The sunny Kona District stretches almost two-thirds of the entire West side of the island of Hawaii. Kona was the first capital of Hawaii. There are lots of historical landmarks within walking distance of the pier.
It was a beautiful sunny day when we arrived at Kona so some of our group went snorkeling. They found Fair Winds Cruises to take them and they all had a great time.
The rest of the group decided to just explore the city a bit and shop. We had a very relaxing lunch and proceeded to go shopping. A friend of one of our cousin’s lived in Kona and operated a bead shop so we all went there and found some interesting beads. We also stopped by a flower market that had lots of colorful flowers.
Both groups then met up at the Kona Brewing Company for some beer. Kona Brewing Company is a brewery in Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island. Since October 1, 2010, it has been owned by Craft Brew Alliance. Kona’s year-round beers include Longboard Island Lager, Big Wave Golden Ale, and Fire Rock Pale Ale
