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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kealakekua Bay and Kona Coffee Living History Farm. Get outdoors at Kula Kai Caverns and Carlsmith Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Akaka Falls State Park (in Hilo), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Sulphur Banks & Kīlauea) and Captain Cook (The Painted Church & The Captain Cook Monument). The adventure continues: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, take in the exciting artwork at Hawaii Cigar & Ukulele, don't miss a visit to Kipuka Pu’u Huluhulu, and take some stellar pictures from Pololu Valley Lookout.
