The Big Island – Hawaii

I recently had a chance to explore the sights and attractions of Hawaii’s “Big Island”. The first thing on my agenda was to take a tour by Hawaii Forest & Trail. We drove along the Hamakua coast to Hilo, where we took in the marvelous sights and sounds of the local waterfalls. We then ventured into the Volcanoes National Park for a guided twilight Volcano tour. The experience of Kilauea at night is breathtaking. The combination of the lava overflowing into the ocean, the smell of the fresh volcanic activity and the hiss of the lava touching the water produced an amazingly unique experience. We were getting hungry and decided to stop for a break at the Café Ono. We enjoyed a delicious four-course meal and did a little shopping for souvenirs. The local artist’s creations were unique and filled with the native culture of Hawaii. We were staying at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, which is located on 62 oceanfront acres along the sunny Kohala Coast of Hawaii. This property definitely has no shortage of amenities or accommodations. Guests can golf, play tennis, swim with dolphins, or take a ride on the monorail system. Overall, whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a journey off the beaten path, you’ll discover it all on Hawaii’s Big Island of Adventure.
