Kealakekua Bay from Manini Beach

Kealakekua Bay from Manini Beach

Kealakekua Bay was the seat of Hawaiian royalty for some time. Several ali’i (chiefs) ruled from this very spot, included King Kamehameha the Great, who unified the Hawaiian islands into a single kingdom.

Kealakekua Bay is also where Captain Cook landed, dined, met with chiefs, played, repaired, left, returned, and died.

Additionally, it is now a marine life conservation district and home to several spinner dolphins pods.

Needless to say, it has a lot going for it, apart from being a spectacular sight.
