Hot lava and stargazing adventures sit are just some of the things you’ll discover.
Things to do on the Big Island include exploring the underwater world in a glass-bottom boat, watching hot lava explode, and hiking to a mountain waterfall. The Big Island is also known for its big game fishing and ocean sunset cruises.
Volcanoes National Park
Watch hot lava explode as it pours into the sea from Kilauea Volcano. Volcanoes National Park includes a visitor center that features a free film staring Pele, Hawaii’s goddess of fire.
The Big Island is known for its big game fishing with the lucky ones pulling in a “grander,” a Pacific blue marlin weighing more than 1,000 pounds!
Sunset Dinner Cruise
Ocean cruises take in the sunset while you enjoy a Hawaiian luau and look for humpback whales.
In Hilo, you can visit the Pacific Tsunami Museum and then stop by the Big Island Candies to see how they make their famous macadamia nut shortbread cookies.
Take a drive along the beautiful Hamakua Coast, down into the awesome Waipio Valley,
