This panoramic picture at Makuhona harbor was taken in the afternoon on the way back from Polou Valley to Kailua-Kona. I was actually trying to find the Makuhona Beach Park, but missed. However, this little harbour still made for a relaxing place to rest a while, listen to the waves crashing on the shoreline and watch people diving and snorkeling off the coast.

Panorama of Mahukona Harbor, close to Mahukona Beach Park near to the northern end of Hawaii Island. The coastline off Mahukola is popular with divers and provides excellent and rewarding shore diving and snorkeling potential. Many divers follow the anchor chain of a sunken ship out form the shore. The area is a protected marine sanctuary and marine life is abundant. There are few amenities here (no hotels) but there is a hot shower, which is naturally heated by the sun as the water pipe runs over the lava. There are a couple of quiet sandy beaches at Mahukona Beach Park just south of here where there are also numerous old Hawaiian ruins.
