Great Place to stay just a short drive from Hilo on the Big Island. Just a short drive from Black Sand Beach (Clothing optional) Owners are very friendly. They had a wine and cheese gathering in the evening.

If your idea of Hawaii is Waikiki, Don Ho, crowds, expensive activities & tours, this isn't your place. But, if you'd like to experience a peaceful authentic rural Hawaii setting amid beautiful exotic foliage, More Hangin' Loose is it. And . . . you can experience it au natural. Listen to the birds & the trade winds whispering thru the palm fronds, watch a million stars while serenaded by coqui frogs at night. Walk the grounds and see hundreds of native & exotic tropical flowers & plants. Hang out by the pool, relax in the hot tub, sunbathe on the deck, have a drink . . . get the picture? Or, visit some of the many nearby sites (almost all nearly free): Volcano National Park, clothing-optional beaches, swim nude with the dolphins, star-gaze atop Mauna Kea, check out the waterfalls, tour historic Hilo or funky Pahoa Town. Hike thru a volcano. Visit an orchid farm, or a macadamia nut plantation. Golf in Madam Pele's backyard (Volcano Golf Course). Snorkel with sea turtles. Visit a steam vent -- nature's sauna. Nude hiking along a pristine shoreline. And, much more . . . Mostly, relax & have fun. That's what Hangin' Loose is all about. Less
