Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.


Unsafe behavior may be reported to the DLNR at (808) 643-3567 or the COVID Hotline at (808) 935-0031.

We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through August, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

First, I'd like to wish Shirley a very happy (belated) birthday! Hope you have many more.

I was wondering, with all the covid stuff going on, are the protesters still camping along the road to the observatories on Mauna Kea? We had considered driving the Saddle Road the last time we were there (Sept, 2019) but did not want to get caught in the middle of anything. We are hoping to make a return visit in the fall of 2021. Hope things are back to normal by then.
