Papa bay Big Island Hawaii

Pāpā Bay

Near the ancient Hawaiian fishing village of Miloliʻi, in the far south of Kona District, is the community of Pāpā Bay Big Island. This is a remote area, best suited for vacationers looking to “get away from it all.” If you choose one of our beautiful Pāpā Bay vacation rentals, you’ll be assured of peace, quiet, and a retreat from the bustle of city life!

Since it’s so remote, this area is suitable for either those who are looking to relax seaside and not go anywhere, or folks who enjoy driving to their destinations. Pāpā Bay, Hawaii is more than an hour’s drive south of Kailua-Kona, and there are no services or stores in this area. It’s a great location for exploring the remote beaches and coastline of south Kona, as well as visiting Ka Lae (South Point), the spectacular peninsula where Hawaiʻi Island meets the deep blue sea. It’s also about an hour’s drive from Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, where you can marvel at the nearness of the world’s most active volcano and explore the unique young landscape.

Pāpā Bay is a great spot for fishing, but as it doesn’t have much of a sandy beach, is not great swimming for most visitors. Nearby Honomalino Beach is better, as is Hoʻokena, a little to the north. Continuing on north, you’ll find many fragrant coffee farms and roadside fruit stands as you head towards the small towns of the south Kona uplands. Further north, enjoy the many beaches and attractions of the Kona-Kohala Coast.
