South Kona is an excellent example of the pleasant, small town atmosphere that pervades the Big Island of Hawaii. In traditional terms, South Kona extends from Puuhonua o Honaunau to Manuka, perched between the precipitous slopes of Mauna Loa and the sapphire waters of the Pacific Ocean. South Koa is home to a fascinating historic site – the Place of Refuge. In the kingdom of ancient Hawaii, those convicted of a capital crime could take refuge in this haven, which is replete with natural beauty, temples, and graveyards.
South Kona is noted for its rural setting, which combines modern creature comforts with an aura diametrically opposed to larger island cities such as Honolulu or even Hilo. Roadside stands, fruit shops, arts and crafts stores, farms, plantations, galleries, and restaurants dot the countryside as the landscape basks in the unrelenting pleasant sun of the Aloha State. Some notable attractions in and around South Kona include Saint Benedict’s Painted Church, Hookena Beach Park, Kealia Ranch, Milolii, Honomalino Beach, and Manuka State Wayside Park.
