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.

The adventure continues: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, kick back and relax at Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, play a few rounds at Mauna Lani Resort , and identify plant and animal life at Kona Cloud Forest.
