Waikoloa, Hawaii

Waikoloa is located towards the northern end of the Big Island's west coast. It's about 20 miles (25 minutes by car) north of Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA). It's a man made oasis that would otherwise be a desolate stretch of old lava rock.

This is very much a resort town that's full of restaurants, shops, golf courses, and luxury lodging. Speaking of lodging, Waikoloa is also home to the massive mega-resort that is Hilton Waikoloa Village. Technically, the parts along the ocean are in an area called Puako while the inland parts are Waikoloa. But really, this whole area is commonly known as Waikoloa Village.
