Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

— 8 nights

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Kona Historical Society. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Kahaluu Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua-Kona: Kealakekua Bay (in Captain Cook) and Waikoloa Beach Resort (in Waikoloa). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get a taste of the local shopping with Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mauna Kea.

Find out how to plan Kailua-Kona trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

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.
