Because Kona International Airport hosts flights from Asia, the U.S. mainland, and connecting flights from around the world through Honolulu, North Kona is the vacation gateway to the Big Island. The main town of Kailua-Kona is where many visitors get their first real taste of Hawaii. But beyond being a very popular vacation destination with a shifting daily population of cruise ship passengers and international visitors, West Hawaii is also a fine place to live.
Kailua-Kona bustles daily with lively small-town charm and warmth. A short drive “up the hill” to Holualoa on the slopes of Mt. Hualalai takes you to a fascinating village located on one of Hawaii's historic by-ways. Big Island, mainland, and Pacific Rim lifestyles and values are elegantly blended in these West Hawaii communities. Kona serves as a visible, dynamic example of Hawaii’s famed melting pot of races and cultures.
