Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

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.
On the 1st (Fri), kick back and relax at Anaehoomalu and then enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Honaunau Bay, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, then get engrossed in the history at H.N. Greenwell Store Museum, and finally cast your line with a fishing tour.

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.
