When people refer to Big Island as the most pristine island of the Hawaiian archipelago, they are thinking of the eastern coastline: pounding waterfalls plunge powerfully into the deep, and tropical rainforests characterize the landscape.
What to Expect
The Hamakua Coast in eastern Hawaii is wild, fertile, and wonderfully beautiful. Powerful waterfalls plunge into the deep and drape the mossy escarpments with bright rainbows. Wild sugarcane grows on the rocky shores of the deep-blue Pacific, and the exotic flowers spread their scent all around.
Let the indescribable views and bewitching aromas beguile you.
