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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kilauea Iki Trailhead (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park), Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau) and Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Akaka Falls State Park, & more). And it doesn't end there: get interesting insight from Tours, take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and take some stellar pictures from Waipio Valley Lookout.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona tour planner.

Washington DC to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of subway, bus, and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Washington DC to Kailua-Kona due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Washington DC in August, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 77°F in Kailua-Kona. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
