Check out these books by the Authors of konaLiving.com




The Kona area of the island of Hawaii is a huge triange, extending from Kukio Bay just south of Waikoloa Village Road, inland to the summit of Mauna Loa, down to Manuka Bay just north of the Manuka State Park, encompassing the districts of South Kona and North Kona. Kona means "Leeward" in Hawaiian. The leeward side of Hawaii island is out of the path of the trade winds that blow from the northeast to the southwest. The trade winds bring rain and humid air to the windward side of the island while the leeward side has sunny days with less rain.
