Top Rated Attractions in Hawai'i (Big Island)

Search Radius (Miles)
Mauna Kea

Standing tall at 13,803 feet (4,207.3 meters), Mauna Kea is the highest peak in the state of Hawaii. It is also one of five volcanic hot spots on the island, but is currently dormant, having witnessed its last eruption about 3,600 years ago. The mountain is sacred to the native Hawaiian people, and only high ranking members of the community were traditionally allowed to ascend the peak. Its summit is considered one of the best astronomical observation sites in the world and is home to a number of observatories. Numerous trails exist on the mountain, some of which lead up to the summit.

Kahilu Theatre

Kahilu Theatre is a local theater that was founded with the aim of encouraging creativity and innovation. The diverse shows staged here explore different aspects of performing arts and entertain audiences as well. This theater can accommodate 490 patrons and hosts drama, comedy shows, musicals, concert series and similar gigs. Also, the venue can be rented for private events and functions. For more details, check website or call ahead.

Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area

Among Big Island's white sand spots, this one stands out and is regularly ranked among the top beaches in the world. The sand is sugar-fine, warm and clean and stretches as far as the eye can see. The waves are deep blue in the distance, foamy when they hit the shore. The half-mile strip also has great facilities like a paved walkway leading from the parking lot, which is a rarity in Hawaii!

Kenji's House

One of the more noticeable art galleries in the North Kohala area, this gallery sits along the roadside in an old renovated plantation home. The art cooperative most famous resident is Kenji Yokohama. He grew up on the homestead in an area that was a bustling plantation town. Today, the house consists of a museum, artist studios and galleries in a lush and tropical setting. Artists come for inspiration the North Kohala area, which provides others to come a bit of history and enjoy the amazing talents that have developed in this small plantation home.

Kekaha Kai State Park

This is one of the Big Island's best places to swim, sunbathe, picnic and bodysurf. A dirt road off Highway 19 (aka Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway), leads out to Mahai'ula Beach, where a picturesque crescent of golden sand meets the head of a protected bay. Kua Bay, located about a four-mile hike north from the beach, is a good place for more activities. Divers frequently visit the underwater tunnels and the shipwreck off shore. In vehicles that aren't four-wheelers, drives down the one-mile unpaved road to the beach will be a difficult one.

Puako Petroglyphs

Estimated to be between 200 and 1000 years old, these eerie, timeless remnants of Hawaii's past are at the end of a 0.7 mile paved trail. The trail is easy to maneuver and the scenery is amazing. The first part travels over a vast expanse of lava rock. Eventually it leads into a dry wood forest where crude symbols are carved into large rocks. The historic site is located in the Holoholokai Beach Park.
