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.
Keep things going the next day: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, thenstop by Big Island Bees, and then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To see where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Kailua-Kona online trip itinerary planner.

Jacksonville to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Jacksonville to Kailua-Kona due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Jacksonville in June, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Kailua-Kona: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can drive to Hilo.
