The Big Island (Hawaii island)
You might know that it as Waimea, but the post office didn't. When the post office demanded all towns in a state had their own name, Waimea, Maui kept its designation and Waimea on the Big Island went with the Hawaiian version of Samuel, chose for one of the town's favorite sons. Kamuela is a very different sort of Hawaiian vacation experience. Think cowpoke and ranch hands vs. beaches and mai tais. The interior town has several stunningly beautiful hotels and nine golf course, and where else on Hawaii could you tour a working cattle ranch?

逆风燕A place to go and want to go in Hawaii! Rent a red sports car and drive on a beautiful beach for the perfect deduction holiday! Volcano Park is primitive, except for the more expensive accommodation, nothing wrong, wait until the epidemic is over, I hope to go to jump off the island again.

Beach
M30***41Be prepared for a hike over the lava flows to reach this beautiful beach. The drive is very bumpy so drive very slow. The hike keeps the crowds way, beautiful sand,swimming is safe as long as the water is calm. Make sure to pack your picnic basket with necessities.

FlorafifleAt an altitude of 13,796 feet (4205 meters), this is the highest mountain on the Big Island of Hawaii. If you count the part of it submerged in the sea, its height will exceed 10,000 meters, making it the highest mountain in the world (more than the Himalayas). But height is only an indicator to measure it. What I like is the stargazing experience in the mountains. In the eyes of traditional Hawaiians, it is a sacred place. The weather here is dry and there is no light pollution. There are more than 300 sunny nights throughout the year. Therefore, it has become one of the best places in the world for astronomical observation. Astronomical telescopes are scattered all over the hills. Drive there in the afternoon, enjoy the spectacular sunset on the earth from the clouds, step on the brown volcanic land, and have an infinitely broad field of vision. There will be a feeling of being outside the earth. Stargazing at night can see countless twinkles, which really complied with the phrase "stars can be picked by hand". It was cold, but I really couldn't bear to leave the bright starry sky.
Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden

Botanical Garden
Terry KMust see! This is really a magical and spiritual place with a giant assortment(s) of tropical flowers in natural settings. Part jungle, gardens, and oceanfront views. If I only had time to do ONE thing while on this side of the island, I'd do this.
