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.
Popular historic sites such as Kealakekua Bay and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park are in your itinerary. Visiting Greenwell Farms and Honaunau Bay will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), relax in the rural setting at Kona Joe Coffee, look for gifts at The Cindy Coats Gallery, and get engrossed in the history at H.N. Greenwell Store Museum.

For ratings and more tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona sightseeing planner.

Sydney, Australia to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 15-hour flight. Traveling from Sydney to Kailua-Kona, you'll gain 20 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Sydney in April; daily highs in Kailua-Kona reach 33°C and lows reach 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Honolulu.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Let the collections at U.S. Army Museum of Hawaii and Iolani Palace capture your imagination. Step off the beaten path and head to Shark Diving and Waimea Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kalapawai Market). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park, and admire all the interesting features of Makapu'u Point.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip planner.

Getting from Kailua-Kona to Honolulu by flight takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus and flight. In April in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 25°C at night. On the 2nd (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
