About the Kailua Kona, Hawaii Area

Located on the Big Island, Kona is found in the west corner, bordered by South Kohala, Hamakua, Ka’u, and South Kona. Its most well-known town, Kailua-Kona, is centrally-located and loved for its beautiful beaches, rich history, and wide variety of things to see and do—as well as once being the home for Hawaiian royalty. 

The Kailua Kona area stretches from Kukio in the north, all the way down to Honalo. As typical of the rest of the island, residential neighborhoods and the most exciting urban areas are dotted along the coast, ensuring that you’re never too far away from the water. There's also a great effort towards conserving the natural beauty of the island, so traveling towards the center of Kailua Kona, away from the coast, will allow you to experience stunning landscapes, lush forests, and winding hiking trails.
