Why We Love It

Kailua-Kona, located on the Big Island of Hawaii, was once a small fishing village home to kings and Hawaiian royalty. Now, sitting just west of the Hualālai Volcano, it is known for its coffee beans, sport fishing, snorkeling, sunsets, and lush landscapes consisting of waterfalls, volcanoes, and black sand.

Free (or Almost Free) Stuff To Do

Royal Footsteps Waterfront Stretch of Alii Drive

The town's main road with waterfront restaurants, shops and points-of-interest.

Mauna Kea

A dormant volcano home to hiking trails and the highest point in Hawaii.

Magic Sands Beach

Named because the sand often disappears due to tidal and surf, it is one of the only beaches with fine white sand, a rocky lava coastline and restrooms. Great spot for surfing and body-boarding.

Kaloko-Honokohau National Park

A park that preserves how Native Hawaiian settlers survived on the rugged black lava rock coastline.

Kahaluu Beach

A popular beach for the sea turtles who frequent the sand. Great spot for snorkeling!
