Kawaihae is a port community on the
west side of the island of Hawaiʻi and
Kawaihae Harbor includes a fuel
depot, shipping terminal and military
landing site. Outside of the man-made
breakwall of the harbor is a popular
surf spot and the Pua Kailima o
Kawaihae Cultural Surf Park. The
small town features a handful of
restaurants and art galleries. To the
north of the harbor is the Kawaihae
Canoe Club and a small boat ramp. To
the south is Puʻukoholā Heiau national
historic site, built by King
Kamehameha I in 1791.

Kawaihae served as the seat of the
Kingdom of Hawaii island during the
reign of King Alapaʻinuiakauaua. In the
late 1700s, Kawaihae's naturally
sheltered bay was considered one of
the more suitable commercial harbor
for western ships on the Big Island. Its
harbor and proximity to the fertile
uplands of Waimea ensured its status
as an important stopover for many
early European voyagers and
merchantmen needing to make repairs
and resupply their ships during the
early period of the Kingdom of Hawaii.

It is the home of Kawaihae Canoe
Club. It also served as the launching
point for the film Waterworld with Kevin
Costner. The artificial reef or floating
island was just off the coast with
headquarters for the movie at the
harbor.
