KOHALA COAST (BIG ISLAND)
The rugged lava fields north of Kona International Airport lead to south end of the Kohala Coast, which is home to more than a half dozen resorts as well as Hapuna Beach State Park. The park features on of the Big Island’s largest white-sand beaches. In addition to recreation and relaxation, the area’s Waikoloa Resort offers a glimpse at the island’s past by way of its Anaehoomalu Petroglyph field. Another cultural must-see: PuuKohola Heiau National Historic Site, the largest restored heiau (temple) in the Islands. Toward coast’s north end is Pololu Valley one of the most strikingly beautiful, if little-visited, valleys in Hawaii.
