Kailua-Kona
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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Mauna Kea as well as Punaluu Black Sand Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at White Sand Beach and Kahaluu Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and The Captain Cook Monument. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako), Waikoloa Beach Resort (in Waikoloa) and Honaunau (Honaunau Bay & Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park). There's more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience and relax in the rural setting at Kona Joe Coffee.
