    Awa, beer, wine, fruit smothies, local men, lava!
    The most happening place on Big Island! Wed night market, hot food vendors, live music, dancing, men watching. Awa (Polynesian muscle relaxant beverage made from awe root), beer, wine, incredible fruit smoothies. Fridays the live band also rocks out. The whole community shows up! Walk from Gay Hawaii B&B Guest House! (Parking can be difficult). Great place to meet local gay men and check out the local surfers. You can even book a lava tour from very handsome Hawaiian guys right there!

    Awesome Thai in Historic Pahoa Town
    All fresh ingredients, many organic ingredients from the cook's own garden!!! Vegetarian as well as meat options. Spiced to your preference. Shrimp summer rolls are a must! And the option of coconut milk in the Thai iced tea is delicious!!! Discount coupons for Ning's Thai are available through Gay Hawaii Guest House (9 miles away on the Kalapana Coast).

    The BEST weekend and weekly rates on Big Island!
    If you ask for the "Gay Travel Discount" you will get the best weekly rate in the area!!! Very clean and comfortable! Private access to secluded black sand beach. Walk to Wed Farmer's Market at Uncle Robert's Awa Bar. Live Hawaiian Music, handsome local guys to check out. Local Arts and great variety of food. Kehena Beach can be a great place to skinnydip with dolphins, meet local gay folks, and tan your buns! Guests at Gay Hawaii Guest House get a discount on table Massage and warm water massage (Watsu and Aqua Nirvana). at Big Island Massage & Watsu. Go for "The Works" 45min of warm water massage followed by 45 min of table massage.... phenomenal!!! Loved sunning naked on the outdoor deck at Gay Hawaii Guest House..... You can often see the active hot lava on the hillside at night. And the milky way is amazing. Even saw shooting stars!!! BEST RATE, BEST LOCATION, MUST do Massage!

    Monday is ''Gay Day" at Kehena Beach
    A long time tradition at Kehena Beach is for the gay community to show up at the beach on Mondays. You'll meet gay people there everyday... there's a large gay community in the neighborhood. Many subdivisions in the area are over 60% gay (including Kalapana and Puna Beach Palisades). Awesome body surfing in big waves. A resident pod of spinner dolphins show up often and you could get to swim with them! Moderately steep trail down to the beach..... well worth it! Skinnydipping with dolphins! What could be more fun???
