Waimea is situated on the Big island’s northern tip that Dr. B refers to as the ‘Golden Triangle,’ which consists of Hawi and Kapaau towns to the north (Kohala Coast), Kawaihae town on the west (Kohala Coast) and - crossing through Waimea (the saddle) - to Honoka’a town,on the east (Hamakua Coast).
Many of the best B.I. beachcomb beaches are located on both the Kohala and Hamakua Coasts, so Waimea is ideally placed to access both in a timely fashion.
Because of its location, Waimea can be accessed easily from both Kona (45 minute drive) and Hilo (an hour drive) airports via Rte 19. Waimea town has only three traffic lights and only one main road (Rte. 19) traversing through it. Hawaii Belt Road
You should not have too much trouble finding the Kamuela Inn, though it is tucked off the main road behind several green painted buildings housing antique and realty shops. Call the hotel or check their website for further details.
There are a number of rental car companies at both Kona and Hilo airports. There are also shuttle services to and from the airport. If enough participants prefer not to rent a car during IBC, we may provide paid shuttle service on specific days to and from Kona airport as well.
