Golf Digest rates the Mauna Kea Beach Golf Course on the Kohala Coast among the world's best. Located at the Mauna Kea Resort, the Hapuna Golf Course was named "Most Environmentally Sensitive" in the state by the United States Golf Association. Waikoloa exhibits three beautiful courses: The Waikoloa Village Golf Course, the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course and the King's Course.
History is preserved at archaeological sites along the Kohala Coast. The fish ponds of Ka'upulehu, Anaeho'omalu and Mauna Lani reflect the ancient Hawaiian practice of aquaculture.
