Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the primary hub serving the greater Los Angeles area. LAX provides several parking lots for those driving to the airport via World Way North. Public ground transportation is also available for those who don’t want to incur extended parking fees. These include buses, light rail and the LAX FlyAway shuttle.
Nonstop flights to Kona International Airport (KOA) take six hours, but including a layover will bump that up to eight hours or more. Once in Kona, Hawaii, take a taxi, shuttle or the limited bus service to your hotel.
Visitors to Kona undoubtedly want to get close to nature, so tour the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden, the Big Island Bees beekeeping museum and the Kilauea Volcano via Big Island Air.
Go snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay and explore sea caves for a chance to spot dolphins. It’s also worth the drive to Mauna Kea Summit for the panoramic view of Kailua Kona.
Kailua Kona is on the "dry side" of the Big Island. That means you can expect lots of sunshine with very little rain, especially in summer. Year-round, temperatures average between 70 and 80 degrees with January being the coolest month and August the warmest.
