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.
Captain Zodiac Raft Expeditions has been added to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Swim with Dolphins and Scuba & Snorkeling. Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Mokuaikaua Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Captain Cook (Big Island Bees & Kealakekua Bay), Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu) and Honaunau Bay (in Honaunau). Spend the 26th (Tue) exploring nature at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. There's lots more to do: cast your line with a fishing tour, kick back and relax at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), contemplate the geological forces at Hualalai, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

For more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Kailua-Kona road trip planner.

Hong Kong, China to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 18 hours traveling from Hong Kong to Kailua-Kona. In July, Kailua-Kona is little chillier than Hong Kong - with highs of 35°C and lows of 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to drive to Waimea.

Explore Waimea's surroundings by going to Waikoloa (Queens' Market Place, Anaehoomalu, &more), Statue "King Kamehameha" (in Kapaau) and Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Mauna Kea Beach, hike along Waipio Na'alapa Trail, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Puako Petroglyphs.

Volcano

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs and Volcano Art Center Gallery. Get outdoors at Akaka Falls State Park and Punalu‘U Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Volcano: Hilo (Panaewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens, Hilo Farmers Market, &more), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Holei Sea Arch & Kalapana) and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Devastation Trail, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, hike along Pu'u Huluhulu trail, and learn about winemaking at Volcano Winery.

Getting from Waimea to Volcano by car takes about 2 hours. Other options: take a bus. While traveling from Waimea, expect a bit warmer days and warmer nights in Volcano, ranging from highs of 34°C to lows of 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
