Home to Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, Hawaii is sure to surprise and delight at every Kona car rental twist and turn. Whether you and your family are in search of natural beauty, exotic wildlife, outdoor adventures or a day at the beach, you'll find it on the Big Island. Aloha!
Soak up the sun
For families that are fans of the beach, Hawaii is a no-brainer. Let the kids play in the sand while you soak up the rays at one of Hawaii's premier beaches. Take your Kona rental car to a beach like Kahalu'u Beach Park, Magic Sands Beach Park or Shipwreck Beach. Boasting year-round warm weather, Hawaii has long been the favorite American destination for beach goers. Or, visit the Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area. This beach paradise offers picnicking, surfing, fishing and sandcastle-building opportunities for kids and adults alike.
Swim with the dolphins
If your child has never had the opportunity to experience dolphin love, now is the time to introduce him or her to these magnificent marine mammals. Your Kona car rental will get you where you need to go; take a journey to Dolphin Discoveries or Dolphin Quest. Dolphin Discoveries offers snorkeling, dolphin swimming and whale watching trips. At Dolphin Quest, your little ones will be overjoyed to make the acquaintance of finned residents - although these flippered friends don't speak English, they certainly love to play.
A break from the beach
When you and your little ones begin to feel overheated, head indoors to the kid-friendly Fun Factory. Video games, air hockey, carnival rides and more will allow your kids to enjoy this fun-centered world with other children, and will allow mom and dad some time to relax. Bumper cars and other indoor carnival activities are great for energetic kids, and some time to cool off will do worlds of good for cranky kiddos.
Kona is a city that loves change – and lives it 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So instead of simply lounging on the beach and soaking in the sun, snag one of our Kona rental cars and discover what this exciting city has to offer.
Top down – or windows down, as the case may be – there’s no better place to break in your Kona car rental than the Queen K Highway up to Waimea, where each October Ironman tri-athletes push their bodies to the limits on one of the most scenic routes in Hawaii. Along the way, stop and take in the view, take a few pictures and grab a bite to eat. On the way home, watch as the sunset explodes into the sky (and take a few more pictures).
Tomorrow, take one of our Kona rental cars up to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and explore the rumbling, rocky earth – and some of the most magnificent views on the island. When you’re done, head over to one of the area’s world-famous coffee plantations to sip some brew, wander the plantation and just enjoy the scenery. Tonight – take in a traditional luau and make the entire day about what Hawaii is famous for.
Of course, if a “go, go, go” vacation isn’t your thing, relaxing at the beach is always fantastic. But you owe it to yourself to explore at least a few of the world-famous beaches in the area, so pack your swimsuits, towels and flip-flops and take your Kona car rental to some of the best. A few local favorites include the disappearing sands of White Sands Beach County Park, Kahaluu Beach Park and Old Kona Airport State Recreation area.
Ka Huaka`i Maika`i! (That’s Bon Voyage, in Hawaiian.)
