Have you been feeling trapped lately? Not only is it cold and dreary as we trudge through winter, but we’ve also all been feeling the pressure of being cooped up in our homes and bubbles due to the coronavirus. As such, plenty of people are feeling the travel bug, and are looking into a tropical vacation to get away from staying away from everyone else.
Where better to travel for fun in the sun than Hawaii? If you want plenty to do to have a jam-packed schedule of adventure and relaxation, you’ll likely want to pack your bags for the Island of Hawaiʻi, otherwise known as the Big Island. Let’s take a quick look at some of the top attractions Hawaii has to offer.
Kona coffee is famous, and that’s putting it lightly. Due to the climate and processing, Kona coffee has a unique taste that enthusiasts and aficionados the world around laud and love. If you visit Kona on the western side of the island, you’ll get to have the freshest cup possible. Now that is something to brag about back home to the coffee snobs you may know.
Hike a volcano (really, you can do that)
The Kilauea’iki Trail takes you on an incredible trip through a tropical rain forest until you hit a solidified lava lake. You won’t have too many chances to say you’ve hiked a volcano. You’ll enjoy the sun, unmatched sights, and gorgeous foliage (when you’re in the rain forest).
But the hiking isn’t limited to the volcano. There are botanical gardens, valleys, and beaches to hike and explore. If you’re a fan of hiking, Kona is just the place you need to be.
Life’s a beach
It’s Hawaii; it’s an island; it has beaches. But you already knew that. What you didn’t know is just how beautiful these beaches are. Not only do you have your stock standard white sandy beaches (which are gorgeous and have luxury resorts nestled on them), but they also have black sand and green sand beaches. The green sand beach contains green crystals, giving it a distinct color. The black sand beach gets its color from basalt and lava that exploded when it reached the ocean (neat!). If you’ve been itching to get in the sun and go for a swim in the Pacific, the Big Island has several options to choose from — and it’s a difficult decision which one to go to first.
Live a little (in a resort)
If you don’t want to rent a cabana or a home on the island, there is no shortage of beautiful resorts to stay in and relax. You can even catch a luau and enjoy incredible foods, drinks, and entertainment. And once it’s all over, it’s a short walk back to your room to rest. Even if you don’t stay at a resort hosting a luau, you can often still get tickets to enjoy the festivities!
