Kailua Kona Cruises
The legendary Kona Coast is famous for its fine weather and inviting beaches. The Hawaiian people tend to personify this area and speak of it as being "lean and voluptuous." Its being sunny and dry is described as "Kona sunning herself."
A district of the Big Island, Kona encompasses the western coast and lies at the foot of towering Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Here one finds bright, clear days and magnificent sunsets.
While the island's raw volcanic landscape can hardly be described as "pretty," you won't want to miss the eerie Volcanoes National Park. In contrast, the string of dazzling resorts that have sprung up along the coast present quite a different face. Lush landscapes and gardens have been created over what were once only lava flows. At the center of this transformation is the bustling town of Kailua.
Remember to "hang loose" while you are here. No one is in much of a hurry, and there is no need to rush when you are in paradise.
