Car Hire Kona

Kona Airport Guide

Kona is most famous for the coffee that grows locally under the Kona brand. If you want to see where your pick me up is produced, several of the plantations do tours and you can buy their coffee afterwards to take home.

If you want a bit of adventure, Kona has nearly all you need; there’s night time diving to watch manta rays feed or boat trips for whale watching. Also on the water you can take tours on traditional Hawaiian rafts or learn to surf. Kona is also renowned for its yoga and several centres will help you turn the activity into the perfect form of meditation and relaxation.


Kona Airport Directions

Kona Airport is north of the city of Kailua Kona and the journey is quick and scenic by hire car along the coastal route 19. The eight mile journey should take you around twenty minutes.


Kona Airport Parking

As with many US airports, Kona offers cell phone parking for those simply collecting a passenger they have contact with. There’s stationary parking in three lots, short term, long term and easy access for the less mobile.


Kona Airport Flight Information

Kona has many flights from across the US and for European travellers, the route from Chicago O’Hare is a very useful connection.


Hotels Near Kona Airport

We like the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and spa at $85 a night for its location and facilities. If you don’t want to spend that much, try the Kona Seaside Hotel, right on the beach, it’ll only cost you $47 a night.


Kona Time Zone

Kona is 10 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time and located in the Hawaiian Time Zone (GMT-10)

Kona Info

Kona was the original capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the seat of government of one of the islands’ greatest kings; Kamehameha the First. Many Europeans and Americans were welcomed at his court in the early 19th century but despite its importance, it remained a small fishing village until half a century ago. Now it is crammed with condos and hotels and is another piece in the jigsaw that is the Hawaiian tourism sector.

Kona Trivia:
  • Kona is more often known as Kailua Kona, Kailua meaning leeward
  • The city was the closest to the 2006 earthquake
  • It was the first capital of the unified Kingdom of Hawaii
  • The city was still a small village up to the 1950s when tourism began to make its mark
