Trip Report PHOTOS Big Island Hawaii Trip Report: Papayas in Paradise!

Jump to last reply

Below is a link to our photos of the amazing Big Island of Hawaii. >:D< I also posted this link at the end of my longer trip report.

The Big Island of Hawaii is my favorite island in the world because of the wonderful variety of things to see and do there, and the natural beauty. We enjoyed swimming with the honu (green sea turtles), driving up to breathtaking Mauna Kea at over 13,000 feet, exploring the stark and inspiring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and stopping at an organic Kona coffee farm in the hills above Kona.

We found the Big Island of Hawaii to be friendly, and NOT ruined by tourism. It felt more "Hawaiian" to us, as compared to Maui and Kauai. On the Big Island you don't have to go far to get in touch with the culture and history of Hawaii.

I highly recommend the Shipman House B&B in Hilo on the green side of the Big Island. Hilo is a local's town, and we can't wait to return to Hilo on our next visit! It makes a wonderful base to tour the east side of the island. Would we stay at Shipman House B&B next time? Yes, definitely!!!! Can't wait to to back!

We also stayed at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the Kohala coast. It was expensive but nice for an anniversary stay. We swam with the honu (green sea turtles) right at the Mauna Lani's beach! Would we stay at the Mauna Lani again? Maybe, but I might also try someplace new next time.

Hope you enjoy a selection of our photos below. I would also like to mention that we have been to various islands in the Caribbean, including St. Kitts, Virgin Islands, Dominica, and St. Lucia...as well as to Kauai and Maui. For me, the Big Island of Hawaii is now my #1 favorite island in the world!
