Hulihe’e palace and the bay’s waters are now famous for hosting the Hawai'ian International Billfish Tournament and the Kona Ironman World Championships. Head South over Kona Coffee Country, rich agricultural zones, beautiful beaches and coves including Kealakekua Bay - where you can look for the white obelisk of Captain James Cook Monument from the air. Learn about the ancient Hawaiian land subdivisions of ahupua’a, strategically shaped to include many different elevations ranging from mountaintop to shoreline.
