Pioneer store is the home of the Kona Historical Society. The store has been refurbished and stocked to depict the era at the turn of the last century. Role playing in period shopping.
The dolphins sometimes show up to sleep in the mornings. The reefs are glorious with lots of fish. I always see eels & turtles.
One of the most sacred sites and historically amazing places on the island from a cultural perspective. Imagine you had just broken the sacred laws, the kapu, and the only punishment was death. Your only chance of survival is to elude your pursuers and reach the Pu'uhonua, a place of refuge. The Pu'uhonua protected the kapu breaker, defeated warriors, as well as civilians during the time of battle. No harm could come to those who reached the boundaries of the place of refuge.
This is a favorite beach for the locals. Located in Napo'opo'o Village this beach offers excellent snorkeling, picnic area and a great place to watch the sunset.

Kealakekua means "Pathway to the Gods" and this protected Bay is a marine wildlife refuge. If you like to hike, you can walk to Kealakekua Bay (Captain Cook Monument) via this trail. The trailhead is very close to the Bed & Breakfast and you can walk to it in about 5 minutes. The trail is about 1.8 miles each way with an elevation change of 1400 feet with little shade. Bring LOTS of water, REALLY good shoes, long pants for the razor grass, and snorkel gear. Leave EARLY so you can head back by 10 am or stay ALL day. It's too hot to hike (heat stroke) in the middle of the day. Cars can't get here and boats must have permits.
Very romantic and high end! Definitely get reservations. Great place to stay too!
One of my favorites!!!!! Must eat here after a day at the beach! Open 7am to 3 pm.
