Honokohau Marina and Beach at the Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K


If you have a few hours to spend before you go to the airport, there is a beach (part of the state park) you can access through the Honokohau Marina that is also a green sea turtle preservation area. You can walk and look at the turtles that have come up onto the beach, which is actually much more exciting than it may sound like! Make sure you keep your distance, and don’t touch them. It is also a good place to relax at the beach or some nearby small restaurants in the Marina.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Plantation – Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K


We bought some mountain apples and lychees at a local farmer’s market in the Big Island of Hawaii. We also went to a coffee plantation where we saw the lychee trees, banana tree, avocado trees and coffee trees. We also learned about coffee, from how the coffee trees grow to how the beans are processed, and what makes Kona coffee so special

Craters, Rainbow Falls & Painted Church – Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K

There are some minor attractions on the Big Island of Hawaii that are not are as glamorous as others. If you want a quick preview if you are considering stopping by, or if you have already been to Hawaii and missed these for whatever reason, here is a quick glimpse.

There are many craters on the Chain of Craters road, the 1974 Lava Flow field, Puhimau Crater Pullout, Lua Manu Crater Pullout, Ko’oko’olau Crater, Hi’iaka Crater Basin. The Rainbow Falls is in Wailuku River State Park. The Painted Church was erected in 1899 by Father John Velghe. Without any professional training and using house paint on ordinary wood he beautified the church with his paintings.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Learn Hawaiian Place Names in 5 minutes-Big Island, Hawaii

In Hawaii English is spoken, but one encounters quite a few words in Hawaiian, especially place names. So the only problem I had was how to say the names of the places. They all looked and sounded practically the same to me. For each island, I found an authentic local person to teach me how to say the names of the major attractions. This is only a subset of the words, if you don’t find the names you are looking for, after watching this video, I am sure you can derive it. This is because the language has only 13 letters with 5 vowels and 8 consonants.

This video is for the Big island. For Kauai Island, you may prefer this video:

Four Mile Scenic Drive (Route) -On Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K


A lot of people are saying this 4 mile scenic drive on the Hāmākua Coast is a must do drive. Well, if did not have the time or for whatever the reason you missed the drive, here is the virtual drive for your enjoyment. We recommend you driving there yourself because the video does not present nor justify the beauty of the route (it may seem to be boring), however if you never been there here is the video.
The road twists and snakes through a lush tropical rain forest lined with streams. Several stops allow for breathtaking views of the ocean and coast. You will be in and among a wide variety of trees.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Heiau-Pololu Valley Lookout-King Kamehameha Statue-On Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K


This video shows the Puukohola Heiau, the Pololu Valley Lookout and the king Kamehameha Statue. This National Historic Site is home to one of the largest restored heiau (temple) in Hawaii and is part of the National Park System. Heiau were sacred places of worship for Native Hawaiians, and Puukohola Heiau was a site built to fulfill a historic prophecy.

There is limited parking at the Pololu valley lookout, just park along the road as you come to the overlook. A great view from up top, but don’t miss the steep hike down into the valley. The ocean is magnificent at the bottom. You will miss the King Kamehameha Statue before finding it.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

You will see the Hawaii Volcano National Park, and find the Jagger museum, see steam vents caused by lava under the crust of the earth. The Thurston lava tube was fascinating, we also visited the hidden underground tunnel and Devastation Trail.

At Sulphur Banks (Ha’akulamanu), volcanic gases seep out of the ground along with groundwater steam. These gases are rich in carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide — the gas that smells like rotten eggs. Some sulfur gases deposit pure crystals at Sulphur Banks. Other sulfur gases form sulfuric acid which breaks down the lava to clay. This clay is stained red and brown with iron oxide.

The Jagger Museum is named after Thomas A. Jagger, and it contains many exhibits and artifacts on volcanology. The Thurston lava tube is a tube through the earth that was carved out by a flow of lava many centuries ago, and you must go through a rainforest jungle in order to reach this spectacular natural wonder.

Devastation Trail is a trail that leads through an area that was devastated by volcanic activity when Kīlauea Iki erupted in 1959. Seeing the cinders made us realize just how devastating the volcanic eruption was.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Ancient Wonder: Petroglyph Sites On Big Island, Hawai-UHD 4K


Visited 2 petroglyph sites in the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island contains the largest number of petroglyphs, or prehistoric rock carvings, in the state of Hawaii as well as the Pacific region. Puakō Petroglyph Archeological Preserve, a 233-acre preservation area located near the Mauna Lani Resort in South Kohala, is home to the state’s second largest collection. Within the Puakō preserve more than 3,000 “images in stone,” or “k’i’i pohaku” have been identified, and although the true meanings of these symbols are unknown, it is generally believed they are a record of significant events in the lives of ancient Hawaiians. Within the preserve you can access an impressive field that contains about 1,200 of these petroglyphs, by taking an easy 1.5-mile walking trail. Walking through the trail leading to the petroglyphs site is quite enchanting.

Another petroglyph site is on the grounds of the Waikoloa Resort. The Waikoloa Petroglyph Preserve is a great place to have a close view of the Hawaiian petroglyphs. Many of the petroglyph fields in this area reside on the Ala Kahakai Trail, also known as the King’s Trail, full of historic sites including sacred heiau, Hawaiian fishponds and settlement ruins. Unfortunately graffiti is also out there so choose for yourself which are * real * & which are modern.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park In Big Island, Hawai-UHD 4K


Visited the Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. This for Hawaiians who broke a kapu (one of the ancient laws) could avoid certain death by fleeing to this place of refuge or puʻuhonua. The offender would be absolved by a priest and freed to leave. Defeated warriors and non-combatants could also find refuge here during times of battle. The grounds just outside the Wall that encloses the puʻuhonua were home to several generations of powerful chiefs. In includes a complex of archeological sites including: temple platforms, royal fishponds, sledding tracks, and some coastal village sites.

The park contains the Hale O Keawe heiau, which was originally built by a Kona chief named Kanuha in honor of his father King Keaweʻīkekahialiʻiokamoku. After the death of Keaweʻīkekahialiʻiokamoku, his bones were entombed within the heiau.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.
