Kawaihae is a port community on the west side of the island of Hawaiʻi which includes a fuel depot, shipping
terminal and military landing site. Outside of the man-made breakwall of the harbor is a popular surf spot, the
Pua Kailima o Kawaihae Cultural Surf Park. The small town of Kawaihae 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 a new
Harbor section and further south is the Puʻukoholā Heiau National Historic Site built by King Kamehameha I in
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.
