Kailua-Kona

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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park and Mauna Kea. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kailua-Kona: Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako) and Akaka Falls State Park (in Hilo). There's more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Kailua-Kona travel planning site.

San Diego to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from San Diego to Kailua-Kona. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from San Diego in May: high temperatures in Kailua-Kona hover around °F and lows are around °F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Hana.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
We've included these beaches for you: Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Wailea (Makena Beach & Maluaka Beach), Wailuku (Iao Valley, Maui Tropical Plantation, &more) and Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Kalepolepo Beach Park, get engrossed in the history at Baldwin Home Museum, and stroll around Lahaina Banyan Court.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, use the Lahaina road trip site.

Traveling by car from Hana to Lahaina takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or do a combination of car and bus. When traveling from Hana in May, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Lahaina: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
