Kahua Ranch Sunset Dinner

This tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Big Island Tours page for other available options.

Nestled in the Kohala Mountains at 3,200 feet above sea level, the historic Kahua Ranch invites you to a memorable sunset dinner under the stars. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a family member by an open campfire and learn about the history of this 8,500 acre working cattle ranch. Then you're off to a mouthwatering smokehouse BBQ beef & chicken dinner buffet with all the fixin's, including macadamia nut pie for dessert. There's also an open bar with Kona Brewery beer, red and white wine and a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

After dinner, participate in several traditional paniolo (cowboy) activities: learn how to rope, pitch horseshoes, line dance, sing along while roasting marshmallows by the campfire, and brand a shingle to take home with you.
