I had a wonderful time on Big Island! This is the first trip that I planned on my own, and it was quite a learning process. I’ve compiled my Big Island travel tips and tricks below, and hope that I don’t make these mistakes again!
Our accommodation for the two nights in Hilo was at a bed and breakfast, Shaka Shak Garden Inn. It is the first time staying in this type of accommodation. My short conclusion is that it is OK with mixed feelings.
Waipio Valley Lookout was the very last stop of our Big Island trip. I think I probably missed something when I was there…
Tex Drive-In is a local eatery in the Hamakua Coast area. I didn’t know that I could get Portugese deep-fried dough balls here on the Big Island!
Akaka Falls State Park is one of the destinations on the Hamakua coast. People still come here even though it needs a little bit of detour to the inland.
