Here are a few of the very best ways to spend your time on the Big Island of Hawaii:
Visit a Volcano
There aren’t many places in the world where you can visit active volcanoes, but Hawaii is definitely one of them. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park in particular is known to have two incredible active volcanoes — Mauna Loa and Kilauea. Hopefully you’ll get the chance to witness bubbling molten earth, but there are also lava deserts, hot and steaming craters, ancient rainforests, and more to explore!
Mauna Kea, which directly translates to “White Mountain”, is also known as Mauna O Wakea, and is believed to be the sacred connection between the land and the heavens. This area has not only naturally beautiful earth, but has some of the best stargazing in the world. Head to the observatory for your chance to gaze into the heavens as you never have before.
Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park
Along the south coast of the big island is Kealakekua Bay, a popular spot famous for its diverse sea life. A visit here is one of your best shots at catching a glimpse of spinner dolphins, and even kayaking alongside next to them!
At the end of Highway 240, Waipi’o Valley cuts into the coastline. One of seven valleys on the windward side of the Kohala Mountains, Waipi’o is undeniably the most special — it is home to Hi’ilawe, the longest waterfall in the state, black-sand beaches, dramatic cliffs, emerald jungles, and more. You don’t have to take our word for it — put a visit to Waipi’o on the top of your list.
