On the 17th (Mon), tour the pleasant surroundings at Kahaluu Beach, then explore the striking landscape of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, then take an in-depth tour of Kona Coffee Living History Farm, and finally get interesting insight from Tours. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), steep yourself in history at Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, and then kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.
