Sightseeing
Punalu’u beach is the most famous black sand beach of Hawaii and is also known as just ‘Black Sand Beach’. Besides the obvious black sands, another reason for the popularity of this beach is that you can often see endangered Hawksbill turtles and green turtles basking in the sun on the beach! Punalu’u is an expansive and easily accessible black sand beach on the Big Island. It is a great place to go for swimming, snorkeling, a (short) coastal hike, camping (with permit), or a picnic.

The Pu’u Loa petroglyph field in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the largest petroglyph field of Polynesia, and it is easy to visit once you are in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. A 0.7 (or 1.4 round-trip) mile hike takes you to a boardwalk that encircles ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs.

Helicopter tours let you see the lava and volcanoes from the air. A helicopter can get you close to a lot of action that is not accessible over land or water. Think for example about a look into the crater lake, seeing surface lava flows from the air, or lava burning through forests. Helicopter tours that take you to the lava depart from both Hilo and Kona. Tours from Hilo are shorter and thus cost less money. Still, helicopter tours are not cheap. So-called “Volcanoes and waterfalls” tours from Hilo start at a fee of $200 to $250 for ~45 minutes of flight time.

The Big Island of Hawai’i is a fantastic place for looking at the stars and is home to some of the world’s best telescopes. There are many ways in which you can fit stargazing in your itinerary: from a (free) nighttime picnic to an adventurous visit to the summit of Mauna Kea. In this stargazing guide we give plenty of background on MaunaKea and explain how you can visit the Mauna Kea visitor center and/or see the telescopes and sunset at the summit.

Hilo is the capital of the Big Island and lies on the windward (East) side of the Island. This is the rainy side on all Hawaiian islands and rainfall here averages 140 inches annually. This makes the Hilo district tropical and lush, and fills the surrounding (rain)forests with colorful flowers and waterfalls.
