Destination guide

Say aloha! to Kohala

Where are you right now? Is it good? Well, it's almost certainly not as good as the Kohala Coast. This balmy stretch of sand and ocean is just about the most desirable spot in the whole of Hawaii, and for good reason. At your Kohala Coast vacation rental you'll find yourself rubbing shoulders with some of Hawaii's flashiest resorts, whitest sand beaches, and most stellar restaurants. Add in historic sites and some remarkable marine life, and you're onto a winner. The weather's exceptional, the people are beautiful, and if Kohala isn't Hawaiian for "paradise," then it should be.

Things to do

Close encounters of the Kohala kind

A Kohala Coast vacation rental doesn't have to be all about soaking up the rays on the beach. There's plenty of culture, too. Start by checking out the largest restored temple in Hawaii, at Puukohola Heiau. Or how about a trip to Puako Petroglyph National Preserve? It's got upwards of 1,000 symbols, which were carved into the volcanic rock surface hundreds of years ago. No one knows what they mean, but it's a safe bet that among the figures of people, animals, and boats, there's some concealed message from an alien race waiting to be found.


What color do you like your sand?

Sooner or later, you're bound to end up down on the beach. The only question is going to be - which one? If you like to go with the flow (and on Hawaii, who doesn't?) head down to the white sand at Hapuna Beach State Park, a local favorite. Whichever stretch of sand you choose, you'll find water activities like paddle boarding, snorkeling, and outrigger canoe trips. Away from the sand, you've got golf courses and spas galore, or you can focus on getting close-up with the marine life. Try dolphin encounters at Dolphin quest, or glass-bottomed boat cruises.


The best of a good bunch

With its tropical location out in the Pacific Ocean, and its mountainous landscape, the Big Island of Hawaii is legendary for having most of the world's climates all in one place. The good news for your Kohala Coast vacation rental is that you're going to the best bit - while the east coast gets most of the island's rain, for the vast majority of the time, the northwest coast is sunny and dry. There are only really 2 seasons, summer and winter, but to be honest you'll struggle to spot the difference if you've come from anywhere else.

Natural features

You'll "lava" the volcanic landscapes of Kohala

The Kohala Coast is on the northwest of Hawaii's Big Island, and the landscape is a real eye-catcher. Inland you've got a volcanic landscape, with red and black rock fields, and vast upcountry ranches with a thriving cowboy "paniolo" culture. The coast itself is famous for white sand beaches, but there are black sand beaches, too (trust us, wear shoes). Venture into the water, and you'll discover all kinds of marine life, including rays, sea turtles, and dolphins. The best way to seek them out is on a kayak or guided snorkeling tour.
