What we love most about Kona, Hawaii.

Clock Posted Aug 13, 2019

Tri Travel have been hosting their famous Hawaii Tour to the IRONMAN for 19 years. They are the Hawaii experts, and they show their tour members that there is more than just triathlon on the Big Island.

Kona is of course most famous for the IRONMAN, but there are many other attractions on the island that visitors and holiday makers enjoy.

Coffee drinkers will recognise Kona as the source of some of the best beans in the world. Get your blood pumping with a walk along the “Royal Footsteps” waterfront stretch of Alii Drive, or take stargazing to the next level with a nighttime visit to the summit of Mauna Kea. Waterfalls, volcanoes, and soft black sands are just some of the natural features that make Kailua unique. Shimmy your hips at a hula-filled luau, or get an eyeful of native history at the Kamakahonu compound.

The west coast of Hawaii is known as the “Kona Side” and Kailua-Kona is the lively center of it all. This historic seaside town sits in the middle of the Kona coast, a few miles south of the Kona International Airport (KOA).Not too long ago Kona was a sleepy fishing village. Now, because of its central location and great weather it has transformed into a lively town that is the activity capital of the Big Island. It is the city on the Big Island that is best equipped for tourism.

There are many shops and farmers markets selling locally produced items and there is a good offering of restaurants. This makes Kona a good and central home base to explore the west coast of the island. Relax and look at the waves crashing over the black lava rocks while sipping from a cup of the world-famous Kona coffee, or have some freshly caught ahi (tuna) while recovering from your busy day.
