Things To Do
Parker Ranch, which includes about one-tenth of the Big Island making it one of the largest private ranches in the US, has its headquarters in Kamuela. They offer historic home tours as well as horseback riding excursions over the rolling ranchlands with stunning Big Island vistas.
Just a short drive from Kamuela is the Kohala Coast where you can enjoy white-sand beaches with crystal blue water great for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking. Head over to the Hamakua Coast to see the steep-walled Waipo Valley and the 442-foot Akaka Falls with many historic small towns along the way.
