Waterfalls,  Pineapples Lunch and Hapuna Beach Tour

Begin your day with a spectacular view of Rainbow Falls and Akaka Falls. First stop is Rainbow Falls where the early morning sunlight creates a rainbow prism effect along the mist of the 80' drop of water. Above the Fall, there is a gorgeous circle of Banyan Trees that is absolutely magical.

Just 14 miles from Rainbow Falls is splendid Akaka Falls on the Kolekole Stream. A magnificent 442' tall cascade of water that flows through a dense rainforest. The rainforest has a luscious array of trees, ferns, vines, orchids and a variety of other exotic plants.

We'll lunch at Pineapples Fresh Island Cuisine in Hilo before heading to Hapuna State Beach for a luxurious dip in the ocean. This is one of the largest white sand beaches on the Big Island, and it is one for enjoying in the late afternoon sun. You are sure to enjoy this beautiful and romantic day in Paradise.

This magical tour starts with sampling some of the best fresh roasted Kona Coffee at historical Greenwell Farms, sure to give you a great start to your day. Greenwell Farms is located on Scenic Mamalahoa Highway, where our famous 34 mile long "Kona Coffee Belt" is located. I'll take you on a short tour of the plantation before we head down to the Bay.

The drive down to Kealakekua Bay is as curvy as it is spectacular, winding down through tropical jungle from 1500' elevation to sea level. We'll check out the visitor area to view the Bay and Captain Cook Monument before heading to the park for a deli-style picnic lunch. We'll go on a short hike to explore the tide pools and breathe in the Aloha Spirit of this sacred place.

The City of Refuge (Pu'uhonua o Honaunau), next up, is quite a historical site. Where ancient lawbreakers could go to be exonerated by the Kahuna, and also during battle, warriors could go for a time-out in a designated safe space, and could pledge their allegiance to the victor of the battle. This place is the finest example of a Pu'uhonua in all of Hawaii. It exudes the peace and tranquility of its' name to all who visit here! A historical treasure to explore!

Our last stop is right next-door, Two-Step beach, famous for its' easy ocean entry and fabulous coral reefs. You'll spend some time in the warm ocean before heading back to Kona town. 

What to bring: Sunscreen, swimsuit, beach towel

What to wear: Comfortable shoes and breathable clothing, hat, sunglasses.
