Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii — 5 nights

Heart of the Kona Coast

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 Mauna Kea, Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, Punalu‘U Beach, and other attractions to your itinerary. Explore hidden gems such as Magic Sands and Kahaluu Bay. Change things up with a short trip to Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area in Puako (about 48 minutes away).

Before you visit Kailua-Kona, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Dallas to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Dallas in December; daily highs in Kailua-Kona reach 82°F and lows reach 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) early enough to fly to Lahaina.

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.
