ALL ABOUT HAWAII

Hotspots >

The Kohala region is characterized by a climactic diversity ranging from the lush tropical Pololu valley and black sand beaches of the North koala Coast, to the rolling green hills and cattle country of Waimea, to the parched should coastline and white sand beaches of the South Kohala resort region. Kohala is graced with important Hawaiian cultural sites that include the Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, Mookini Heiau and King Kamehameha' birthplace. While tourism has replaced sugarcane and cattle production as the chief economic engine, visitors still have many opportunities to enjoy activities such as hiking, mule riding and kayaking that provide an experience that brings to life Kohala of the past when Hawaiian royalty, or sugar and cattle, were dominant. Waimea, the largest of the region's small towns has a character that reflects its long and continuing Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) tradition, serves as the region's commercial hub providing an assortment of interesting shops and eateries.
