From your Kona Hawaii vacation rentals on the Big Island you'll likely have a direct view of the two massive mountains stationed on the island. Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are both capped in snow making a spectacular view from any point on the island. The larger of the two, Mauna Kea, is nearly 13,800 feet above sea level.

Tallest Mountain on Earth

This may not sound so impressive but did you know if the entire height of the mountain was measured it would actually stand nearly 32,000 feet high? Most of the mountain is under sea level. At 32,000 feet it would be the tallest mountain anywhere on earth.

Tourists book Kona Hawaii vacation rentals for more than just the fantastic view. Each October the Ironman triathlon is hosted on the Big Island. This race is comprised of a two and a half mile ocean swim, more than 100 miles of bike racing and a full 26 mile marathon. Contestants have only 17 hours to finish the race.
