Travelers looking to get away from the crowds in Waikiki will be impressed with the laid back lifestyle in this favorite Big Island city. Located on the southern part of the island, Kona is blessed with more days of sun than any other city in the island chain. Kona is renowned for its black volcanic rock and beaches. It's also home to some of the best snorkeling and diving in the state. Sunbathers will enjoy the Manini'owali Beach, while those looking for a unique attraction can head north to check out the area's active volcanoes or the Mauna Kea Summit.
Visitors should not underestimate the size of the Big Island. Transportation between cities is best done by rental car, and you’ll find there are companies who rent from Kona's airport. The airport in Kona is one of two that serve the island, with the other being located in Hilo. The airport is located off of the city's major thoroughfare and it is a matter of minutes to the downtown area where you’ll find top restaurants like Big Island Grill, and hotels are located.
Kona is home to the annual Ironman championships where triathletes from around the world come to compete against the brutal course. You can watch participants compete in the ocean and on land for the crown.
