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.
Head to Volcano Art Center and Big Island Beesfor some retail therapy. Visiting Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Akaka Falls State Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau), Hilo (Hilo Farmers Market & Rainbow Falls) and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku) & Kilauea Iki Trailhead). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, kick back and relax at Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, get engrossed in the history at H.N. Greenwell Store Museum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mauna Kea.

To see where to stay, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona route planner .

In May, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 73°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
