Best Things to do in Kona Hawai’i

Do you know the best things to do in Hawai’i? There is a lot to choose from when you visit this part of the Big Island. Fun and exciting things to do in Kona include starting your day with a cup of world-famous Kona coffee, exploring the abundant natural beauty of Kona, and ending the day with a traditional luau experience.

Let’s learn more about these experiences with Kailani Tours, an expert at providing extraordinary experiences and concierge-style service for the ultimate Kona sightseers!

Start Your Day at the Iconic Kona Coffee Farms

Kona coffee is famous for its exceptional aroma and mildly sweet, lingering aftertaste. You’ll enjoy savoring this famous coffee when you join us for a tour of the farms that produce this unique delight. The rich, volcanic soil on the western slopes of Kona, HI, is the only place in the world where this exclusive coffee can be produced. Its unique soil and the perfect amount of Hawaiian sunshine and rain create the ideal conditions for producing this iconic coffee.

Kailani Tours offers day tours where you will be able to learn how this world-famous coffee is grown, harvested, and processed for drinking. A must-see if you are staying in Kona, Hawai’i!

Explore the Natural Beauty of Kona

And there’s a lot to explore! From spectacular volcanoes to breathtaking falls to exquisite black sand beaches, there is no shortage of things to see and do in Hawai’i. Enjoy one of our eight-hour volcano tours, where you will experience the heartbeat of Hawai’i in the magnificent Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

Based in Kona, Hawai’i, Kailani Tours offers a Big Island Highlights Day tour, which showcases some of the best things to do from Kona all the way down to Hilo. During this full-day, all-inclusive tour, you will experience the food, culture, history, and scenery of the Big Island with the help of our passionate and expert guides. You may even see a majestic sea turtle during our stop at gorgeous Punaluʻu Black Sand Beach!

These are just a sampling of our curated tours. Of course, you can also design your own experiences with one of our signature private tours.

Enjoy a Traditional Luau Experience

Did you know that luau means “taro plant” in Hawaiian? Taro is an important component of these celebratory feasts and is featured in a popular luau dish where meat or fish and vegetables are steamed in taro (luau) leaves. Other popular and traditional luau dishes include kalua pua’a (pork roasted in an imu (underground oven)), lomi salmon, poi, sweet potatoes, haupia (coconut pudding), and a variety of Hawaiian fruits.

These once-royal feasts eventually became a popular way for family and friends to celebrate special events such as a birthday, graduation, or even launching a new canoe. Now, extravagant luaus have become popular with locals and tourists alike. Luau guests can experience Hawaiian customs, food, and entertainment, such as Hula dancing and Polynesian fire knife dancing first-hand.
