Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu), Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako). There's still lots to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, explore the striking landscape of Puukohola National Historic Park, stroll through Mauna Kea Beach, and immerse yourself in nature at Lapakahi State Historical Park.
