More About Kona Coast

Overview

Offering ample sun and clear waters, the Kona Coast is the prime area on Hawaii Island for discovering marine life. The calm and clear waters aid in spotting passing dolphin pods, manta rays, and honu (green sea turtles).

Historic Kailua Town is a seaside village on the Kona Coast. Down on Alii Drive, you can stop in and tour the Hulihee Palace and the Mokuaikaua Church. The Hulihee Palace was built in 1838 as a summer home for Hawaiian royalty and today is a museum with artifacts from King Kalakaua and Queen Kapiolani. Before heading back to your resort, stop off at the Kailua Pier for some spectacular sunsets.

To the south of Kona Airport is the Kaloko-Honokohau and Puuhonua o Honaunau National Parks. The Kaloko-Honokohau National Park is home to Hawaiian fishponds, kii pohaku (petroglyphs) and heiau (sacred place of worship). The visitor center offers excellent insight into what life was like for Native Hawaiians. Puuhonua o Honaunau National Park, once Royal grounds and a place of refuge for ancient Hawaiians who broke kapu (the law) is hundreds of years old and beautifully restored.

No trip to the Kona Coast could be complete without a stop at a local coffee farm. Reflect on your vacation and relive the memories with family and friends with a cup of 100% Kona coffee. The perfect souvenir to bring home.
