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.
Explore Kailua-Kona's surroundings by going to Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Liliuokalani Gardens, & more), Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View) and Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu). There's lots more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, take a memorable drive along Saddle Road, take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea, and kick back and relax at Mauna Kea Beach.

For maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona trip app .

If you are flying in from Japan, the closest major airport is Kahului Airport. In October in Kailua-Kona, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
