Located on the Kona coast of the Big Island, Kealakekua Bay is one of the most historically significant areas on the entire island. There’s a monument to Captain Cook (a white obelisk seen in the far distance on the right), marking the spot where he died in 1779. Amazing how some people manage to leave things behind, even centuries later.The place is also great for snorkeling and kayaking, though it’s peaceful enough for a brief hike and a quiet place to eat lunch. Regardless, it’s a place that every traveler should visit.
