As the birthplace of King Kamehameha, North Kohala is steeped in Hawaiian heritage, from the ancient heiaus Hawaiian temples at Pu’ukohola and Moʻokini to the statue of the beloved King that watches over the city of Kapaʻau. King Kamehameha’s warriors trained and fought over the mountains and valleys of Kohala with neighboring Maui, the same lands that would foster great sugar plantations and world-renowned cattle ranches centuries later. Kings, queens, Hawaiian warriors, sugar barons and cowboys have all left their mark on North Kohala and the pride and majesty of their spirit remains the central character of this land.
North Kohala is a land of contrasts as rich as its living Hawaiian heritage. Rugged, arid coastlines dotted with ancient temples gradually evolve to verdant grasslands and tropical rainforests. Horseback riding, ziplines over the canopy, all-terrain vehicle rides and Flumin da Ditch are popular tourism activities and there are many hiking trails across the pristine hills and countryside a trek down to the gorgeous black sand beaches of Pololu Valley is a must!
