Are you looking for a Big Island itinerary to visit Hawai’i? Well, you’re in luck. I spent a week in a yurt on a macadamia nut farm in Kealakekua, 25 minutes outside of Kona. My friends and I rented a car (which is necessary) and drove around the island eating, hiking, beach hopping, and more.
Exploring the island is a must even if you decide to stay at a resort. Due to renting a car and making Kona our home base, we took in the most beautiful views of Big Island. With a week to explore, we might as well see as much as possible, right?
Whether you are looking for things to do in Kona or things to do in Hilo, this blog post can help you. There is so much to see, learn, and eat. Here is a 7-day Big Island itinerary divided by areas on the island such as Kona, Hilo, and Captain Cook. Stay tuned until the end to find bonus activities to do too.
