Along the Kohala Coast, Puako is a 16 acre resort area that transcends time.
It is home to some exclusive beachfront estates and several old beach houses dot the shoreline still as well.
I literally makes you feel like you have traveled far off into another place.
Famous for a resting place for the Humpback whales to migrate as far as our Island and is home of several scientific researchers who record and monitor these magnificent creatures. Rich in history
the Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve features more than a thousand petroglyphs, or kii pohaku, lava rock carvings etched into stone centuries ago by Native Hawaiians. Although the true meanings of the petroglyphs are unknown, it is generally thought these carvings are records of births and other significant events in the lives of the people who lived on Hawaii Island long ago.
Just a short walk from the Fairmont Orchid Hawaii, Holoholokai Beach (a well manicured beach-park with facilities) and the Mauna Lani Resort, you can see the carvings of human forms, canoes, turtles and others in the captivating petroglyphs fields of Puako. Take the kids on a petroglyph hunt and ask them what they think these ancient symbols could mean. Turtles bask in the sun on the shore everywhere you look.
