Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii — 2 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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Mon): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Kahaluu Beach, then admire all the interesting features of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, and finally get engrossed in the history at H.N. Greenwell Store Museum. On the next day, look for all kinds of wild species at Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary and then kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii — 1 night

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Wed): look for all kinds of wild species at Devastation Trail, shop like a local with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then take in nature's colorful creations at Volcano Garden Arts, and finally get a dose of the wild on Epic Lava Tours.

To find maps, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Volcano trip planner.

Honolulu, Oahu — 3 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.
You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, explore the gorgeous colors at Pele's Chair, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To see more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary app.

Traveling by flight from Volcano to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in November, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
