Kailua-Kona

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kailua-Kona: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, Kilauea Iki Trailhead, & more), Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Liliuokalani Gardens, & more) and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou). Next up on the itinerary: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, cruise along Saddle Road, contemplate the long history of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Kahului Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
