More about this activity


best kona luauLocation

This Kona luau is located adjacent to the Ahu’ena Heiau, traditionally known as Kamakahonu, and is often called the most historic site in Hawaii. Kamakahonu was home to Kamehameha the Great in his final years, and it was here where he eventually died. Kamakahonu was also the location of the great feast to celebrate the overthrow of the kapu system, a turning point in Hawaiian history. Additionally, Kamakahonu Bay was where the first missionaries came ashore in 1820. A portion of all Island Breeze luau ticket sales goes to help preserve this historic site. 

Activities and Show

Enjoy a warm welcome and an array of activities upon arrival at our favorite Big Island Luau, such as meeting the performers and learning hula. After getting settled witness the imu ceremony, where the roasted pig is uncovered from the underground stone oven. Shortly after, watch as the royal court arrives by outrigger canoe. Dinner is complimented by live music, followed by an outstanding Polynesian show. 

Luau Dinner
