5 DAY ITINERARY – EXCITING THINGS TO DO ON THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII
Being the largest of the Hawaiian Islands there is a lot of ground to cover and a lot of exciting and adventurous activities to do. Many visit Hawaii Island on a day trip from Oahu. We recommend spending at least five days on the Big Island, even longer if you can!
Day 1: Hilo, Big Island
- Akaka Fall - Rainbow Fall - Lunch at Conscious Culture Cafe - Dinner – Hilo Bay Cafe
Day 2: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Big Island
Spend the whole day (and evening) exploring the Volcanoes National Park – one of our favorite things to do on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Day 3: Swim with the Manta Rays, Kona
Leave early in the morning so you have plenty of time to explore some of the sights on the drive from Volcanoes National Park to Kona.
Day 4: Snorkel at Kealakekua Bay and explore Kona Town
You can either switch this day around – go snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay and explore Kona town either in the morning or in the afternoon. Whatever works best for you.
Day 5: Waikoloa on the Kohala Coast
If you don’t choose to stay in Kona, you can head a little further north to Waikoloa Village. As we had moved so quickly before this, we decided to spend the day relaxing at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort.
