Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls is Hilo’s greatest waterfall, cascading 80 feet over an ancient cave, believed to be the home of Hina, mother of the demigod Maui. In the morning, when the sun hits the misty waterfall, Rainbow Falls is at its best. Remember to bring your camera!

Liliuokalani Gardens

This beautiful Japanese gardens, known as the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens, is dedicated to Hawaii’s last monarch and the Japanese workers of Hawaii. A drive through the gardens let you experience Hilo’s peaceful escape, quiet streams and Japanese bridges. You’re invited to discover Liliuokalani Gardens.

Banyan Drive

Near the Liliuokalani Gardens is Banyan Drive, populated with 50 banyan trees planted by various celebrities and popular figures, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Banyan Drive offers views of Kuhio Bay, a gorgeous Hawaiian bay where stand-up paddlers glide across the waters and rainbows arch across the sky on a regular basis.

Kilauea Volcano

When people think Big Island tours, they imagine Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Kilauea’s history—it’s been erupting constantly since the 1980s—draw visitors into the amazing world of Hawaiian natural wonders, where sea and fire struggle daily in a battle of the elements. When lava is active, the landscape comes alive as molten rock pours into the Pacific Ocean. The landscape is ever-changing, and lava activity can create incredible event, like a lake of lava rising and collapsing in a matter of a few short months. It’s truly amazing to watch this in person!
