- The beauty of this cottage is that it is right across the street from the ocean on Puako Beach Drive. Paniau Beach is right across the street and when surf is up it is a favorite place for local surfers to enjoy the surf! It is a great place to wander across and watch a spectacular sunset or go for an early morning coastal walk, shore dive or snorkel. Close enough for a shoreline walk to the Fairmont Orchid Hotel at Mauna Lani Resort....moreless

Right across the street from Surfer's and Fisherman's beach known as Paniau at the very end of Puako Beach Drive. Puako Beach Drive has no thorough thru access which keeps it virtually still undiscovered by many. Original beach shacks next to stately homes as well as charming beach cottages that some owner's have preserved. There are homes along the ocean side as well as across the street from the ocean. There are six separate 'beach' accesses along this stretch of beach. Although there is not a tremendous amount of sand, there are tide pools and the extensive protected reef is remarkable. During low tide, small pools dot the entire coastline and these pools are filled with small sea life that make excellent areas to explore for all ages. ...moreless

Puako Beach is a charming beach community nestled between the Mauna Lani Resort and Hapuna Beach on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. Puako is still the only ocean front residential community along the Gold Coast/Kohala Coast of the Big Island nestled between the Mauna Lani Resort, Fairmont Orchid and Mauna Kea/Hapuna Resorts.
Hapuna Beach State Park, just a few minutes drive from here, has earned the reputation of being one of Hawaii Island's finest beaches. It is the largest White Sands Beach on The Big Island and consistently rates on Top Ten lists internationally. Hapuna Beach offers some wonderful opportunities for swimming, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, sunbathing and snorkeling and is just a mile from Puako. You can even drive the back road to Hapuna Beach and not get on the Highway. Local shore fisherman can be seen daily enjoying the great reef fishing.
Puako Beach Drive has no thru access which keeps it virtually still undiscovered by many. Original beach shacks next to stately homes as well as charming beach cottages that some owner's have preserved. There are homes along the ocean side as well as across the street from the ocean. There are six separate 'beach' accesses along this stretch of beach. Although there is not a tremendous amount of sand, there are tide pools and the extensive protected reef is remarkable. During low tide, small pools dot the entire coastline and these pools are filled with small sea life that make excellent areas to explore for all ages. If you enjoy shore diving, kayaking and snorkeling you can find a spot along this stretch of shoreline to enter the water. Offshore the reef is home to a wide variety of fish and many days you will see dolphins playing right from the shore. Enjoy the Whales who return each year to mate and give birth in the tropical warm waters during the winter months.
Puako is a place of activity and rejuvenation. There is so much to do or nothing at all. Sunsets are celebrated by most who live and visit Puako every evening.
The views of Mauna Kea Mountain will take your breath away when you turn around to the East on a clear day. In the winter months you might have the opportunity to sit at the beach and see snow not the mountain.
Along the Kohala Coast, the Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve features more than a thousand petroglyphs, or kii pohaku, lava rock carvings etched into stone centuries ago by Native Hawaiians. Although the true meanings of the petroglyphs are unknown, it is generally thought these carvings are records of births and other significant events in the lives of the people who lived on Hawaii Island long ago.
Just a short walk to the Fairmont Orchid Hotel, Holoholokai Beach (a well manicured beach-park with facilities) and the Mauna Lani Resort, or from the South end of Puako, start at Paniau Beach and walk along the coast to the Petroglyphs and you can see the carvings of human forms, canoes, turtles and others in the captivating petroglyphs fields of Puako. Take the kids on a petroglyph hunt and ask them what they think these ancient symbols could mean. On a full moon some of has have been known to walk to the petroglyph field from the South end of Puako where the lava is so lit up from the moon that we haven't needed a flashlight. It's been said that the ancient Hawiians walked at night as it was cooler.
Hapuna Beach offers some wonderful opportunities for swimming during calm seas offering crystal clear water and beautiful scenery, bodysurfing, bodyboarding during periods of high surf with waves reaching 3 feet high for experts! During these high surf times there are dangerous rip currents and pounding shore breaks so those not familiar should stay out of the water. There are Lifeguard services. Sunbathing (and looking at all of the sunbathers) with limited shade, so if it's not windy, umbrellas can be seen lining the beach. Snorkeling is a favorite activity at Hapuna Beach and is just a mile from Puako. You can even drive the back road to Hapuna Beach and not get on the Highway. It is located off Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway (Highway 19, 2.3 miles south of Kawaihae Harbor and is open daily during daylight hours. There is a coastal trail called Ala Kahakai Trail that goes from Kawaihae-Anaehoomalu mostly along the coast. 61.8 acres with restrooms, picnic pavilions, picnic tables, showers, trash cans, drinking water, payphone and lifeguard services and lots of parking. In recent years there has been a beach hut cafe to purchased food.
