The peaceful village of Puako is one of the Big Island's best-kept secrets
. Our Puako vacation rentals are surrounded by a wealth of natural history and coastal beauty and far from the distractions of bustling cities.
Where is Puako, HI?
A small village on Hawaii's western coast, Puako lies 31 miles north of the nearest large town, Kailua-Kona. A key part of the village's charm is its out-of-the-way location, lacking the crowds of more popular destinations. If you want a change of pace, golfing at Waikoloa Village is only 12 miles away
Things to Do in Puako
Despite its tiny size, Puako has a surprising wealth of shops and restaurants to explore at The Shops at Mauna Lani. However, the real allure of our Puako vacation rentals is the area's natural beauty. The region's sandy beaches are small but stunning, and with some of the lowest rainfall on the entire island, you can experience them year-round!
When you're not enjoying Hapuna Beach, explore rockier stretches of coastline and admire tide pools teeming with life, or venture into the waves for snorkeling and scuba diving at Puako Bay's coral reef.
No trip to Puako would be complete without a visit to the Puako Petroglyph Field. The intricate drawings carved into volcanic rock are a one-of-a-kind mixture of cultural and natural history!
It's difficult to imagine a better place for a low-key Hawaiian getaway. Our Puako vacation rentals offer peace, quiet, and some of the Big Island's most beautiful sights - browse our selection today!
