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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Kealakekua Bay and Kailua Pier. Family-friendly places like Honaunau Bay and White Sand Beach will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Waikoloa (Dolphin Quest & Waikoloa Beach Resort) and Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa). Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. And it doesn't end there: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, experience rural life at Kona Joe Coffee, tour the pleasant surroundings at Magic Sands, and see Kona Boys.

Kick off your visit on the 24th (Wed): take in nature's colorful creations at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea, and then see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.
