Tara Cottage is located on 15 acres of seclusion in beautiful Kona coffee country, overlooking Kealakekua Bay and the South Kona coastline.
The District of South Kona hugs the southwestern coastal slopes of the huge 13,679 ft. Mauna Loa volcano. This region's one main road, Hwy. 11, passes through an upslope rather than coastal area dotted with small villages. It is a rural agricultural region of undulating green hillsides, colorful tropical foliage and panoramic ocean views, renowned for its Kona coffee fields, macadamia nut orchards and organic fruit and vegetable farms. Its most popular coastal region is lovely Kealakekua Bay, famous for its unparalleled fine snorkeling, kayaking and scuba diving, and as the site of the demise of explorer Captain James Cook. Another remarkable coastal area is beautiful Pu'uhonua 'O Honaunau National Park, an ancient Hawaiian Place of Refuge. Both these destinations are less than 10 minutes from Tara. Two lovely beaches are within a 15 minute drive.
Other Activities: Kona coffee tasting at many farms nearby, boating, shopping, kayaking, para sailing, wildlife viewing.
