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.
Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu), Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Liliuokalani Gardens, & more) and Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View). And it doesn't end there: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, stroll through Mauna Kea Beach, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Japan, the closest major airport is Kahului Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach 35°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
