Kawaihae Harbor and Kohala Coast Resorts
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
After flying northward from Kona along the Kohala coast of Hawaii's Big Island, the aircraft began to turn east over the port of Kawaihae. Although our position in relation to the bright morning sun made it difficult to get an optimal photo, the view was spectacular. In the bottom left of this photo is the harbor at the port of Kawaihae. Up the coast you can see the northernmost of the Kohala coast resorts, including the Mauna Kea, the Mauna Lani, and the Hapuna Beach Prince hotels, and Hapuna Beach State Park. A minute later, we flew right over my house!
