Tropical Travle #1
Whether you are looking to come face-to-face with kaleidoscopic sand or molten lava, it will not be hard for you to find a way to have some fun on the Big Island. Big Island is the land of sparkling waterfalls, fiery volcanoes, snowcapped mountains, black-lava deserts, alpine meadows, tropical rainforests, glacial lakes, and miles of beautiful beaches.
In addition to all those popular beaches and hiking spots in Hawaii, there are also some nice shopping places there as well. And now, here are some great things that you can do in Hawaii.
If you are going to visit the Kaunaoa Beach, make sure to come early in the morning. The reason why you need to come early in the morning is because Kaunaoa Beach is a very popular place, which means that there may not be any parking spots available for your car if you come later.
When you think about the Kaunaoa Beach, you simply have to think about snorkeling because it is one of the most popular things there. Two more things that are very popular there are a pickup volleyball game and body boarding.
Waipio Valley has a very interesting history. About 10000 people once lived in Waipio Valley. Waipio Valley is also known as The Valley of the Kings, and the reason why is because it was once the home of many Hawaiian rulers, such as Kamehameha the Great. In general, the Waipio Valley is a nice place to visit.
Hilo Farmer’s Market
Every week, many people come to downtown Hilo to sell crafts, seafood and many other things. Actually, there might not be a better place on the Big Island to shop that the Hilo Farmer’s Market, and this is something that many travelers and guide books agree on. Hilo Farmer’s Market is known for selling almost anything that you can imagine – from bananas and pineapples to bongo drums and jaboticaba fruit.
And just like when going to the Kaunaoa Beach, the best option would be to come early in the morning. You can find the Hilo Farmer’s Market on the corner of Kamehameha Avenue and Mamo Street. It is open every single day, but some vendors only show up two days a week – on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Akaka Falls State Park
This is one place in Hawaii that you simply have to visit. Akaka Falls State Park is open every single day and it only costs $5 per car and $1 per pedestrian.
