi device or use your cell phone - Full Kitchen - All Cooking Utensils - Microwave - Dishwasher - DVD/CD Player - Lots of DVDs - BBQ Grill - Gas - Washer & Dryer - Many Restaurants Close - No Smoking - No Pets - Hilo 30 min. - Kilauea 2 min.

A Hawaiian salt scrub in particular is very popular because this is a great way to cleanse the skin and look much better and more relaxed.

Panaewa Rainforest Zoo: This zoo is full of lots of rainforest animals. It is free to enter and explore. It's small but this does mean that you can get up close and personal with all of the animals.

Kilauea Volcano National Park: Kilauea Volcano national park is located 6 miles away from Keaau in a town called Pahoea. Kilauea is an attraction that you really must see if you're visiting Keaau or anywhere close in Hawaii. Drive through this area during the day and you will get to see some amazing changes in the lava rock and how it changes throughout the week and month. All of Hawaii is formed by volcanic activity and there are still lots of beautiful volcanoes which are worth visiting.

Konu Honu Divers: This divers' tour company is located 8 miles away from Keaau but it's worth a visit for anyone who loves diving.
