Your guide to Kailua-Kona

All About Kailua-Kona

The largest town on the island of Hawaii, Kailua-Kona is known for its prime diving and deep-sea fishing conditions and its extensive coffee production. There are hundreds of coffee farms here, which means plenty of opportunities to sample world-class beans. When all that sipping has you working up an appetite, the restaurants offer renowned chefs serving up modern twists on island classics.

And when you’re looking to get in the ocean, the waters in southern Kona are often clear and calm as they’re shielded from the wind by Mauna Loa. This makes for excellent snorkeling and diving conditions, with a potential dolphin or Hawaiian green sea turtle occasionally making an appearance. Manta ray boat tours are also in high demand here, with people itching to catch a glimpse of the second largest species native to local waters.

Back on land, head to Kaloko Honokohau National Historical Park for opportunities to explore sacred temples, petroglyphs, and fishponds central to Native Hawaiian life.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Kailua-Kona?

Hawaii’s perennially warm weather makes it a great place to visit all year round, with temperatures very rarely dropping below 75 degrees Fahrenheit. That said, there’s always an increased chance of showers and surf swells during the winter. The big waves make winter time a draw for seasoned surfers. For those looking for calmer seas, late spring or early fall are good times to go as the beaches aren’t quite as popular as during peak summer months.


What are the top things to do in Kailua-Kona?

Hulihe‘e Palace

Built from lava rock, this museum was originally a summer palace for Hawaiian royalty. Today you can view traditional Hawaiian koa furniture, feather work, quilts, and other artifacts on display. On one Sunday each month, the palace holds a cultural day featuring traditional Hawaiian music and hula on the lawn.

Pololu Valley

Just a short drive up the Kohala coast you’ll find Awini Trail, a 25-minute hiking trail leading to Pololu Valley Lookout. This is one of the best lookouts on the island — but note that you’ll be working up a sweat to earn that perfect Hawaii photo. Cool off on your way down the trail with a stop on the stunning black sands of Pololu Valley Beach.

Night scuba dives

Manta rays are nocturnal creatures, and hundreds of them flock to the plankton-rich waters near Kona for their daily feast. Local outfitters offer snorkeling and scuba diving trips where you can witness these gentle creatures without disturbing them in their natural habitat.
