In view from the guesthouse and just a few minutes away, you can explore Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park or Kealakekua Bay.
For a better view of Mauna Loa and the Kilauea Crater, most of our guests visit Volcanoes National Park as a day trip and occasionally luck out with a spectacular volcanic event during their stay.
Cultural Happenings and Events:
Alternative Hawaii – a great source for local gallery openings, farm festivals, dance, concerts and other eco-cultural happenings.
The Hawaii Visitors Bureau – a friendly searchable calendar to plan your vacation.
KonaWeb – Great site listing eclectic events like food festivals, theatre performances, slack key concerts and the local rodeos.
Experience coffee from many of Kona’s best farms such as Kena Coffee.
For our guests interested in botany, we highly recommend visiting the Amy Greenwell Ethno-botanical Garden right here in Captain Cook. This garden offers the opportunity to examine many rare native plants as well as many of those introduced by the Polynesians when they settled Hawaii.
