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.

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.
