    Indulge in generous samplings of Hawaii’s most iconic products on a culinary adventure that will begin at the Mountain Thunder coffee plantation. After one sip of full-bodied coffee from beans grown and roasted there, you will understand why Kona coffee is so desirable. Browsing the wide array of merchandise offered at Waimea Midweek Farmers Market will provide an even deeper appreciation of Hawaii’s fertile volcanic soil. Every imaginable local product from purple sweet potatoes to chocolate butters to cold-pressed juices is available, and many of them will be offered to sample. Similarly, at the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company, you will have the opportunity to taste Hawaii’s signature macadamia nuts on their own or folded into biscotti and cookies. Although Hawaii isn’t as well known for its rum, it probably should be, as you will discover by sampling a refreshing cocktail at the Kuleana Rum Works. The rum is made on the island from 40 varieties of heirloom sugarcane.

    Hike down to a black-sand beach of volcanic origin and discover the lasting influence of King Kamehameha, who was born nearby in the stunningly beautiful countryside.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at a statue of King Kamehameha I, which stands near the site where he was born. Kamehameha is best known for uniting the Hawaiian Islands into one kingdom in 1810, and the statue recognizes his accomplishments.


    A wonderfully scenic drive will then bring you to the Pololu Valley, a verdant landscape that is still only sparsely populated despite being first settled in the 15th century. You will have the option of admiring the spectacular coastal scenery from an elevated lookout or hiking down to the black-sand beach.


    Made from lava that cooled instantly and shattered when it flowed into the sea, the black sand retains more heat than white sand. Consequently, sea turtles favor it for their nests.


    You will enjoy another perspective of the Big Island’s rocky northern shore at Keokea Park, where you will stop for lunch. The coast isn’t protected by offshore reefs, so the surf here is strong, rough and wonderfully picturesque. It is an ideal setting for photos.


    A bit inland, you will find Hawi, a free-spirited community with plenty of eclectic shops, including the Kohala Coffee Mill. You will stop there for a cup of coffee made from Kona beans and a scoop of local, hand-crafted ice cream.

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’ll will find a temple that once housed the bones of deceased chiefs, and wooden images of the fierce gods that protect it.


    Hop aboard a powered catamaran for a cruise through Kona’s history, when Hawaiian kings ruled these tropical isles. Your guide will provide the narration as you pass by noteworthy sites including temples, battlefields and an unusual recreation site, the holua or slide. Hawaiian royalty loved sports of all kinds, the most incredible of which they called sledding – down grass covered slopes and stone ramps.


    Keep your eyes open for the resident spinner dolphins that frequent these waters year-round, and the humpback whales that visit from December through April. Enjoy a deli style sandwich, fresh fruit, a gluten free/vegan pasta salad, chips and cookies.
