Puako is a one of a kind area to Purchase a Home or Vacation Rental.

This oceanfront community is nestled between the Mauna Kea Beach Resort and the Mauna Lani Resort on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. With a rich prehistoric past marked by its famous petroglyph fields, Puako offers tranquility and privacy, with sunny, balmy days and clear, starry nights. The reef and water along Puako are pristine and offer the opportunity to swim, dive and snorkel with sea turtles and other amazing ocean creatures.

The translation of Puako is literally Puako”sugar cane blossom”- pua (blossom) and ko (sugar cane). The area was settled by the Hawaiians, who established several small fishing villages along the coast. Puako has a rich history of petroglyph art. There are approximately 3,000 petroglyphs scattered throughout the Puako Archaelogical Fields. These pictures etched into the dark lava rock that permeate the Kohala and Kona Coasts give a fascinating glimpse into ancient Hawaii. Access to the Puako Petroglyph Park is through the adjacent Mauna Lani Resort. Back in the old days you could access them along the coast!

The Puako Marine Preseve is a protected enviroment for endangered sea life that includes sea turtles, monk seals, exotic corals, and many varieties of colorful reef fish. The Preserve provides for an exceptional diving experience. The incredible clarity of the water is due to a substantial infusion of fresh water and strong currents. The green sea turtles that inhabit the Preserve have been tracked by satellite all the way to the French Frigate shoals, some 1500 miles away, where they lay their eggs. They are a protected species and should not be bothered or disturbed in any way. Dolphins play and whales breach the surface in the deeper water beyond the reef shelf. Puako is a breeding area for humpback whales on their annual migration to Hawaii from their Alaska feeding grounds. The young whales are quite active and safe from predators and mankind. Puako is a safe haven for all!

Just North of Puako Is Hapuna Beach State Park, home to the best white sand beach on the Big Island! The water at Hapuna is infused with fresh water from Mauna Kea Volcano, and it is clear and refreshing with seasonal surfing during the winter months. This is a very easy beach to get to and is great for kids! You can also find these beaches close by: Spencer Beach Park, Mauna Kea Beach, and Anaeho’omalu at the Waikoloa Beach Resort.

There are also 7 championship golf courses in the area at Waikoloa Village, Mauna Kea Resort, Mauna Lani Resort, The Waikoloa Beach Resort and at the Waimea Country Club in Kamuela.

Deep sea fishing, whale watching, diving, snorkeling, and boogie boarding at Paniau at the end of Puako Beach Drive are some of the fun things to do during your visit or relocation to Puako!

We hope we have provided you with a glimpse into our little community and look forward to sharing our experiences with you, so stay tuned for more!
