Since 2003, the Kona Surf Film Festival has been an exhibition of surf films from around the world.
This year, the Mauna Lani Hotel Bay and Bungalows is offering special rates for the 2011 event, held December 2 and 3 at the hotel. Proceeds go to the Sea-Thos Foundation, which “exists to promote education and awareness of the human impact on the world’s oceans.”
Early December is a fabulous time to visit the Big Island—between the crazy, busy week of Thanksgiving and before the insane week of Christmas to New Years’, tourism is typically slow, and residents are focused on celebrating the holidays with their friends, ‘ohana, and co-workers.
The weather tends to be beautiful and you’ll likely see an early season whale or two. With good rates at the world-class Mauna Lani Hotel, and the holiday spirit in the air, why not?
