Although simply known as Kona to locals, the full name of this Hawaiian town is Kailua-Kona. Located on the western shore of the Big Island, it’s the perfect place to be at sunset—a fact not lost on the tourism industry.
Here is where you’ll find more fellow travellers per square metre than any other place on the islands, so throw back a beer and get to know them. Or better yet, throw back a cuppa, since Kona is also home to delicious Kona Coffee—arguably the best thing to come out of Hawaii since the lei.
What’s a better use of your Kona Car rental than free samples? That’s right: You can hit all the major coffee plantation tours and hop yourself up on enough caffeine to last you for days. Maybe you won’t need that Kona accommodation after all, huh?
Meanwhile, you can see where Hawaiian Royalty once laid their heads at the Hulihe'e Palace. And how about an old airport-turned-drag-racing-strip-turned-beachfront park? Just aim your Kona car hire at Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area and let ‘er rip.
Want to expand your Kona holiday? Head inland and drive 100km up to Mauna Kea, the highest peak in Hawaii, for a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. How about one of Hawaii’s famous waterfalls? ‘Akaka Falls is just 140km away, right near Hilo.
And hey…you’ve seen white sand beaches and black sand beaches. But have you ever seen a green sand beach? Now’s your chance! Rent a car in Kona and head 100km to South Point Park and climb down to the beach. It’s quite a sight!
