Rare opportunity to own a 485-acre parcel of subdividable land in historic North Kohala. Wide ocean views sweep from the cliffs of Pololu Valley across the north shore of the Big Island towards the towns of Kapaau and Hawi.

This could be a legacy purchase for a buyer who wishes to preserve and enhance the rich tradition of these historic lands.

Nestled between the Waipunalau Gulch to the west and the Waikama Gulch to the east; bounded by the Kohala Ditch on a portion of the lower (north) side and the Kohala Forest Preserve on the upper (south) side, this parcel embodies the agricultural heritage of Kohala. Currently used for cattle grazing on its eastern portion, its deep fertile soil would support many types of agriculture.

The middle section was previously licensed to a small scale sustainable farm. There are unpermitted farm structures on the land, including a solar/photovoltaic system.

With two existing lots of record, consolidation and resubdivision would be possible immediately if it better suited the purchaser's vision. The Ag-20 zoning could in principle allow for additional lots to be subdivided in time.

One bordering gulch was previously the site of a zip-line; Kohala Ditch Adventures launches at a section adjacent to this parcel. The land has potential for eco-tourism or agricultural tourism.

Water features include a pond, spring and seasonal streams and waterfalls in the gulches. Rainfall in this area is adequate for catchment water for agriculture and dwellings. A catchment pond was constructed to support the cattle ranching operation along with substantial fencing of pastures.

The amenities of Kapaau and Hawi-restaurants, galleries, shops, Kamehameha Park for recreation, weekly farmers market— are a few miles from the property. The famous beaches of the Kohala Coast are a 40-minute drive. Hawi's Upolu airport can accommodate a small jet; Kona airport is 90 minutes away.

North Kohala

North Kohala is the northernmost district of the Big Island. Here, volcano goddess Pele’s creation has geologically matured and weathered over millennia from rugged lava into lush, rolling agricultural lands and wild isolated valleys. North Kohala is the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great and as such is a landmark of Hawaiian history. This area serves as both a center of ranching and agricultural production and as a bedroom community to the high-end resorts of the adjacent South Kohala Coast.

The small towns of Hawi and Kapa'au are home to a community of artists, business professionals, paniolo (cowboys), kama'aina families and retirees. Their colorful main street is lined with shops, galleries, eateries and markets that beckon the curious to stop and "talk story." Overall, the climate is benign, but powerful winds and storms can blow through.

Traveling south along the coast, residents of communities like Kohala Ranch and Kohala Estates, poised high above the coast, enjoy sweeping views of the ocean and neighboring Maui, seasonal whale-watching and breathtaking sunsets. Further down along the shore, property designated as Hawaiian Homelands runs into the Kawaihae area. Once a thriving center of Kamehameha’s kingdom, Kawaihae is still home to the ancient Hawaiian temple of Pu'ukohola.

With its rich history, artistic energy and vast open spaces, North Kohala is known to lure those seeking a sense of place and peace on Hawaii’s Big Island.
