From Kona International Airport, head one mile south toward Kailua Kona on the Queen Kaahumanu Hwy (Route 19) and take a right exit on Makako Bay Drive, following the sign for the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority(NELHA), and through the NELHA gate. (You will see two big solar panels on the right side of the highway). Drive about one mile toward the ocean. Big Island Abalone Corporation is on the left just before the beach. Our premium Japanese “Ezo” abalone are sold Monday through Friday at our farm entrance from 8 am to 4 pm.
