    The Mokuleia Polo Fields

    From Redditor u/dumb*ssthenes:

    Check out Ka'ena Point, and head to the Mokuleia polo fields for games on Sunday. It's a weird game, but no one really pays attention to it. It's just a big tailgate party.

    Boto Ponds On The Big Island

    From a former Redditor:

    Boto Ponds in the Wailuku river on the Big Island (Hilo Side). It's very hard to find the spot, pretty much have to be a local to find it. If you try to roll there as a tourist and don't know the signs the river gives, expect to not live long.
