the mountains block the northeasterly trade winds, so it gets very little rain and has sunny days almost all year. The Ironman Triathlon World Championship in October and the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament in August are hosted in Kailua Kona.
Impressive Historical Spots
Historical sites in the area include the first Christian church in Hawaii as well as the Queen’s Palace. There are many petroglyphs found in Kaloko-Honokahou National Park. Many of the coffee plantations started a century ago are still producing coffee and you can take a tour and sample coffee for free at Bayview Farms or visit the Kona Coffee Living History Farm.
One of the oldest buildings in the region is the H.N. Greenwell Store. It is a museum now and has costumed guides to greet you and show you all the features of daily life in Hawaii more than a hundred years ago. There is also a walking tour of the Historic Kailua Village. You need reservations, but it is well worth the effort.
Amazing Outdoor Activities
Outdoor recreation during a Kona timeshare vacation is dominated by the ocean. Swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling, boating and fishing opportunities are abundant and the mountains are great for hiking, biking, caving and four-wheeling. The best way to see the whole island is a helicopter tour. Much of the wild beauty in the mountains is inaccessible by foot. You will see verdant valleys, waterfalls, many beaches with black, green and white sand and volcanos – especially Kilauea in incredible Volcanoes National Park.
Kona is also famous for its nightlife. One of the most popular places for locals and visitors is Huggo’s on the Rocks. It usually has a live band and always has great sunsets. It’s also open in the morning for coffee by the sea. Another favorite hangout is LuLu’s. It’s upstairs and open air.
Flexibility of Exchange
Owning a Kailua Kona timeshare is the most affordable way to enjoy all the island has to offer. It is so popular that you would have no trouble trading it for a comparable timeshare from one of hundreds of first-class vacation spots around the world. By trading your timeshare, you have already paid for your accommodation, so international travel becomes that much cheaper. A timeshare offers all the comforts of home including a kitchen without the hassle of maintenance and upkeep, and Kailua Kona is one of the best places in the world for vacation ownership.
