Things to Do in Waimea and Waikoloa (Big Island Guide Day 1 + 2)

Despite being near each other, both the Waikoloa and Waimea regions of the Big Island offer contrary but awesome attractions. Just north of Kailua-Kona, Waikoloa is a collection of villages known for high-end resorts and pristine beaches, rivaling those directly south. But even without racking up a check, there are plenty of scenic points to view here. Then, just up the neighboring mountains is Waimea, the gateway to Hilo and the Northeast, providing a green transitional landscape with beautiful hikes and beaches.

We’ll be hitting the ground running after landing in the Kailua-Kona Airport, taking 2 days to explore the North-Northwest of Big Island in this guide to Waimea and Waikoloa.
