Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

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 your second day here, steep yourself in history at Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, explore the striking landscape of Puukohola National Historic Park, and then admire the majestic nature at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Kailua-Kona day trip planner.

San Francisco to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from San Francisco to Kailua-Kona due to the time zone difference. Traveling from San Francisco in February, you will find days in Kailua-Kona are somewhat warmer (81°F), and nights are much warmer (69°F). Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Honolulu.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get outdoors at Diamond Head State Monument and Kailua Beach Park. You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). The adventure continues: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and kick back and relax at Kuhio Beach.
