    I used to live there and it’s the most scenic island! Go see Hapuna Beach on Kona side. Visit the Hilo Farmers Market. Go get some shaved ice (the real stuff!!) at Wilson’s (located in downtown Hilo, near the Farmers Market). Go to Cafe 100 and get a loco moco (on Hilo side). Yes, visit Kilauea Volcano! Go to Waipio Valley and get some malasadas (Portuguese donuts) on the way there at Tex’s Drive In. Go to the macadamia nut farm too.

    Hike or boat to ACTIVE HOT LAVA. WHALE watch and cruise to coastal WATERFALLS on the Hilo side. All off the beaten path. Kalapana Cultural Tours is a native Hawaiian family-owned business that does some amazingly different adventures aimed at perpetuating Hawaiian culture and taking you to the hidden Hawaii.
