The Southern point of the Big Island, known as Ka’u, hosts some of the most notable features of the Big Island. A rugged section of the coastline, featuring both outcrops and stunning beaches, has a little bit of everything you could want in Hawaii. Famous attractions include the Southernmost point in the United States and the Mahana Green Sand Beach, one of only 3 (three!) green sand beaches in the world.
This picturesque section of the island comes after our day in the East side of the island centered around Puna and Mauna Kea. Ka’u can be reached by driving south from either Puna or Kailua-Kona.
