Is BIG ISLAND of Hawaii great for a sunny anniversary trip in WINTER?

Jump to last reply

Is the Big Island of Hawaii a good choice for a sunny January/February wedding anniversary trip? Would rainy weather be likely to spoil the trip in winter? We don't mind a bit of rain as long as we get a lot of sun. We enjoy exploring wild & beautiful scenery, hearing the ocean from our room, eating at local spots with fresh local ingredients, and a little snorkeling.

We are planning a 9-night trip split between the Kona side and the Hilo side of the Big Island. My biologist husband hopes to find some natural areas. We won't use a crowded pool...unless it's romantic and we have it all to ourselves. We like romantic and low-key accommodations with a great location.

I'm reading that the Waikoloa Beach Marriott is on Anaeho'omalu Bay, which is protected enough to allow safe swimming and snorkeling even in winter. Is this true? Would this be a romantic place to stay? Is it in a very built-up touristy area?

We also want to spend some nights on the Hilo side of the Big Island. Sleep in Hilo or Volcano? Are any of the b&bs romantic with a scenic location on the Hilo side?

We have been to Kauai in June years ago and it was wonderful. Maui as a January trip worked out well...we stayed at the Maui Prince Resort south of Wailea, and were able to snorkel on the beach even in January. Also loved the Hotel Hana Maui. It rained, but it didn't spoil the trip.

Thanks for your thoughts! Last year we went to Bosque del Cabo on the Osa peninsula of Costa Rica for our anniversary trip...and that's hard to follow!
