When the first Hawaiians migrated north, South Point at the foot of Mauna Loa is likely the first land they saw from their double-hulled voyaging canoes. The Ka'u coastline is truly a majestic sight.
The Ka'u district, which is the southernmost area of the Big Island and the southernmost tip of the U.S, is still a real estate frontier. This is largest district in the State, but the least populated. At its northern boundary lies Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, undeniably volcano goddess Pele’s domain. Dominating the landscape along the coast are black sand beaches and mile after mile of stark lava landscape where forests of ohi'a and a variety of small farms and orchards are flourishing.
Home to several large rural subdivisions created by real estate developers in the mid-1900s as well as historic and culturally significant small villages, Ka'u embraces a very diverse population, many of whom are committed to "keeping country country." Recent proposed resort developments have met with strong community resistance, giving rise to active community groups dedicated to preserving the legacy of ancestral places and the old Hawaiian ways.
Located deep in the hills of Ka'u is Wood Valley, where in 1980 His Holiness the Dalai Lama consecrated and dedicated the Nechung Dorje Drayang Ling Immutable Island of Melodious Sound as a Buddhist temple and retreat. Farther south, along the highway, are the small villages of Pahala and Naalehu. Farther still are the subdivisions of Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, Hawaiian Ocean View Ranchos, Green Sand, Mark Twain and Discovery Harbor.
There are unique real estate opportunities in Ka'u for those who prefer life outside the mainstream. A variety of custom homes, off-grid homes, farms, ranch properties and ocean view lots are available in the Clark Realty Big Island listings.
