Big Island Hawaii- Nature's Beauty
Hawaii’s Big Island offers experiences found in no other place on earth. A variety of climatic zones, from seasonal snow-capped mountains to black sand beaches, stretch across its vast topography creating rich pockets of adventure for visitors to explore. The entire island is beautiful and opened to picturesque vistas. We stayed at a lovely hotel on the Kona side on Kohala Coast called Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
South Kona pictured in the photographs shown here is shrouded in history. Kealakekua Bay is the spot where the the famous Captain Cook met his fate. There is a small monument commemorating the event but it is hard to spot across the bay. Why did he come onto the island at this spot? Who killed him?
