Kailua-Kona

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Hawi Center: Hawaii Cigar & Ukulele (in Hawi), Hilo (Basically Books, Akaka Falls State Park, &more) and Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa). There's much more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, stroll through Kahaluu Beach, and relax in the rural setting at Hala Tree.

The Big Island
Aptly nicknamed the "Big Island," the Island of Hawaii features sunny, black-sand beaches on the western side by Kona and a tropical rain forest on the eastern by Hilo. In between, the massive mountain Maunaloa covers half the island, and Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupts continuously. Twice as large as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, this big chunk of land in the Pacific manages to retain a laid-back atmosphere despite its immense popularity with tourists. Instead of spending your entire vacation at one of the island's luxurious tourist resorts, go on tours of this Pacific haven's coffee and macadamia nut plantations and working ranches, or explore its nature reserves and rugged trails.
