Hawaii Island Relaxation

Where else can you take a leisurely stroll on an active volcano? Whether it’s getting back to nature on a hike in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park or taking a dip at Hapuna Beach, Hawaii Island has its own unique activities and environments that will help you slow down and relax.

Spend the day window-shopping and sightseeing in Historic Kailua Village (Kailua-Kona), the coffee and art town of Holualoa or beautiful Hawi. Take a road trip along the Hamakua Heritage Corridor then wander the historic streets of Downtown Hilo. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, set up a tee time at a spectacular golf course on the Kohala Coast then hit the spa in one of the island’s luxurious resorts. Wherever you go, you’ll notice the locals here are incredibly laid back. A few days on Hawaii Island and you’ll see why the feeling is contagious.
