Big Island, Kona - Beach Information

Kailua-Kona is the Heart of Hawaii Kailua-Kona, Hawaii is on the west side of the Big Island. Sometimes referred to just as “Kona,” this historic fishing village has transformed into a tourist hot spot. In fact, the west coast of the Big Island is referred to as the “Kona Side,” and it is known for its white sand beaches, lush golf courses, and historic parks. If you are looking for your ideal Hawaiian getaway, set your sights on a Kailua-Kona beach house rental and spend a few days enjoying Hawaii the way it is meant to be seen.

A Perfect Day at the Beach

When you step out of your Kailua-Kona beach house and head for the sand, you will be on your way to the perfect beach experience, no matter what time of year you visit Kona. This is because the normal temperature fluctuation for the island is only seven degrees between the hottest and coldest days of the year (from 74 degrees Fahrenheit in February to 81 degrees in August). And because Kailua-Kona is on the leeward side of the Hualalai Volcano, this region is sheltered from wind and rain, meaning that conditions here are almost always sunny.

Sunset in Kona

Several white sand beaches dot the shore, providing ample opportunities for sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming, beach combing, canoeing, and other water activities. Kamakahonu Beach (also know as King Kam Beach or Kids’ Beach) is very sheltered, which means that there is almost no wave activity here. This creates the perfect conditions for young children to play in the water, and it also makes this beach a popular destination for snorkeling, dive instruction, canoeing/kayaking, and swimming. If you are looking for a beach with a bit more kick, White Sands Beach Park has active breakers, which make for great surfing. Lifeguards are on duty here, and a volleyball net is set up on the sand.

Nature, History, and Culture of Hawaii

Your Kailua-Kona beach house rental will put you close to some very unique ocean-life experiences that you can have only in Kona. The famous Kona Manta Ray Night Dive is not to be missed. Whether you participate as a diver or snorkeler, you will be privileged to witness a flurry of manta ray activity as they feed on plankton, spotlighted by dive lights as they swoop through the water with their mouths open. At the Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm, you will learn about seahorses and the ecological concerns that endanger them, and you will finish off your visit by holding a live seahorse!

Kailua-Kona lies on the west side of the Hualalai Volcano. This region has been inhabited since before recorded history, and today it hosts several ecological preserves that protect rare species of birds and animals. Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park was established to preserve and protect traditional native Hawaiian activities and culture. The ancient settlement of Honokohau lies in this park, featuring historic Hawaiian aquaculture fishponds, house sites, and religious sites. The park is also home to trails, wetlands, and a boat harbor.

For a taste of Hawaiian culture, be sure to participate in a luau. Several of the hotels in Kona host luaus and hula performances, which provide both great food and family-friendly entertainment. Ali'i Drive is the main road that rims the coast in the Kona area, mixing updated shopping and dining venues with archeological sites, historic royal residences, and church structures dating back to the 1800s, all with the backdrop of the seawall.

Remote beach in Kona

Kailua-Kona is the perfect blend of Hawaii then and now. Whether you are relaxing on the beach, hiking the volcano, or admiring art in a gallery on Ali'i Drive, you are experiencing the best of Hawaiian history and future. If you want to capture the spirit of Hawaii on your next vacation, rent a beach house in Kailua-Kona.
