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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Liliuokalani Gardens, & more), Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako). And it doesn't end there: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, stroll through Mauna Kea Beach, relax in the rural setting at Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, and kick back and relax at PapakĊlea Green Sand Beach.

To see where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona trip tool .

In November, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
