Hotels in Kona

Kailua-Kona or "Kona" by the locals, is on the west coast of the Hawaii Island. This beach-side town is 26 miles from the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The weather is almost always dry and sunny and there are many white sand beaches and world-famous golf courses. South of Kona you’ll find fantastic snorkeling spots and the climate here is more humid and perfect for growing the world-famous Kona coffee. Kona is also famous for its deep-sea fishing.
