Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

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): see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour and then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Kailua-Kona road trip planner .

Auckland, New Zealand to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. Traveling from Auckland to Kailua-Kona, you'll gain 22 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Auckland in August, things will get much warmer in Kailua-Kona: highs are around 36°C and lows about 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of the city life by going to Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head State Monument. For shopping fun, head to Polynesian Cultural Center or Crack Seed Store. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manoa Falls, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and browse the exhibits of USS Arizona Memorial.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary builder app .

You can fly from Kailua-Kona to Honolulu in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and flight. In August, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. On the 4th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
