Welcome To Discovery Harbour
Discovery Harbour is one of the southern most communities in the United States. Off highway 11, it is located 60 miles south from Kona International Airport, 30 miles from Volcanoes National Park, and 60 miles from the town of Hilo. Because of its location and altitude (around 950 feet above sea level), the climate is mild with temperatures ranging between 70 degrees in the winter to 86 degrees in the summer. The trade winds beginning early afternoon keep the temperature at a very comfortable level.
Wake up to the smell of fresh air and a magnificent sunrise every single morning. Enjoy cloud formations that are unusual and beautiful. Know you are within driving distance to the clearest, warmest ocean water in the United States. Drive over to Black Sand Beach, only minutes away off highway 11 to see ducks in the pond, turtles (an endangered species) resting on the sand, swim beside other sea life in the ocean, and watch the waves crashing along the lava rocks. You can drive to other white or tan sand beaches where swimming with beautiful fish and perhaps a turtle or two is very common. Be sure to bring your snorkeling gear to see the magnificent corals and more. Visit Green Sands Beach where the sand is truly green against the beautiful clear water. Then before retiring for the evening, enjoy looking at the stars seeing each constellation more vividly than ever before.
It is far enough away from the major cities to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Big Island, yet convenient enough to be comfortable and active. The community of Discovery Harbour overlooks all of South Point known for its green sand beach. If you enjoy green mountains and ocean views surrounding you, to say nothing of the people and golf course, then this is the place for you.
A big Mahalo to Liz Stevens for the above eloquent description of our community.
