This village is full of places to shop including apparal, food, coffee, and hawaiian handmade goods! There is a great variety of shopping at this location. We were able to get some wonderful coffee, and some apparal! :) The shops are all pretty close together but there is some walking distance to go to some.

Lots of shops including galleries, clothing, gifts, coffee, souvenirs etc all walkable. Primary building use to be the first hotel in Kona where steamships brought tourists.

It is very much designed for tourists and quite interesting but the shops do not provide a whole lot of interesting shopping. Many of the shops were fairly tacky selling junk, with a few exceptions. Could be vastly better.

Went by car with my wife. Shops mainly for cruise boats. Much of the same, and a limited selection. With Walmart near by, this area is nice for a walk.

Nice little area but prices are high and not all stores open same hours so hit or miss. Everyone was friendly but needs some maintenance.

I never thought I would end up going to Hawaii handicapped but a quick fall and the rest is history. Our hotel concierge said Kona's shops would be a good place to go for the day and that it would be easy to get around. Well, it is not. Stairs, uneven pavement etc. so although they do have a lot...

The small alleyway used to be crammed with little stores, but decline has set in and dealt this place a blow.A lot of places are up for lease and staying empty. There are still numerous stalls open that peddle beach wear, trinkets, touristy souvenirs, and the Kona Inn restaurant is still going. You can also have a coffee, buy pineapples(... More

I go annually to Kailua Kona, 14 years now for Ironman Triathlons. Shopping browsing here is a must. Historically, this was the first hotel where cruise ships brought visitors to stay in Kona according to a Hawaii magazine article I read. Large variety of shops and galleries; some with lovely views of the bay.

Fantastic! From a wonderful farmers market with beautiful jewelry to great places for coffee or eats, downtown Kona was one of my favorite places on my trip. It had great little shops, fantastic food and I found my favorite coffee shop there. I would make this a must see on your trip if you are within a 10 mile radius.

Plenty of lil shops and services to check out. Parking is sad but this is because this lil mall hugs the shoreline so you have to park up the hill a bit. There are public free spots if you poke around. Right next to the library for one! The Kona Inn Restaraunt is a "must" since it reminds a bit... More
