Our seventh day on the Big Island of Hawaii and it’s the last day of my 40s. This was the day we booked our official Hawaiian lu’au so we didn’t want to stray too far away from Kona and the west side of the island.
We start our day by heading down to Miloli’i, which is billed as “The Last Fishing Village in Hawai’i Nei.” The neighboring village of Ho’opuloa was buried by a lava flow from Mauna Loa in 1926 but this village survived. Miloli’i Beach Park wasn’t very busy and offered some beautiful coastline so we got DroneOCan out for a look from up above.
We then check out Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau National Historic Park and learn more Hawaiian history before heading back to Kailua Kona to attend the Island Breeze Luau at the Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel. So long 40s! Here’s to all the adventures yet to come.
