Hawaii Island Luau

A grand celebration of food, entertainment and Polynesian culture, sunset is the perfect time for a traditional Hawaiian luau on Hawaii Island. Dine on kalua pig cooked in an imu (earth oven), haupia (coconut pudding) and poi (Hawaiian taro starch). Then settle down under the stars while you listen to live music and watch skilled performances of the hula telling stories of Hawaii Island. Some luau showcase dances from across Polynesia as well, like the frenetic Tahitian dance and the thrilling Samoan fire-knife dance.

You can find a variety of luau venues throughout Hawaii Island, mostly in the resort areas of Historic Kailua Village and Keauhou in Kona and along the Kohala Coast. No first-time visit to the island of Hawaii is complete without experiencing a Hawaiian luau.

There are hundreds of coffee farms in Kona as well as boutique coffee plantations in Kau, Puna and Hilo.
