Return Visit to Hawaii’s Big Island

Double Lines

With so much beauty to discover, so many historic sites to explore and so many adventures to experience, a return visit to Hawaii’s Big Island is inevitable. Now that you’ve had a taste of what the Big Island has to offer, explore the island at a more leisurely pace or see regions you weren’t able to see before.

The first place to start is not on land, but in the water. Whether it’s diving with manta rays, going on a whale watching tour, taking a sunset cruise or going on a snorkelling expedition, you’ll find some of the Big Island’s biggest surprises out at sea. And while you may have already seen lava meet the sea at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, don’t forget to look towards the heavens atop Maunakea for unparalleled stargazing.

Explore the small towns of the Big Island and you’re bound to discover treasures in the art and coffee village of Holualoa, Honokaa Town on the Hamakua Coast, and peaceful Hawi in North Kohala. The Pololu Valley Overlook just beyond Hawi and the Waipio Valley Overlook just past Honokaa are worth the trip alone.

And while having extra time to indulge in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, golf and wellness and relaxation treatments in the Big Island’s best resorts is welcome, a continued exploration of the history and culture of Hawaii can be even more rewarding. Go on a hike and discover amazing petroglyphs on the Kohala Coast. See a hula competition or celebrate with locals at a cultural event or festival. Or tour the amazing art galleries and museums of Hawaii’s Big Island to get an even deeper insight into Hawaii’s heritage. On an island this size, there won’t be time to do it all. But with an active volcano still changing the landscape, all this and more will be waiting for you on your next trip back to the Big Island.
