<p>Hawaii can get pretty pricey, between airfare, hotel rooms, food, and activities once you’re on the islands. Luckily, if you know where to look you can fill your days with excursions that won’t break your budget. All beaches in the state are public, so you can enjoy free swimming, walking, and sunbathing on any sandy strip. But for a unique Big Island experience, here are our favorite activities for under $15.</p>  <p>You’ll need a car for most of these (rentals start at $22 a day)&mdash;the <em>Big</em> Island has its name for a reason. This list starts on the Hilo side and travels north and west to the Kona side. For a full experience, we recommend visiting both sides of the island.</p>  <p>Other suggestions?
