1st Trip to The Big Island July 2013

Jan and I talked our Liz and Paul into joining us on our first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii. Waipio Valley Tiki We rented a very nice condo at Aston Kona by the Sea which had an unobstructed view of the ocean and beach. It was nice falling asleep at night listening to the waves crashing into shore. WE spent most of our time in the Kona area snorkeling and diving around to the different attractions. One day we explored the Hilo side, visiting some waterfalls and a tropical garden. We took a strenuous hike in Waipio Valley and went to Mauna lanai two other days.

The website is broken into different areas of the Big island. You can click on the image links above or use the navigation bar to navigate to different areas . The slide shows are written in flash. If you can't view slide shows or get warnings , you may need to adjust your flash settings. Click on the links below for some cool 360 degree and panoramic images (it may take time to load with slow connections).
