Adventure and delicious eats are on tap this Sunday – there’s something for every Dad to enjoy here even if it’s just kicking back and relaxing on one of Hawaii Island’s spectacular Kona/Kohala Coast white sand beaches.

Combine beach and ocean fun with a delicious Father’s Day Brunch at Waikoloa Beach Resort’s Lava Lava Beach Club. Set right on the beach, get your toes in the sand and relax.

Or, extra special this year, take a once-in-a-lifetime flight over active lava flows with Paradise Helicopters. Their pilots have years of experience and are experts on Hawaiian geology, history, and culture. To book your tour phone: (866) 876-7422.
Paradise Helicopter tours feature excursions to the volcano.
Full disclosure, they do say that although eruption activity is very high at this time, they cannot guarantee that you will see “red” lava on your flight.
Following your morning flight, make a fast track up mauka (towards the mountains) to Holulaloa Town located just a few miles above Kailua-Kona. Holuakoa Gardens serves up one of the most tantalizing brunches each Sunday and Father’s Day promises some great specials in addition to the classic menu!
