Putting the "Beach" in Beach Bar
If searching for turtles, sticking your feet in warm afternoon sand, and sipping a mai tai are your idea of a perfect day on the Big Island of Hawaii, you'll want to loll about at Lava Lava Beach Club. A place where locals and tourists both feel comfortable to take a break, the adirondack chairs perched in the sand are a welcoming sight on the sunny shores of Waikoloa. The beach club's island atmosphere and carefully crafted cocktails, including a coconut, ginger, pineapple, lilikoi-flavored Gilligan's girl or the Okole Maluna (bartenders daily special), make this spot in the sand a special place. Patrons can also chill out with a Hawaii beer and energize from a "farm-to-beach" inspired menu that includes as many ingredients sourced from the Big Island as possible.

During my rather corporate stay at the bland Hilton Waikoloa, this little beach bar/restaurant next door was a refreshing and fun change. Great atmosphere, good food.
