The historic Kailua Kona Town on Big Island

Kailua-Kona is a town on the west coast of Hawaii Island (the Big Island). Hulihee Palace is a former royal vacation home dating from 1838. In ancient times, this area was considered the premier place to live due to the excellent weather and good water. This charming town mixes numerous historical sites with modern tourist attractions.
