North Kona District - Big Island of Hawaii
The North Kona district is an internationally popular vacation and sport fishing center. Charter sport fishing is big business here, and each year teams come from around the world to compete in the Hawaii International Billfish Tournament for record-breaking marlin.
North Kona District Overview
Because of the rich coral reefs and abundant populations of colorful reef fish and other marine life in its nearshore waters, the North Kona coast is also fast becoming an internationally popular snorkeling and scuba diving destination.
Many ancient historical sites can still be visited along the coast and even within the town of Kailua Kona.
The town of Kailua Kona also has the second largest airport on the island and accepts flights from neighboring islands as well as the mainland.
