Hilo, Island of Hawaii

Hilo ©
One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Waipio Valley and 49 Black Sand Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Richardson Beach Park and Makalawena/Pu'u Ali'i. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Hilo: Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa), Kīlauea (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Waikoloa). Next up on the itinerary: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls, take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, and kick back and relax at Carlsmith Beach Park.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Hilo tour itinerary planner.
