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.
Relax by the water at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Attractions like Kahaluu Beach and White Sand Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Honaunau Bay (in Honaunau), Adventures in Paradise Kayak & Snorkel (in Captain Cook) and Pua Mau Place Arboretum & Botanical Garden (in Kawaihae). And it doesn't end there: take a tour by water with Big Island Divers, enjoy the sand and surf at Makalawena/Pu'u Ali'i, wander the streets of Kailua Pier, and stroll through Magic Sands.
