Kailua-Kona — 4 nights

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.
Papakōlea Green Sand Beach has been added to your itinerary. Step out of Kailua-Kona to go to Hilo and see Liliuokalani Gardens, which is approximately 1h 55 min away.

Plan a Kailua-Kona trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Honolulu — 6 nights

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Arizona Memorial and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip builder site.

Getting from Kailua-Kona to Honolulu by flight takes about 2.5 hours. In September in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 76°F at night. You will have some time to spend on the 12th (Mon) before leaving for home.

The Big Island
Aptly nicknamed the "Big Island," the Island of Hawaii features sunny, black-sand beaches on the western side by Kona and a tropical rain forest on the eastern by Hilo. In between, the massive mountain Maunaloa covers half the island, and Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupts continuously. Twice as large as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, this big chunk of land in the Pacific manages to retain a laid-back atmosphere despite its immense popularity with tourists. Instead of spending your entire vacation at one of the island's luxurious tourist resorts, go on tours of this Pacific haven's coffee and macadamia nut plantations and working ranches, or explore its nature reserves and rugged trails.
