North Kohala District - Big Island of Hawaii
The North Kohala district sits on the very northern end of the Big Island. It is bordered by South Kohala on one side, and by the deep finger valleys which separate North Kohala from Hamakua and Waipio Valley.
North Kohala District Overview
Spectacular steep cliffs face the ocean along the entire length of the North Kohala Coast with the region receiving strong trade winds and good rain throughout most of the year.
The North Kohala district consists of lush subtropical rain forests and green pastures and fields. Temperatures on the windward side of North Kohala are 5 to 10 degrees cooler, depending on elevation, than they are in Kona. In the coastal areas there are an average of 280 days of clear weather annually, with temperatures ranging from the 80s in the day to the low 60s at night.
