Things to do in Kona

From night snorkeling with manta rays, riding a para-sail boat, or visiting a restored cultural landmark like nearby Puuhonua o Honaunau (“place of refuge”) to shopping, golf, or simply enjoying the sun on a local beach, there’re always plenty of things to do in Kona. A good way to start is to stroll through this small town on the leeward side of the Big Island and enjoy its art galleries, charming restaurants, and contemporary boutiques.
