About Kohala Coast, Hawaii

The Kohala Coast lies on the northwest portion of Hawaii. Locals divide it into two portions – north and south – to keep things simple. Both are beautiful and offer their own activities.

This section of coastline is named after Kohala Mountain – the oldest volcanic mountain on the island – and has been home to the Hawaiian people for centuries.

You'll see elements of their traditions throughout your stay – find out as much as possible as it's a fascinating culture!

The Kohala Coast is a mix of the best beaches, golf courses and luxurious villas and homes.

And, better than that, there’s a whole load of ancient temples, deep valleys and picture-perfect waterfalls within easy reach. It's really no surprise that this is a popular destination for artists from around the world.

Standing on the coastline on a clear day, you should be able to see Maui. And, if you come in winter, you might even see a humpback whale cresting the waves.

What to do

If you come to the Kohala Coast, it's very likely that you've come for the glorious beaches.

There are plenty to choose from – some of our favorites are Hapuna Beach, 49 Black Sand Beach and Anaehoomalu. Though, all beaches here have something going for them.

There are lots of activities to try; go scuba diving or snorkeling in the clear waters, see if you're any good at stand-up paddle boarding, and kayak or canoe through the calm waters to see Hawaii from a different perspective.

If you want to swim with dolphins, head to Dolphin Quest. It's an experience you'll never forget.

Find out a little about traditional Hawaii. Go to Mo'okini Heiau – a living spiritual temple that was commissioned by King Kamehameha I (the first king of the unified Hawaiian Islands), who was born in north Kohala.

Ask residents about the traditions of the area – they'll be happy to tell you about it.

Go to the Bond Historic District to find out a little about the homesteading period in Hawaii. The 19th century mission still stands today as a reminder of these events.
