For visitors staying on the Kona & Kohala coast


We drive across the island on the much improved Saddle road now called Daniel K Inouye Hwy that takes us between the two massive Volcanoes on the Island, Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa. Experience elevation change and temperature change with spectacular stark scenery. We arrive in Hilo first stop is Rainbow Falls State Park (Waterfall).

Onomea Scenic Drive: Rated as the most Important scenic drive on the Big Island The Hamakua Coast Heritage Corridor. Drive along sea cliffs, through lush valleys and gulches, tropical rain forest, across small one lane bridges, a true taste of old Hawaii.
