Kona Self-Guided Tour

Here are some popular sights and attractions you may want to check out if you choose not to do a shore excursion and explore Hilo, Kona on your own:

  • Puuhonua O Honaunau, City of Refuge
    In ancient times, anyone caught violating a "kapu," or a sacred taboo, was captured and put to death unless he could reach a Puuhonua (Place of Refuge). There he could be absolved of the violation by the priest and safely return home forgiven. O Honaunau is the most well preserved of the sacred puuhonuas in the islands. It is a National Historic Park which includes ruins of the king's home, heiau (temples), royal fish ponds, the huge wall that separated the chief's residence from the puuhonua, along with canoe-building demonstrations, spear-throwing competitions, and other replications of early island life. Puuhonua O Honaunau, City of Refuge is located about 20 miles south of Kailua-Kona, just beyond the town of Captain Cook.
  • Kona Coffee Plantation
    The Kona Coffee Plantation boasts one of the most sought-after brews in the world. The lush mountain regions and the fact that they get more rain in the summer than in the winter make Kona coffee unique. This is the only region in the U.S. where coffee production has been ongoing for over 100 years. Several to visit in the area, are Pele Plantations, Holualoa Kona Coffee Company, and Bay View Farm.
  • Snorkeling
    The Kona, or west side of Hawaii, provides the best snorkeling spots on the island and some of the most unique species of fish and coral in the world. The black sand beach is protected and it’s an easy walk to the snorkeling spots. Kona is a great place for kids and beginners to snorkle because of the shallow waters. Green sea turtles will even come up on shore to graze occasionally! The park has picnic tables, equipment rental, lifeguards, shade trees, and concession stands for lunch and drinks.
