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, Pololu Valley Lookout, Te 'E'a O Te Turama Hula Halau, and other attractions to your itinerary. Visit Honaunau Bay and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area for some beach relaxation. Take a break from the city and head to Adventures in Paradise Kayak & Snorkel and Kona Boys. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau) and Kealakekua Bay (in Captain Cook). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with Big Island Divers, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kahaluu Beach, take in the waterfront at Kailua Pier, and get engrossed in the history at Hulihe'e Palace.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 24th (Wed), get a taste of the local shopping with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and then get impressive views of Kīlauea.
