Steve conducts an informative tour about “everything vanilla” from the vanilla plants (types, history, how they are grown, pollinated, and harvested,...) to how vanilla beans are cured to how vanilla extract is made.
Serving complimentary ice cream made with their home-grown vanilla beans, and beautiful greenery and tropical plants, the Vanillery is an oasis on the western coast of the Big Island.

A blessed place to celebrate Mass We visited Hawaii for our summer vacation in 2018 - the Big Island, Oahu and Kauai.
Fr. Lio and the members of St. Michael's know that a significant number of attendees are visiting the Kailua-Kona area and make a concerted effort to make Mass attendance easy for visitors.

Free tour was great - do the self guided tour for $10 per group - five minute walk through the trees on paved sidewalk viewing various Hawaiian vegetation like ginger acavado and Hawaiian fern:) buy the Kona Coffe...
Check out the gift shop to pick up a few bags to bring home some truly excellent coffee - I recommend the peaberry a bit costly but well worth the price the taste more than makes up for the cost.

The road offers a tour through the subtle beauty of the rainforest, gorgeous mountain vistas, lava flats, pasturelands, and, as you drop down on the Kona (leeward) side, the ocean rolls out before you.
Great road to see both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea views, it was super cloudy at the start coming from Hilo across but the clouds dwindled toward the top and we got some amazing views of the mountains.

Situated on the busy seafront road this amazing old church has a tranquil atmosphere about it, as well as being a great gem for history buffs.
... with lava stones hosts services and holiday events for both locals & visitors alike... as of late 2019/2020, there’s reconstruction taking place to restore this historic spot (it’s the oldest church in Hawaii).

... and a yummy Mexican cafe as well... one of our favorite places is the Dovetail Gallery, which features beautiful pieces made of wood, ceramics, and other media (plus super friendly owners and their pup too).
Instead of buying faux souvenirs at the tourist spots, you should drive up to Holualoa and check out their wonderful galleries, where local artists display their special creations :)).

It's close to the old lava church which was built with the wood from one of the first sail boats to bring the Christians missionaries there around 1800.
Enjoyed sights and sounds.

The small sandy beach in front of the King Kamehameha Hotel, just to the right of the Kailua pier, offers an amazingly calm and gentle place to swim and snorkel.
National Park does a nice job- Just follow the signs and read about early Hawaiian History- Highly recommend

Found right next to the Kona Marriott and at the north end of Alii Drive, this well restored structure floats at the opening of a calm bay next to the Kona Pier, and is easily viewed from this spot.
It’s easy to view while strolling through downtown Kona and is also a very popular photo spot too... Enjoy this famous Kona landmark!

We walked around the lava rocks and explore all of the little tide pools and found a hole in the rocks where the waves splashed up, it was beautiful.
My daughter and I had a lot of fun poking around the tide pools and watching the waves crash against the outer rocks.

We got to see the fresh green beans and watch them being roasted, had a couple of fresh roasted cups of 100% Kona coffee as we toured and its evident how much they love what they do and how much they love their farm.
The turn off is a tiny driveway that is well hidden the coffee farm is gorgeous back behind the house however the tours are by appt only and the owner is out of town.
