Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Mon): identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, kick back and relax at Anaehoomalu, and then kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

To find ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Kailua-Kona trip itinerary website.

Richmond to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time is minus 5 hours. Traveling from Richmond in April, expect nights in Kailua-Kona to be warmer, around 72°F, while days are somewhat warmer, around 83°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 27th (Tue) to allow time for travel to Lahaina.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Here are some ideas for day two: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ka'anapali Beach.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Lahaina road trip planning site.

Getting from Kailua-Kona to Lahaina by flight takes about 4.5 hours. In April, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to travel to Honolulu.

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Fri): pause for some photo ops at Queen Liliuokalani Statue, explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument, and finally identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace and then kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To find where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, use the Honolulu tour planner.

You can fly from Lahaina to Honolulu in 3.5 hours. In April, daytime highs in Honolulu are 83°F, while nighttime lows are 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
