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.
Shop till you drop at Kona Wine Market and Island Naturals Market and Deli Kailua Kona. Get a sense of the local culture at Parker Ranch and Kailua Pier. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako) and Honaunau Bay (in Honaunau). There's still lots to do: get a taste of local nightlife at Neptune Charlies Ocean Safaris, kick back and relax at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), see Kona Boys, and fulfill a lifelong dream with Big Island Divers.

To plan Kailua-Kona vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New York City to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Kailua-Kona due to the time zone difference. In October, Kailua-Kona is somewhat warmer than New York City - with highs of 86°F and lows of 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can go by car to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 1st (Sun), view the masterpieces at Volcano Art Center Gallery, then examine the collection at Jagger Museum, and then get impressive views of Kīlauea.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Volcano online itinerary planner .

You can drive from Kailua-Kona to Volcano in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Kailua-Kona in October, expect little chillier with lows of 70°F in Volcano. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
