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.
Relax by the water at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Honaunau Bay. Attractions like Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay) and White Sand Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Pua Mau Place Arboretum & Botanical Garden (in Kawaihae) and Adventures in Paradise Kayak & Snorkel (in Captain Cook). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Big Island Divers, discover the deep blue sea with Kona Diving Company, take a memorable tour with Sunlight on Water, and enjoy the sand and surf at Makalawena/Pu'u Ali'i.

Discover how to plan a Kailua-Kona trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

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.
