Embark on a journey of discovery as you explore the historic city of Kona and the sun-drenched Gold Coast. Travel past ancient temples, fields of coffee and macadamia nuts, and breathtaking coastal scenery. The big island is world-famous for its rich blends of Kona coffee, and a stop at a Kona coffee house gives you a chance to sip the flavorful brew while browsing through the shop and exhibits.


Enjoy views of beautiful Kealakekua Bay, and make a stop at St. Benedict's historic painted church, noted for its colorful murals depicting biblical scenes. You’ll discover old Hawaii at Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. This place of refuge has served as a political and religious sanctuary for the breakers of sacred law, or kapu, since ancient times. Here you will find a temple that once housed the bones of deceased chiefs, and wooden images of the fierce gods that protect it.
