Beach Resort Community: Hualalai

    Few beach communities offer year-round access, guaranteed sunshine, seclusion, and the ease and security of being located within the United States. Hualalai is one of them. Located on 865 acres along the Kohala Coast, the Big Island of Hawaii’s driest stretch of coastline, the community benefits from more than a mile of rugged oceanfront that receives an average of 340 days of sunshine per year and provides a stunning backdrop for Hualalai’s golf courses, designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jack Nicklaus. The community—which has about 300 homes and 72 available homesites (prices range from $1.7 million to $29 million), as well as a Four Seasons resort—is not as private as some other beach properties. However, the revenue the community receives from hotel guests (the Hualalai resort has been one of Four Seasons’ most popular properties for several years) helps keep the development financially sound and supports such amenities as a general store, seven restaurants, and a spa and fitness center.
