The Weather in Kona

The weather in Kona is tropical with warm temperatures lasting throughout the year. The average low in the coldest month of January only reaches 66 degrees Fahrenheit, with average highs in the warmest month of August only reaching 88 degrees.

Things to Do in Kona

Kona is a tourist's paradise with beautiful beaches to relax in as you enjoy warm ocean breezes and beautiful sunsets. For those who want a more challenging time in Kona though, there's always the Ironman World Championship Triathlon in October.
