Finding Adventure in Hawaii

The Big Island is packed with sights to see and adventures to go on; it’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream!


So Much to Do, So Little Time

There’s a tourist book I saw at the airport that says there are 101 things to do in Hawaii. If you ask me, that’s an underestimate! The entertainment and activities here are inexhaustible. You can “Go Flumin'” through the old sugar plantation waterways or Humvee-ing in the rainforest, hike under a 500-foot waterfall or ride an ATV from the mountains to the sea. You can go rafting, ride horses, roast your own coffee, watch whales, surf, kayak, visit Waimea Town, tour an ancient peace temple, and, of course, shop till you drop.

Finding Adventure in Hawaii

Whatever part of the Big Island you choose to visit, you’re in for a unique and unforgettable experience. And with the number of things that’ll be left to do at the end of your stay, you may just have to start planning a return visit.

    I actually can’t put my feelings for Hawaii into words. It’s my favorite place in the world to go on vacation. the beach, the foods. oh especially the pineapples! I so love every little thing about Hawaii.

    Bruuuuh!!! i’m like sooooo wanting to surf them waves from ha-WA-I-I! thank’s for this heads up, will hook up with the crew and be on that island STAT! this legit awesomesauce!

  3. I love Hawaii, not for the beaches or the resorts. Having lived in San Diego the last 19 years… I can claim some of the finest beaches in La Jolla, etc. I love white pineapples smoothies and the plethora of edible fruits that grow all over like liquoi (sp?) and strawberry guava. I love that in particular, the BI is recreating itself constantly. I love the people and their strength and beauty. And how life moves slower than everywhere else. I love jumping off waterfalls into cool pools. I love being able to see fish that I have only previously seen in fish tanks. I love the frogs in Hilo when it rains. Hey, I might even love the roosters on Kauai, but that is probably a bit of a stretch. I am totally addicted.

    I am from Brazil. I just came back from Hawaii a week ago. It’s an amazing place. I went there for a wedding, it is was very beautiful. I am missing it already.

    The Filipino immigrant has ruined Hawaii they’re the majority now. It should be called Filipino island now.

    The most overrated place to travel to. Been there and wasn’t a fan.

    So beautiful!! A lot to see and do. culture, history, nature, entertainment, cuisine, and shopping. Can’t wait to visit Hawaii.

    OMG!! this place sounds so amazing. It’s my dream to be there one day. I am saving money for that. And hopefully, I will get there soon.

    I’m moving Hawaii some day.

  10. When I take vacations, I take into consideration the weather of that destination. One thing I love Hawaii is that they have the best weather (in the world, in my opinion). There’s something about the wind that whenever it touches your skin, you feel twice as relaxed and it feels twice as good to be walking on white sand, yellow sand, red sand and even green sand beaches in Hawaii.
