Kailua, HI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2015 -- The Royal Kona Resort, a premium resort located in West Hawaii, has recently written and published an informational article about its home town of Kailua-Kona. While the Resort covers a large and well-appointed grounds, the surrounding town offers plenty of attractions in itself; in fact, the region is fairly well-known by name even on the US mainland, as the origin and namesake of the Kona coffee variety.

Today, Kailua Kona is a major economic center, and one of the Big Island's main destinations for rest and tourism, Hawaii family vacations as well as destination Hawaii weddings and honeymoons. However, the town has a fairly long and diverse history that precedes its recent rise as a tourist attraction. The article briefly touches on this history, mentioning Kailua's past as capital of the Hawaiian kingdom, as well as a center of fishing and whaling; the town was also an outpost of Christian missionary activity in the 19th century. Much of this history has been preserved by local historic societies that maintain buildings from that era.
The article goes on to discuss Kailua-Kona's modern attractions, most notably the food and dining scene. In addition to coffee, the Kona region produces a number of other crops, and the town holds several farmers' markets. For ready-made food, Kailua-Kona boasts a vast number of restaurants, eateries and food stands, which serve everything from traditional ethnic foods, to fusion cuisine influenced by Hawaii's multicultural background, to local favorites like Hawaiian-style malasadas and the ever-popular "shave ice."
Lastly, the article mentions Kailua-Kona's appeal to fans of water-based and extreme sports. Given its location, climate and terrain, Hawaii holds a natural appeal to thrill-seekers and people who enjoy exotic new sports, and Kailua-Kona has a vibrant extreme sports scene.
