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.
For shopping fun, head to Big Island Bees or Waikoloa Beach Resort. Kealakekua Bay and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park will appeal to history buffs. Explore Kailua-Kona's surroundings by going to Honaunau (Manini Kapahukapu Beach & Honaunau Bay), Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at White Sand Beach, fulfill a lifelong dream with My Kona Adventures, see Kona Boys, and get a taste of the local shopping with Ho'oulu Community Farmers Market.
