Getting to Know Hawaii, Hualalai

Local Time: 9:27 pm Local Weather: 26°C / 79°F  /  Fair

Set on the North Kona Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, Hualalai at Ka‘upulehu is a dramatic mix of fine white sand, dazzling turquoise ocean and black-lava landscapes. A destination of enchanting natural beauty, this area is the cradle of Hawaiian civilisation. Secluded and peaceful, near intriguing sites of Hawaii’s royal history and hundreds of coffee farms producing Kona coffee beans, Hualalai is a premier locale for seeing green sea turtles. The endangered turtles can be spotted at Turtle Pinnacle near Honokohau Harbor and the Honokohau Beach. Explore the nearby Pu‘uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park with its royal grounds and 17th-century temple—a burial site for 23 Hawaiian chiefs—or the Hulihe‘e Palace, a Victorian-style summer home built in 1938. Coffee lovers may tour the Kona Coffee Living History Farm or Greenwell Farms, established in 1850 and still a major coffee producer. Several hours away: evocative Volcanoes National Park, with two of the world’s most active volcanoes.
