Kealekekua and Captain Cook,in the the southern reaches of Kona, are true pieces of Hawaii, genuine unspoiled outposts that have changed little, in many ways, in 500 years or more. The Aloha Theatre,above, is restored to its original condition from 80 years ago. It is this genuine quality of olde school Hawaii that makes this area, Kealekekua, Captain Cook and Honaunau absolutely priceless biospheres of unparralled beauty and character.
