Kona Mini Guide

The district of Kona is located on the big island of Hawaii. We provide cars to holidaymakers are at a low cost so they can enjoy the fantastic weather and vibrant coastline of these islands. Hawaii is about a five-hour flight from the west coast of mainland America and these tropical islands are considered to be a state of the USA. Yet Hawaii shares more in common with other on Polynesian islands such as Fiji and Tahiti. Culturally the people are very similar.

Kailua Kona beach

Kona itself is the name of a moku, which is the Hawaiian word for district and it is divided into North Kona and South Kona District. The word Kona means leeward which is the dry side of the island. This is because when cyclones would hit the westward of the island it would cause rain and they would lose their moisture. The largest town in Kona is Kailua Kona although some of the other nearby towns are Holualoa, Honaunau, Honalo Kealakekua and Keauhou.

A good time of year to go to Kona might be when the world famous Ironman World Championship is taking place. This is a grueling Triathlon which takes place annually in October in Kona. Another point of interest for tourists is the Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park which is where the discoverer Captain James Cook was killed in 1779. It is one of the few national parks in Kona. Choose four wheel drive car hire Kona vehicles for comfortable trip in any weather.
