Activities/Attractions: Kau is the largest district on the Big Island and is also the district that contains most of the Hawaii Volcano National Park. Kau has varied climate due to it's size. From the town of Volcano, at 3000 ft above sea level where it is cool and crisp and most everyone has fireplaces to warm the homes at night, to South Point, the southern most point in the US where rain falls only 35 days out of the year, Kau has seasons and weather for everyone.
Several fine black sand beach locations can be found along the south coast of the Big Island. Two such beach spots can be found at Punalu'u on the south coast and Kehena east of Volcano National Park. At the very southern tip is another unusual beach which is khaki green in colour. Green Sand Beach is carved into an extinct cinder cone and requires either 4WD access to within a mile of the beach or a 3 mile trek along the dirt road before descending a steep trail to the beach. While at the B&B:

"We spent one night at this homey B&B set on a couple acres near VNP. It is a peaceful setting with many trees & plants. The retired couple who run it are artists and very accommodating. The breakfast was awesome: sausage, eggs & lots of fresh fruit. Two thumbs up!"
