Sunny Kona is home to sun-drenched beaches and megaresorts, the tourism capital of the Big Island. Most of the best beaches are located along the coast from Kona to southern Kohala. Famous for the yearly Ironman signature event, you should plan around this race that shuts half of the island down. This town has the confusion of many names: Kona, Kailua, Kailua-Kona, and Kona Town.
