This shopping area was like a small outdoor mall. There were many gift shops and restaurants. It was very touristy so souvenirs weren't cheap. But it was fun to browse around and people watching.

If you want to spend some time shopping without driving around from place to place, this is the place to go. Good assortment of souvenirs, clothing, goodies, and art.

We went to the shopping village a few times in the two weeks we spent in Kona. It is located along the waterfront on Alii Drive in the heart of downtown. The layout of the mall made it feel like being on a boardwalk. This...More

A good walkable shopping area. Part of it was originally a hotel that guests would stay after getting off a cruise or steam ship. Has a wide variety of shops and galleries. Live music some evenings. Nice coffee shop and ice cream as well.

With three daughters and two grand kids this was the place to shop for everything the wife wanted. Specialty shops and adventure tours included. Lunch with the ocean view was nice, cold beverage while the wife shopped was an added bonus.
