Paradise Meadows

An authentic, diversified family farm. We specialize in hand-crafted, artisanal, 100% Hawaiian products including macadamia nuts that are dehydrated rather than roasted so they taste more like the fresh macadamia nut right out of the shell, unique varieties of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, award-winning 100% Ka'u coffee, and several varieties of raw, natural Hawaiian honey. On a visit to the farm you can meet the farmers, take a brief free tour (including our Aquaponic greenhouse), learn about honey, coffee and macadamia nut production, meet our 5 parrots, and sample all of our delicious products.

On our drive to South Point (the southernmost point of Hawaii), we were drawn in by signs advertising coffee and macadamia nut tasting at Paradise Meadows. Interested in purchasing coffee to take back home, we we pulled into the beautiful property and were suddenly blanketed in a warm welcome by the friendly hosts at the farm. We were given a variety of complimentary samples from chocolate covered macademia nuts, coffee, and fruit, as exotic Muscovy ducks waddled about between our legs. The host gave us a tour of her nursery, fruit orchard (mangoes, papaya, banana, oranges, tangerines, lemon and lime), aquaponics system and coffee plantation and after purchasing our coffee we were also given a gift to take home. Thank you for the hospitality! Highly recommend!

Reviewed By max219 - Montreal, Canada

Easy hike for all ages (4km or 1h one way), beautiful place with amazingly intriguing green sand ! Swimming was also great with some awesome waves. Some people choose to use shuttle services, but I find the hike is 10 times worth it ! Highly recommended.

Punalu'u Bake Shop

Reviewed By Hal72 - Olympia, Washington

Conveniently located about midway between Kona and the Volcano one "needs" to stop here. The malasadas are a required purchase; some to eat right then and a half dozen or so for "later". They have other great baked goods, sandwiches, salads, ice cream, coffee so there is lots to choose from. They have very nice grounds with covered places to eat.

Ka Lae Light

Reviewed By echo8kilo

Beautiful site to take in the southern most point in US. Would have liked to have dared to cliff dive (jump/flop actually) however numerous fisherman on site. Water crystal clear and could see bottom even from top of cliffs. Drive is lengthy.

Whittington Beach Park

Reviewed By Jim L

Not as dramatic as Black Sands down the road, but a lot less busy. Can’t say about the swimming, but it makes a nice rest stop or a place for a picnic (perhaps with some Malasadas from Punalu’u Bake Shop.) The coastline view is dramatic, and the park is peaceful and relaxing.

We stopped by on a whim and were glad we stopped. Brenda was working and was very helpful and excited to answer all our questions. We had generous samples and were shown around the farm. Brenda took time to show us all kinds of fruits and how they were produced. We were able to buy all the food/coffee we sampled!
