Introducing North Kona Coast

Dropping from the lush Kohala Mountains where cows graze on tall green grass down to the sere North Kona Coast is a shock. Interminable lava fields blanket this forbidding coast, but penetrate those fields and you'll be snorkeling with turtles, walking on black sand and experiencing an iconic Kona sunset. Turn mauka (inland) and you'll see Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa (both snowcapped in winter) and, between the two, Mt Hualalai. North Kona technically runs 33 miles along Queen Kaʻahumanu Hwy (Hwy 19), from Kailua-Kona up the Kona Coast to Kawaihae, where South Kohala begins.
