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 Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Escape the urban bustle at Volcano Art Center and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua-Kona: Hilo (Liliuokalani Gardens, Akaka Falls State Park, & more), Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae) and Jagger Museum (in Volcano). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mokuaikaua Church, take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea, and look for gifts at Waikoloa Beach Resort.
