One of the main draws of Kona is its stunning natural scenery, so take advantage of the views by spending your time in Kona outside on the beach. Lie on the soft sand beach of one of the luxurious Kona hotels, where you can relax in a lounge chair, snorkel, or learn how to surf. You can also visit one of the public beaches in town, like Manini'owali Beach or Makalawena, which promise to be among the world's best spots for seeing underwater sea life. There are many hotels in Kona that offer easy access to the Big Island's best beach destinations. If you want a view of the island's natural beauty from above, climb to the top of Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano that is the highest point in the state of Hawaii.
There's plenty of fun to be had in Kona that's not on the beach or at one of the luxury Kona resorts, so head to some of the island's best attractions for delicious food, refreshing drinks, and a fascinating taste of local Hawaiian culture. Kona has some great coffee spots and don't miss the chance to have a fresh cup brewed from local beans. For a unique look at the Big Island's history, take a tour of the Hulihe'e Palace, a historic state monument.
