Additional Location Information
Hale Kukui is a great stepping stone to the whole island. Walk or drive to the Waipio Lookout only 1/2 mile away. The black sand beach in the old cultural of Hawaii in Waipio Valley is a must see for its river and mountains that meet the sea surrounded by cliffs! It is worth the trip to see this valley alone (another mile down a steep winding 25% grade road) Explore the quaint town of Honoka'a 10 minutes away with its theater, restaurants, grocery store, several charming shops selling locally made goods, outdoor farmers market and a hospital/clinic. Hiking, Biking, horseback riding, camping, and surfing are all accessible between Kukuihaele, Waipio Valley and Honoka'a. Walk to the Valley Artworks shop in Kukuihaele for island made ice cream and locally made gift items and local artwork.
Find Akaka Falls, the world famous botanical gardens and much more as you drive along the beautiful lush Hamakua coast toward Hilo 55 minutes away.
In the other direction from Honoka'a, you may smell eukalyptus on your way to the cooler climate in Waimea (Kamuela) which will have more shopping choices and several restaurants, many of which specialize in using mainly local ingredients. Andy recommends Merriman's for the best seafood and Kailua pork quesadillas.
White sand beaches, Resorts and the larger hotels are a 50-70 minutes drive accross to the West side of the island.
Mauna Kea is 13,803 feet above sea level, the highest point in Hawaii. Mauna Kea can be driven to the top and it is the tallest mountain in the world when measured from the sea floor.Thirteen telescopes funded by eleven countries have been constructed at the summit. The Mauna Kea Observatories are used for scientific research across the electromagnetic spectrum from visible light to radio and it's summit is one of the best sites in the world for astronomical observation. Mauna Kea is a dormant volcano with it's last eruption over 4,600 years ago.
Hilo has a great outdoor market, shopping and surfing, It is a beautiful 1 hour drive along the Hamakua coast to this destination.30 minutes from Hilo you can swim in the hot ponds near Pahoa. Then on to the must see Volcanoes National Park. Kona is about 1.5 hours away along very nice highways.
Make sure and try Hamakua Coast coffee which many say is better than the world famous Kona coffee served at the White House.
The whole island has so much to offer but you will definitely want to relax at Hale Kukui for its incredible views and natural private surroundings. Each cottage has its own kitchen or kitchenette, full bathroom, wireless internet and don't forget about the soaking tub on each lanai to help you relax after a day of adventures while you smell the fruits from the orchard, listen to the ocean and stargaze.
