beach on kohala

our area

Maile sails out of Kawaihae Harbor on the Kohala Coast, the dry and sunny side of the island. Carved into lava fields, and surrounded by coral reefs, the legendary resorts along this coast are a treat to stay in any time of the year. To experience the island's native ohia-fern rain forest, head for a couple of nights to Volcano, the little town just outside of Volcano National Park. This coffee growing region south of Kona has its own unique feel and flavor, with Kealakekua Bay, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau and the south Kona Macadamia Nut farm.
