United States Hawaii


A scenic town on the Big Island's western coast known for its coffee farms, clear waters, historical landmarks, and Ironman Triathlon event.

Tips from the community

Driving around the Big Island we stopped along the coast of Kailua-Kona. The coast is made of lava rocks and it's fascinating but also dangerous, so you have to be careful. The water is so clear and there are always huge waves. Not the perfect spot to surf because of the big amount of rocks, but definitely worth the view.
