The Kohala Coast is located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. They call it The Big Island to avoid the confusion between the State of Hawaii and the Island of Hawaii. Kohala is split into two areas, North Kohala and South Kohala, with North Kohala covering the more rural northern end of the island, containing the historic small towns of Hawi, Kapa’au, and the Kohala Ranch communities.

South Kohala covers the major, world class resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resorts', the small town of Waikoloa Village, located 6 miles inland from the resorts and Waimea, the beautiful town in the interior Waimea Valley.
