[BI Day 1-5] Hilton Waikoloa Village

We stayed at Hilton Waikoloa Village during the first 4 nights of Big Island vacation. It is at the northwest part of the island, and driving to downtown Kailua-Kona takes about 40 minutes. The overall experience was good, but it was actually quite expensive. I probably won’t spend a lot of money on a resort like this again.

[BI Day 4] Dinner @ TK Noodle House

We didn’t plan to have dinner at TK Noodle House on Day 4. My sister wanted some noodle soup after our best snorkeling experience, so we followed Google Map to this place. It was better than I expected, especially my duck noodle soup!

[BI Day 4] Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park

After a very brief stay at Kealakekua Bay, we headed to another historical park just a few miles south. Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, in my opinion, is the most interesting historical park on Big Island, and it is a must-visit destination!

[BI Day 4] Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park

After having burgers for lunch, we stopped at Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park for about half an hour. I put it on my itinerary because many articles suggest that it is the best snorkeling spot on Big Island.
