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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Hawai'i Surf and Kayak, Waikoloa Coast Divers and Kohala Zipline. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Mauna Kea Beach. Get outdoors at Swim with Dolphins and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Take a break from Kailua-Kona with a short trip to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park in Honaunau, about 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, relax in the rural setting at Greenwell Farms, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mokuaikaua Church, and take some stellar pictures from Pololu Valley Lookout.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Visiting Akaka Falls State Park and Rainbow Falls will get you outdoors. Explore Volcano's surroundings by going to Hilo (Panaewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens & Liliuokalani Gardens), Punalu‘U Beach (in Pahala) and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou). There's still lots to do: trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), get to know the fascinating history of Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Pu'u Huluhulu trail.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Volcano vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Traveling by car from Kailua-Kona to Volcano takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Kailua-Kona in June since evenings lows in Volcano dip to 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
