The Big Island of Hawai'i, which is bigger than all of the other islands combined, still has the true authentic feel of old Hawaii. Unlike the other more developed islands in the chain, the Big Island feels primordial and wild. This tropical sanctuary is for health-conscious travelers, adventure loving enthusiasts, and romantic traveling, and cultural studies Hawai'i is a favorite. Activities like hiking, kayaking, deep sea fishing, diving and snorkeling play a big part in local life, which is primarily lived outdoors in the warm but trade wind-cooled breezes. If you're looking for a low-key, outdoorsy holiday in Hawaii, the Big Island is the tropical sanctuary you seek.
Many of you may know us from our 17 years of having had our office located in Puako. Pattie Freeman, Realtor also known as "Puako Pattie" has lived and worked in the area since she moved to the Big Island in the late eighties.
The translation of Puako is literally "sugar cane blossom" Pua (blossom) and Ko (sugar cane). The area was settled by the Hawaiians, who established several small fishing villages along the coast. Puako has a rich history of petroglyph art. Access to the uako Petroglyphs is easy through the Mauna Lani Resort near Paniau Beach Park at the end of Puako Beach Drive.
The Polynesians first spoke of a mystical island paradise to the North called Hawaii or "Hawa'i." When they finally set foot on Hawaii's Big Island around A.D. 600, they discovered an enormous, lush land mass, with thousand-foot waterfalls, thriving reefs, fertile valleys, and volcanoes exploding with red lava.
