Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and then get outside with Hawaii Offshore. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 31st (Sat): experience rural life at Heavenly Hawaiian Kona Coffee Farm and then whizz through the canopy at Hawaii Forest and Trail.

For photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Kailua-Kona trip itinerary maker.

Los Angeles to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Kailua-Kona when traveling from Los Angeles in October, with lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Hilo.

America's Wettest City

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Explore Hilo's surroundings by going to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, Kilauea Iki Trailhead, &more) and Jagger Museum (in Volcano). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, browse the fresh offerings at Hilo Farmers Market, and whizz through the canopy at The Umauma Experience.

To find more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Hilo online trip itinerary builder.
