Are you the kind of person that has to have a stunning view with your meal in Hawaii? We have 7 of the best views you can ask for in West Hawaii! Join us a we take you from Kealekekua in South Kona to the famous Coffee Shack, to beachside Magic’s Grille in Kona, up the Kohala Coast to the Mauna Lani Resort area to the Canoe House, Halani and Napua and Waikoloa Resort’s well known Lava Lava Beach Club, back down to Kona for sunset in downtown at Papa Kona’s and Huggo’s on the Rocks.
Join us at the 365Kona picnic table as we discuss why each one made our list. Get your popcorn and plastic monkey and let’s check out the views!

This was one of the most fun videos we have created to date in terms of finding a great theme and going out and shooting it all in one day and seeing the beauty of the island.
A few fun things:
-The co-owner of Magic’s Grill met us before they opened and set up a table for us and allowed us to drone from the restaurant.
-We met the Sales Manager at the Canoe House and he, too, opened up the restaurant with no one there to allow for some nice video and photos.
-I forgot how fun it was to drink a MaiTai at sunset, listen to music and wiggle my feet in the sand like we used to do when so many of our friends would come and visit.
