The resort of Kailua Kona offers all of the beauty, relaxation and pleasure of traditional Hawaiian culture, as well as the allure of a modern tourist town.

The destination is divided into two very different sections. The first is Kailua, home to many luxury hotels and wide, welcoming beaches. The sweeping bay is one of Hawaii’s finest locations for scuba diving, offering the chance to meet exotic local residents like manta rays. It’s also a great place to take trips on outrigger canoes and to head out whale watching with expert marine guides. You can even take submarine tours of the coral reefs.

On land, Kailua Kona offers plenty for the family to enjoy. Kids and grown-ups can splash around as long as they like at the Kailua Park Complex, while the beach is fringed by bars and restaurants of all varieties.

A short distance uphill from the beach, visitors can enter another world by visiting Kona, the other half of the resort. Take tours of the cloud forest and taste the local speciality at one of the region’s coffee plantations. There are also historic buildings to tour such as the Hulihe’e Palace, as well as more modern attractions like one of Hawaii’s finest micro-breweries.

Nature lovers will be well-served by a trip to Kailua Kona as well. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is not far away, and offers plenty of hiking trails and spectacular views. Then there are other stunning landscapes like the black sand of the Waipi’o Valley, again, a short drive from Kailua Kona.

Best Time to Fly to Kailua-Kona, HI

Whenever you feel the need for sunshine! Well, almost any time. Hawaii is always warm, but there is a rainy season, which lasts roughly from November to March. But this is hardly a monsoon season, and there will be plenty of sunny days. However, Christmas can see crowds of tourists escaping their winter weather, so travel in spring for the best deals. Summer months between June and September are busy, as it is the peak travel season.

One of the most popular Hawaiian destinations is the city of Kailua Kona, situated on the Island of Hawaii or the Big Island. When you fly to this Hawaiian city on the central western coast of the Big Island, you will be landing at the Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport (KOA). If you plan to pick up a rental car when you land at KOA, exit arrivals at Baggage Claim Area A or B, cross the street, and go to the median. Here, you can catch a complimentary shuttle to the car rental agency where you made your reservation. Some of these agencies include Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Dollar, Alamo, Thrifty, Hertz, and National.

When you fly to Kailua Kona (KOA) from the continental US, you can find some direct flights from cities in the western United States. For instance, United, American, Delta, and Hawaiian Airlines operate direct flights from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to KOA. Southwest operates a direct flight from the Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) serving Las Vegas. Alaska Airlines operates direct flights to KOA from Seattle (SEA), Portland (PDX), San Jose, California (SJC), and San Diego (SAN).

Most flights to Kailua Koa from the eastern and midwest United States entail one or two connections. For instance, you can fly from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), serving New York City, to KOA aboard United with one stop in Denver (DEN) or aboard Alaska with one stop in Seattle (SEA). From Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), you can fly Alaska with one stop in Seattle (SEA), United with one stop in Los Angeles (LAX), or American with one stop and Phoenix (PHX). On these longer flights, consider paying a fee to add extra legroom in order to make an economy plane journey more comfortable.

  • What should I pack for a flight to Kailua Kona?

    When you arrive in Kailua Kona, you'll be enveloped in the laid-back Hawaiian vibe right away. So, when you pack, there is no need to bring excessively dressy clothes, unless you are going to Kailua Kona specifically for a formal social event, such as a wedding.

For that reason, pack a light jacket or sweatshirt and one pair of jeans or pants. Since you will no doubt be exploring the island, pack a small backpack that you can take on your daily adventures.

Or you could even take a Kona Submarine Tour - Atlantis Undersea Expedition. You will dive 100 feet down into the ocean in the largest recreational submarine in the world. To absorb some island history, you can visit Hulihee Palace, formerly a vacation home of Hawaiian royals and now a museum surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds.
