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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Kealakekua Bay. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kailua-Kona: Big Island Bees (in Captain Cook), Hilo (Rainbow Falls & Akaka Falls State Park) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea Summit, relax in the rural setting at Hula Daddy Kona Coffee, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona tour planner.

In October in Kailua-Kona, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 74°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 20th (Fri) to allow time for travel back home.
