It’s Ironman week here in Kona and to say that town is busy seems to be an understatement. Triathletes are everywhere, either riding their bikes along Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, sprinting through Ali’i Drive or swimming at the Kona Pier. Just a few days remain until 2000+ athletes compete in what is considered one of the World’s most challenging races- a 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run through the most grueling conditions. For visitors coming to cheer on friends and family members, finding a place to stay can be a challenge! We’ve compiled a list of places to stay if you want to be near all the action for next year (Oct 7, 2017). Most of these places are located along Ali’i Drive where the race starts and ends or near Ali’i Drive. Book early to secure your spot!
