Our family of 5 (3 older teenage daughters with lots of energy) looking to explore this Island.
Here are some of our ideas:
Akaka Falls State Park, Volcano National Park , Punaalu Beach, Hamakua Coast, Mauna Loa Hawaii national Park, Kaumana Caves Park Panaewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens, a good Zip Line? Rainbow Falls, Sea Cave Tours, Kealakekua Bay, Kilauea Kula Kai Caverns, Nature Hawaiian Lava, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gargen, Pe’epe’e Falls, Papakolee Beach, Kalapana Pololu Valley Lookout, Hapuna Beach, Waipi’o Valley chain of craters,
This is a combination of everyones lists.. we would love your input as to whether each place is worth a visit or if you can recommend something else..
Also, at this time we are still looking to book our place to stay, would Pahoa be a bad choice?
I know that Kona area has the best beaches but I can't get a good answer as to whether we can swim on the HIlo/Pahoa side?
We will also be visiting Oahu for 3 days after leaving Hawaii Island.
Thank you for any help you can offer..
