We have a trip booked next year to big island staying near waikoloa village time share. Since it is a 2 to 3 hour drive, I want to plan accordingly to see the "must do" on hilo/volcano side of the island. Seeing lava is a definite must! We have 7 nights on the big island, but don't want to miss out. Sunset seems to come so early there.. should we plan on making sight seeing stops on the way or plan on spending our whole day there... we will be traveling back to our resort at the end of the day.. thanks!
