Keauhou Bay is known to most visitors as a place for kayak rentals and where several popular snorkel cruises and dive boats leave from. There are also fishing boats, stand up paddle boards, a local canoe club, and a small park with picnic tables, restrooms, a pebble beach, and a sand volleyball court.

Although the water is clear and warm, this park is not recommended for swimming or snorkeling. Due to fishing and tour boat traffic the pier area is off-limits to diving and swimming, but fishing is allowed.

The easiest way to access Keauhou Bay is to drive South on Ali'i from town. Just after the dog leg at Keauhou Shopping Center, you will come to a stoplight at Kamehameha III Rd.; take a right at this stop light and head straight. The road will soon end in a cul-de-sac; parking is on the street, or in the cul-de-sac. (Note there is also a lot on your left, but that is a private lot used by one of the tour boats.)
