The weather and culture are the different between the two sides…the west side (Kona) is the dry, the water is very calm, visibility is about 100 ft on a clear day, there’s great fishing and golf courses…east side (Hilo) is the wet side with rainbows, waterfalls, flowers, has less vegetation, and is where papayas and mangoes come from.
