What? : There is no real vacation in Hawaii if it does not include few days at the beaches.
The Big Island is not different. In a short week or even two weeks’ vacation, you can’t visit the countless beaches the island has to offer.
I listed below the beaches we visit and added names of other attractive beaches.
Where? : There are beaches around the island but the most attractive, sandy and sunny beaches are located along highway 19 at the north east section of the island, between Knoa at the south to Kawaihae at the north.
All the west side of the island gets a lot more rain from the northeast and has much less attractive beaches.
