The Kohala region is an amazing place to explore and is located on the rugged western shoreline of the Big Island. The Kohala Coast is home to many posh oceanfront resorts and immaculate golf courses. North Kohala is centered around the former sugar plantation towns of Kapaau and Hawi. These small towns near the northern tip of the island still retain their picturesque old town charm. Nearby to Kapaau is the Birthplace of King Kamehameha I as well as Mookini Heiau, one of Hawaii’s largest and oldest heiau (sacred places of worship).
King Kamehameha I is one of the most celebrated figures in Hawaiian history. A great warrior, diplomat, and leader, he united the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom in 1810 after years of conflict. Kamehameha was destined for greatness, and his birth was believed to fulfill a prophecy from ancient Hawaiian legend which said that light in the sky with feathers like a bird would signal the birth of a great chief. Historians believe Kamehameha was born in 1758, in Kapaau, the same year Halley’s Comet passed over Hawaii. Kamehameha was trained as a warrior and demonstrated his legendary power when he flipped the Naha Stone, which weighed between 2.5 and 3.5 tons according to legend. You can still see the Naha Stone today.
