Opihihale is located on the Kona Coast (western side) of The Big Island, just south of the Kailua-Kona region. This tranquil area lies in the Big Island's more secluded countryside, with none of the hustle and bustle of the tourist resorts, yet it's only minutes to the beach. The nearby Kailua-Kona coast is the center for a lot of activities, such as golf, parasailing, surfing, fishing and whale watching, swimming with the dolphins, windsurfing and snorkeling. The town of Kailua-Kona, along the Kailua Bay is known for its' deep-sea fishing excursions, sunset bay cruises and even submarine excursions. Also, the warm water and lack of currents along the Bay make it very good for swimming. Other things to do in the Opihihale area include visiting historical sights such as the grounds of King Kamehameha's temple, and the Mokuaikaua Church, built in the year 1830. The town of Captain Cook, where the infamous Captain was killed, is also near Opihihale. To enjoy some of the world's most breathtaking scenery and the finest in diving, surfing, fishing and other outdoor sports, yet avoid the crowds; consider Opihihale for your Big Island vacation.

Opihihale Weather & Climate

Hawaii has a subtropical climate with only two seasons - summer, between May and October, and winter, between October and April. The Big Island is the largest and youngest of the Hawaiian Islands, and its' climate varies only in amount of rainfall, not in temperatures. The South Kona Coast region near Kealakekua Bay is on the Big Island's dry west side. The most influencing factor is orographic - caused by the mountains. The dry leeward coast of The Big Island, which is protected from clouds by the 13,600-foot summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, receives less than 30 inches of rain per year - in comparison to the east windward coast which receives an average of 130 inches. During summer, it is not uncommon for daytime skies to remain clear blue for weeks on end.
