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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Mokuaikaua Church. We've included these beaches for you: Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kailua-Kona: Hilo (Liliuokalani Gardens, Rainbow Falls, & more), Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae) and Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu). The adventure continues: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, look for gifts at Hilo Hatties, take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea, and identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm.
