EXPLORE THE MANY THINGS TO DO ON THE BIG ISLAND
Hawaii, also known as the Big Island - is the size of all the other Hawaiian islands combined. It's the most geographically diverse island of the archipelago, with deserts, rainforests, volcanoes and, surprisingly, snow-capped mountains.
The mountains create a barrier that blocks the northeasterly trade winds, making the western side of the island the driest region in the archipelago. This coast has the best beaches and water conditions. The eastern coast is rugged, with pounding surf, tropical rainforests and majestic waterfalls.
Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay is located on 22 oceanfront acres, a short drive from Kona International Airport and Historic Kailua Village. Our central location makes us the perfect destination from which to explore the Big Island's many activities and things to do - from stargazing on Mauna Kea Summit and visiting Volcanoes National Park to experiencing the dramatic valleys and black sand beaches of the Hamakua Coast. Additional attractions include world-class snorkeling and even a green sand beach in the south.
There are many wonderful places to eat and enjoy island views. The more you do, the more you experience, the more you’ll understand what makes Hawaii, the Big Island, so special.
