The first thing you'll want to do on the Kohala Coast is go to the beach—and that beach should be Hapuna Bay. One of the few white sand beaches on the island, it is enclosed by trees on one side and the Pacific on the other. The waters are calm enough for swimming and on a clear day you can see Maui in the distance. After Hapuna, also visit A'naehoomalu Bay (nickname: A-Bay), which includes an impressive stretch of beach behind the Marriott hotel.
