Your last stop is at one of the most significant sites in Hawaiian tradition, the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau Historical Park. For several centuries, this area was home to Royal Grounds, the primary religious and political center for this part of the island. Now a National Park, you can see the remains of the pu'uhonua (refuge place) which was surrounded by a wall 965 feet long. It served as a sanctuary for beaten warriors and those who broke the kapu (one of the ancient laws) could receive forgiveness from the priest and be allowed to go free.

After your visit to the park, your Kona Historic Coast Excursion; then will wrap up and your van will drive back to your tender pier in Kona, approximately 30 minutes away.

An enjoyable ride
     5/5  (Visited on January 2019)
Me and husband took this excursion in our last cruise. We needed an excursion where we could enjoy the Hawaiian coast and also learn more facts about the culture and history on the island. Our guide was the best and we tipped him very well, excellent and professional service. I loved the coffee we tasted in Kealakekua.

Our day in Kona was packed with lots of information on Hawaiian culture and fun facts such as that every year Kona hosts the Ironman: it was great to see parts of the route the athletes use after seeing it on television over the years! My favorite part of this excursion was the visit to a coffee farm, the taste of Kona's coffee is similar to the one I tried on Costa Rica last year. I highly recommend this excursion!

 I've been coming to Mr. Sancho's for over 15 years, It is one of my all-time favorite excursions. The coconut shrimp is to die for the garlic. Shrimp is to die for and mostly followed by as many beverages as I can toss back and then more shrimp lol
