And I must say that the Kona Community Aquatic Center is my absolute favorite place to work out! This is a gorgeous 50-meter Facility with... More

I swim daily at home so finding a lap pool on vacation is a big plus. The water felt great! I think it's just the perfect temperature. You can call the contact phone number above for the current daily hours which will be on a recorded message. Enjoy!

This pool is clean, easy to get to, and free! We really enjoyed spending a couple of hours in the pool...water was the perfect temperature. Locker rooms were clean and roomy. Great spot to enjoy the warm sunny weather.

The aquatic center is really great. Fine pools and excellent treatment. People are nice and I always swim there for free during the Ironman week.

Clean, safe, ample parking, attentive lifeguards, lots of laps. Don't go to the locker rooms without your slippers! Otherwise, great for the price.
