This magical tour starts with Original Hawaiian Chocolate sampling (closed on Sundays) and then some of the best fresh roasted Kona Coffee at historical Greenwell Farms, sure to give you a great kick-start to your day! Greenwell Farms is located on Scenic Mamalahoa Highway, where our famous 34 mile long "Kona Coffee Belt" is located. I'll take you on a short tour of the plantation before we head down to the Bay. The drive down to Kealakekua Bay is as curvy as it is spectacular, winding down through tropical jungle from 1500' elevation to sea level. We'll check out the visitor area to view the Bay and Captain Cook Monument before heading to the park for a deli-style picnic lunch. We'll go on a short hike to explore the tide pools and breathe in the Aloha Spirit of this *Sacred Place. The Place of Refuge (Pu'uhonua o Honaunau), next up, is quite a historical site. Where ancient lawbreakers could go to be exonerated by the Kahuna, and also during battle, warriors could go for a time-out in a designated safe space, and could pledge their allegiance to the victor of the battle. This place is the finest example of a Pu'uhonua in all of Hawaii. It exudes the peace and tranquility of its name to all who visit here! A historical treasure to explore! Our last stop is right next-door, Two-Step beach, famous for its' easy ocean entry and fabulous coral reefs. You'll spend some time in the warm ocean before heading back to Kona town. We will stop for Gelato on the way back. What to bring: Reef-safe Sunscreen, swimsuit, beach towel, snorkel gear. You can rent snorkel gear at Boss Frogs in Kona if you desire to snorkel.
