This One Street In Hawaii Has Every Type Of Restaurant You Can Imagine
From upscale and oceanfront seafood restaurants to food trucks parked in the middle of nowhere, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible restaurants. And nowhere will you find more incredible and diverse restaurants than on Kailua-Kona’s Ali’i Drive.
Before we dive in, let’s talk about the amazing city that is Kailua-Kona: Located along Hawaii Island’s scenic Kona coast, this historic seaside village is full of natural beauty, royal history, and plenty of charm. Established by King Kamehameha I to be the seat of his government when he was the chief of Mona before he consolidated rule of the island chain. The historic town later became the capital of a newly unified kingdom, before it moved to Lahaina, and later, Honolulu.
