Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

On the 6th (Thu), experience rural life at The Vanillerie, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mokuaikaua Church, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Kahaluu Beach.

Big Pineapple

The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
