Big Island Planning

Jump to last reply

We are in the beginning of planning our first Hawaiian vacation. We are a family of 4 and our girls are 17 and 14. We are an active family that loves hiking and snorkeling. Our oldest daughter loves to surf off the back of our boat (I know, way different) but she would love to try regular surfing. We are very low maintenance and prefer non-touristy areas and accomodations with a kitchen. We also love to eat at local places.

Preliminary plans involve flying into Honolulu (Friday-January 9, 2015), spending an evening and a full day there exploring Pearl Harbor and finding where his uncle that died in Iwo Jima is buried. We will then take a flight from Honolulu on Sunday morning to Hilo. We would like to rent a 4-wheel drive and make our way around the big island staying at 2-3 different locations around the island. Our must dos are VNP, Mauna Kea, Akaka Falls, a couple of beach/surfing days, and snorkeling.

We will have to be back in Hilo to fly out Sunday-January 18. We would like to keep our accomodations at around 100/night. We don't mind off the beaten path places as long as they are safe. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! :)
