The Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii has world premier luxury resorts such as The Ritz Carlton, The Four Seasons, and the Regent International Resort Hotel, adorning the 12-mile coastline. It is the pride of the Big Island and the leader of visitor industry growth for the State of Hawaii.
Amongst dramatic lava rock fields, a result of eruptions from Hualalai volcano centuries ago, are world-class accommodations, fine dining and Hawaii’s Champion signature golf courses. With less than nine inches of rainfall annually, you can soak in the sun and relax at Hapuna Beach State Park, one of Hawaii Island’s largest white sand beaches, indulge in a taste of Hawaii Regional Cuisine or pamper yourself at some of Hawaii’s best spas. You’ll discover cultural treasures on the Kohala Coast too, from Anaehoomalu Petroglyphs field in the Waikoloa Resort to those of the Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve as well as the remarkable Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, the largest restored heiau in Hawaii.
These stunning photographs portraying the rich tapestry of nature found along the Kohala Sun Coast are the work of local photographer Kaualani. His signature work frames for us the abounding exquisite beauty and spirit of nature surrounding us.
