Perhaps you’ve spent a vacation or two on the spectacular island of Hawaii, and now you’re interested in moving to the Big Island. There is truly nowhere else on earth that compares to the Big Island, but considering its diversity, just where is it you want to settle? As luxury real estate professionals, we have some information that may help make your decision easier.
Since Hawaii is known for beautiful beaches, we’ll start with Kukio. North of Kekaha Kai, Kukio offers amazing natural parks, pristine golf courses, and is located close to the Kona International Airport. If you intend to spend substantial time on the beach, you’ll find Makalawena Beach a great place to relax, dive, or snorkel. Most of the island’s luxury resorts and hotels are located in the Kukio area!

Kailua Village is the ideal spot to make home if you’re passionate about Hawaiian culture, and it offers a rich nightlife after sunset in the form of traditional music. King Kamehameha’s Ahuena Heiau temple is here, along with Hulihee Palace, and some of the most amazing local cuisine you’ll find on the island. Local flavor at its best!
Is a laid back lifestyle and rolling green hills your idea of luxury living? Waimea is the place you’ll want to be with its rural local charm and atmosphere of small town living. With an arts theatre and gorgeous beaches located just 30 minutes away, Waimea lets you enjoy a slower pace and serenity without being too far away from the city.
Hilo offers city living at its best, without the touristy feel some homeowners prefer to avoid. The biggest town on Hawaii Island, Hilo offers no shortage of career opportunities and is a coastal city boasting low crime rates and a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere. Lots to do for folks who like staying busy but prefer a small town feel.
These are just a few examples of what you’ll find on the Big Island. From Hawi and Kohala Ranch to resort living at Kohanaiki or Mauna Kea, your dream luxury home is waiting!
