A special place to watch the beautiful sunsets is right behind the Kona Inn Restaurant, located in the Kona Inn Shopping Village on Ali'i Drive in downtown Kailua-Kona. There is a wide grassy area adjacent the sea wall, intermingled with palm trees. From here, you have a splendid view of the Kailua Pier, the bobbing boats and rolling waves.
Another wonderful place to view the Kona sunsets is at Anaehoomalu Bay. The edge of this beach is lined with tall palm trees that form an impressive backdrop to the sunset. Also, there is a large pond just to the east of the beach across which you can watch the sunset glimmering off of the still water. The view is surreal.

Photo Tip: Remember, to take the best sunset photos, disable the flash on your camera - that way you will best capture the beautiful natural lighting of the scene. Using a tripod will help significantly as well, allowing you to minimize camera movement in a low-lighting situation. Check out the Sunset Cruises on the island of Hawai'i.
These sunset photos were taken on the Big Island of Hawaii.
