Many of Hawaii’s attractions can be found near to Puako, making it a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Two attractions that should top every visitor’s list is the fabulous Hapuna Beach State Park and the much-loved Hapuna Golf Course. Also, well worth the effort are the Francis H.I'i Brown North Golf Course and the Francis H.I'i Brown South Golf Course.
If the weather is good get into the great outdoors and appreciate the nearby green spaces. Enjoy listening to the birds, skim rocks in the shallows and catch some rays at nearby the Mauna Kea Beach in Kamuela.
One of the nicest ways to experience the great outdoors is to head for the greens at the area’s challenging courses like the Waikola Village Golf Club in Waikoloa.
After a day exploring the delights of Puako, rest up at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Hilton Waikoloa Village, the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa and the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Kamuela are just three of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
