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've added Kīlauea, Sulphur Banks, Chain of Craters Rd, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Saddle Road and Pololu Valley Lookout. You'll get in some beach time at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Samuel M. Spencer Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua-Kona: 49 Black Sand Beach (in Waikoloa), Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) and Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View). And it doesn't end there: admire the verdant scenery at Waipio Valley, walk around Maka'eo Walking Path, admire the majestic nature at Kahalu'u Beach Park, and get outside with Aloha Rail Company.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Dole Plantation. Step off the beaten path and head to Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Your inner history buff will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and Queen Emma Summer Palace. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, don't miss a visit to Ko Olina Lagoons, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and hike along Diamond Head State Monument.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Honolulu using our trip planner.
