Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Kona Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Kona, HI discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Kona hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Along this stretch of coastline you'll find everything from coffee and sugar plantations to historic Hawaiian landmarks. It's a popular spot for both families and couples to enjoy calm waters, excellent food, and the exciting culture of Hawaii.

When to Visit Kona, HI

Hawaii has two main seasons: wet and dry. The wet season is during the winter from November to March. It rains at least once a day somewhere on the island, but the rain often only lasts for an hour or two. The dry season is during the summer from April to October.

Regardless of the season, it's warm almost every day in Kona, and the temperatures don't fluctuate very much throughout the year. It is relatively hot, with temperatures remaining around 85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and falling to about 75 degree Fahrenheit at night.

If you want to see the waterfalls and lush rainforests of Kona and The Big Island, the wet season is the greenest time of year. This also happens to be the high season on the island, so hotel prices are at their peak. Be sure to book your hotel well in advance if you want to take advantage of the affordable hotels or score the best room at one of the luxury estates.

Spring and fall are the quietest seasons in Hawaii. As the wet season comes to an end, you can still enjoy the lush rainforests and waterfalls while also taking advantage of low-season prices and quieter beaches. In autumn, the waterfalls will be at their smallest, but you'll get the best weather and the pick of all of the best hotels at discounted off-season rates.

Summer is not quite as busy as winter, but because winter brings school holidays in much of the world, the beaches and resorts fill up with families. It's a good time of year if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of tourists but still want to take advantage of some low-season prices. Just be sure to book well in advance for this time of year to ensure you get the best rates.

Kanaloa at Kona by Castle is a great luxury option for families or friends traveling together.

What to Do in Kona, HI

Kona is the outdoor activity capital of the Big Island. If you're looking for some fun family-friendly things to do during your trip, look no further.

A vacation in Kona isn't complete without a trip to some of the island's best beaches. The west coast of the island is blessed with lots of sunshine and relatively calm waters. Some of the best beaches near Kona are Kuki'o Beach, where you can see green sea turtles and lava rocks; Kiholo Bay, which is a great beach for swimming and snorkeling; and Kika'ua Point Beach, which is perfect for families because it's a sheltered lagoon with very calm water.

Another popular activity to take part in while you're visiting Kona is learning how to surf. The west coast of the Big Island is a really good place to get started because the waves aren't too big. If you're an experienced surfer, there are plenty of great places along the west coast where you can challenge yourself and catch a few big waves.

If you're visiting Kona between November and May, be sure to head out on a whale watching tour. Humpback whales spend their time around the island of Hawaii to raise their calves. If you're lucky, you'll spot both mothers and their babies.

To learn a little bit about the culture of Hawaii and enjoy the beautiful views of the coastline, head to Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park and take a walk along the one-mile trail. Be sure to ask at the entrance about what events are happening during your trip. The national park often hosts fun and educational events where you can learn more about the native people.

Whether you're looking for a simple and affordable place to rest your head during your trip to Kona or you want a luxury experience that you'll remember forever, there is a hotel to suit your needs in Kona.
