Gold dust day geckos are really common on the Kona coast.

Because it's out during the day, it's almost certain to be a day gecko. It also seems to be green, which makes it day gecko. Gold dust day geckos are common, but several other species of Phelsuma have been introduced as well, including the orange-spotted day gecko. A really close look, and I don't see any spots, or lateral lines, or anything, so an ID beyond that, I think would be guessing.
