About Ka'u Hawai'i
Ka'u (ka-oo) meaning: To be mine...
and it really can be yours.
Ka'u is said to be the landing site of the first Polynesian settlers. Covering over 80 miles of coast south of Kailua-Kona and due west of Hawai'i Volcano's National Park, Ka'u is Hawaii's largest district in terms of land area. Ka'u is filled with history one can see in the many petroglyphs from Miloli'i to Volcano. In the 1960's astronauts trained for lunar missions on the lava fields of Mauna Loa and in the 1860's Mark Twain spent time in Waiohinu, right here in Ka'u, and planted a Monkey Pod tree. (In 1957 the original tree was blown down and a new tree grew from it's sprouts that still stands today). Ka'u today is home to some of nature's most precious gifts. One can almost always see an endangered sea turtle at Punalu'u Black Sand Beach or one can find a real olivine Gem by taking a hike to Green Sands Beach off South Point. For those of us who know better, we have already found our green Gem ... called Ka'u.
The town of Na'alehu is the center of Ka'u. It is a growing area with golf course communities, the world famous Punalu'u Bakery, dining at the Shaka and the Han Hou, shopping, an outdoor Market selling local fruits and veggies every Wednesday and Saturday, an old theater house and yet Na'alehu still maintains the old time charm of yesteryear that is Hawai'i.
Location: Between mile markers 63 & 65
This is the place Mark Twain planted that famous Monkey Pod tree. Although the property, once called Mark Twain Square, is owned privately you can still feel the history when you stop to look at the tree grown from a sprout of the original destroyed in 1957.
Location: Between mile marker 65 & 66 ... next to Waiohinu Park
