Located in the Puna District of Hawaii's Big Island, Kapoho offers everything one can imagine from a postcard perfect vacation paradise. The beaches here are stunning, and the protected biodiversity of the area makes for extraordinary scuba diving and whale watching opportunities. Kapoho Bay offers especially beautiful coastline trails where crystal tide pools showcase a dazzling population of colorful urchins and sea stars.
But what makes Kapoho unique among all the districts of the Big Island is its volcanic history. One of Kilauea's most historic eruptions took place in 1960, which resulted in a slow moving flow that gradually encased the buildings of an entire town. The Cape Kumukahi Lighthouse remained standing, one of the few structures to survive. The area now draws visitors from all over the world who come to see nature's destructive power and astonishing resilience.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip to Kapoho:
No matter what time of year you decide to schedule your visit to Kapoho, you'll have no trouble finding a perfect place to stay. It's always summer here and vacation rentals are always available.
