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.
Get outdoors at Laupahoehoe Beach Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. We've included these beaches for you: Carlsmith Beach Park and Honaunau Bay. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Waipio Valley Lookout (in Honokaa), Steam Vents (in Pahoa) and Liliuokalani Gardens (in Hilo). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Kahalu'u Beach Park, appreciate the views at Pololu Valley Lookout, contemplate the long history of The Painted Church, and trek along Sulphur Banks.
