Hi, we are a group of 4 going to BI in mid Oct for 6 nites. Will fly into Kona and drive to Hilo. Staying 2 nites in Volcano village. Then drive back to Kona for the rest. Now we are torn between where to stay in Kona.
Kailua(condo, causal dinning, grocery shopping but no beach). Waikoloa(beautiful beach, snorkeling, but expensive dining out every meal)
Is Kailua a good central location for us to explore Kona? We are appreciate any suggestion!! Thanks.
