Big Island Activities and Attractions

The heart of Kailua-Kona is the mile long oceanfront stretch of Alii Drive starting at the Kailua Pier.  In this part of town you will see lots of shops and restaurants.  To the right of the pier is the restored Temple of King Kamehameha the Great.  To the left of the pier is

the starting gate of the Ironman Triathlon.  Farther down is the Hulihe’e Palace (daughtersofhawaii.com) now a museum run by the Daughters of Hawai’i.  Across the street from the sea wall is good shave ice at Ocean View.http://www.daughtersofhawaii.comshapeimage_6_link_0

Some good spots to watch the sunset from the Downtown Kona area are Huggo’s (huggos.com), Bubba Gump (bubbagump.com/locations/kona.html) and the Royal Kona Resort (royalkona.com).  Enjoy the Farmers’ Market on Alii Drive.  Further down Alii Drive is White Sands Beach, a quaint little church - St. Peters Church, known locally as the “Little Blue Church” and  Kahalu’u Beach Park for easy access to good snorkeling.


If you head out of Kona and go South you won’t have to drive far and you’ll be in Kona Coffee country where you’ll find coffee samples galore.  A few of the good ones are Greenwell (greenwellfarms.com) and Bayview (bayviewfarmcoffees.com).


Visit Pu’uhonua o Honaunau, also called The Place of Refuge (nps.gov/puho/); Volcanoes National Park (nps.gov/havo) and if you go to Hilo, be sure to visit Big Island Candies (bigislandcandies.com) and try a chocolate dipped shortbread....yummm...


World class beaches, snorkeling, parasailing, dinner cruises, Luau’s, rafting, kayaking, diving, deep sea fishing......these are just a few of the activities available to you on the Big Island of Hawaii.
