Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

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.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Wed): steep yourself in history at Puukohola National Historic Park and then kick back and relax at Mauna Kea Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: relax in the rural setting at The Vanillerie, fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then whizz through the canopy at Hawaii Forest and Trail.

For where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Kailua-Kona trip builder site.

Dallas to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Traveling from Dallas to Kailua-Kona, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit warmer evenings in Kailua-Kona when traveling from Dallas in May, with lows around 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Thu) early enough to travel to Lihue.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.

Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Step out of Lahaina with an excursion to Iao Valley in Wailuku--about 44 minutes away. Spend the 6th (Sun) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach.
