Kona Internation Airport to Hale Pohaku Driving Directions
Take the Airport Exit Road until you reach the traffic light at Highway 19 (aka the Queen Kaahumanu Highway).
Turn right onto Highway 19; continue for 3.1 miles.
Turn left onto Hina Lani Street; continue for 3.6 miles.
(You could turn left on Kaiminani Drive to get to the Hawaii Belt Road, but we do not recommend using Kaiminani Drive because you would be forced to take a left turn onto the Hawaii Belt Road without the benefit of a traffic light.)

Turn right onto Saddle Road; continue for 25.7 miles
Turn left onto the Mauna Kea Observatories Access Road; continue for 6.4 miles.
