Kauai addict needs advice about the Big Island

Jump to last reply

DH, my brother, sister-in-law, and I are wanting to go to Hawaii from May 26-June1. The plan so far has been to take my brother/sister-in-law to Kauai but I started thinking of going to the Big Island. My brother/sister-in-law have never been to Hawaii. DH & I have been to Oahu (once) and Kauai (four times).

I need advice from Big Island experts...

For starters, I found this VRBO rental: http://www.vrbo.com/133282
I was thinking we could start the trip here and visit Volcanoes National Park.
1) If we move during the trip, where should our next base be? Kona?
2) What if we didn't move...what could we do at this base?
3) How do Big Island addicts feel about Kona vs Hilo?

As for us, we want to do typical activities...relaxing on a beach, hiking, snorkeling, get up close to some sea turtles.
4) Favorite beaches?
5) Favorite activities?

Mahalo!
