Kailua-Kona

4.5
Swim with Dolphins · Scuba & Snorkeling · Mountains
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. Usually called simply Kona, the town was once Hawaiian royalty's favorite retreat. Its near-perfect weather has made it a popular vacation destination for anglers, snorkelers, boaters, and cavers from around the world. With a permanent population of about 10,000 people, Kona sits just 17 km (11 mi) from the island's major airport and is the center of commerce and tourism on the Island of Hawaii's western coast.
