Waialea "Beach 69", Big Island

Puako Real Estate

Located “off the beaten path” between Mauna Lani Resort and Mauna Kea Resort, the small and secluded oceanfront community of Puako had garnered only little real estate attention up until the past decade or so.


Today, Puako real estate is in high demand and is considered one of the most unique luxury beachfront communities on the Big Island. There are essentially two sides to Puako (literally) separated by the community’s only road that stretches for 3-miles along the coast. On one side it’s beachfront, and on the other side, it’s not. As such, there are significant price ranges and diverse property types to be found here.

Puako Petroglyph Park

While petroglyphs (ancient carvings into lava rock) can be found throughout Hawaii, the largest concentrations are located south of Puako. This archeological preserve features more than 3,000 petroglyphs dating back to 1200 AD. Open to the public, this archeological park is a fascinating glimpse into the past and a testament to the historical and cultural significance of the area.

Real Estate in Puako

Puako real estate is limited to just over 150 properties and is free from covenants and restrictions that you would typically be subject to within the surrounding resort areas. It is hard to believe an area like this still exists in Hawaii!


Puako is truly a special community with a low-key feel and vintage Hawaii charm – yet it is just a few minutes away from world-class resort amenities at nearby Kohala Coast resorts.
