Kailua-Kona a Great Hawaiian Vacation

Last month I had a wonderful visit to Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii and saw many interesting attractions. This wonderful town has so much to offer to the curious visitor who loves Hawaii’s culture and history and natural beauty.

Kailua-Kona is located at the base of Hualalai Volcano which is more than 8,000 feet tall. King Kamehameha ran his kingdom from Kailua from 1812 until his death in 1819.

Today the Kona Coast is well known for its great fishing as well as diving and snorkeling. Many boat charters depart from Kailua Pier as well as Honokohau Harbor. I rented a beautiful Kailua-Kona Condominium very close to the harbor so I could enjoy the area as much as possible.
