Waikoloa

— 6 nights
Waikoloa Village is a census-designated place (CDP) in Hawaii County, Hawaii, United States. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Anaehoomalu. Get outdoors at Dolphin Quest and Samuel M. Spencer Beach Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Mauna Kea Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikoloa Petroglyph Preserve, stop by Waikoloa Beach Resort, and immerse yourself in nature at Kekaha Kai State Park.

To find ratings, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Waikoloa visit planning site.

Seattle to Waikoloa is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Seattle to Waikoloa is minus 2 hours. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Seattle in December; daily highs in Waikoloa reach 82°F and lows reach 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.

The Big Island
Aptly nicknamed the "Big Island," the Island of Hawaii features sunny, black-sand beaches on the western side by Kona and a tropical rain forest on the eastern by Hilo. In between, the massive mountain Maunaloa covers half the island, and Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupts continuously. Twice as large as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, this big chunk of land in the Pacific manages to retain a laid-back atmosphere despite its immense popularity with tourists. Instead of spending your entire vacation at one of the island's luxurious tourist resorts, go on tours of this Pacific haven's coffee and macadamia nut plantations and working ranches, or explore its nature reserves and rugged trails.
