Discovering Hawaii: North Shore on the Big Island
Most visitors to the island of Hawaii find themselves in Kona, with some visiting Hilo, and taking trip around the island’s South Shore and interior of the island for exploration and adventure. Though these are great options for a trip to the Big Island, discovering more of Hawaii is possible, and there is so much to see on the North Shore of the island. You simply cannot miss it.
All along the north shore of the Big Island are some of the most beautiful and historic areas in all of Hawaii. From Hamakua through the Waipio Valley, and further into Waikoloa, the north shore of the island is stunning, and filled with amazing sites to see and explore. Deep valleys and towering sea cliffs provide a stunning contrast to the beautiful beaches that Hawaii is famous for and add to the natural beauty that Hawaii is known for.
Waikoloa is quickly becoming a popular vacation destination on the island, and for good reason. The Hilton Waikoloa Village is one of the best places to stay in Hawaii, offering resort amenities, plenty to do, and is located close to most destinations that you will want to visit.
The Waipio Valley puts on a dazzling showcase of natural features, highlighted by the 2,000 foot sea cliffs, deep lush valleys, and massive waterfalls. Waipio Lookout Point provides a breathtaking look at one of the island’s most treasured sites, and the panoramic views allow you to see the entire valley below.
The Kohala Coast is perhaps one of the most incredible sightseeing destinations in Hawaii, and many unknown sites are found all along the coastline. Parker Ranch, the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Factory and even the town of Kappau are all found in the area, and visitors to the town pay homage to the original King Kamehameha the Great Statue. The statue has an incredible story, being cast in France and originally lost at sea, only to be recovered and erected in the great King’s place of birth.
The Big Island is an incredible vacation, and the North Shore is a place that you must experience. To truly appreciate the entire island, many visitors enjoy an entire day of sightseeing on a Grand Circle Island Tour, visiting all of the top destinations on the island and gaining valuable insight into the island’s history, while experiencing the diversity of the island firsthand.
