Day 2 Part 2: Vibrancy of Big Island

After the amazing snorkeling experience the second spot was Pololu Valley Overlook.It is around 60 mile of driving towards north through highway 270 which takes around 1 and half hour. The last 15 minutes of drive is very scenic & fun with sharp turns, sudden elevation, one lane bridges. Popolu valley overlook is a magnificent place & a treat for the eyes. Although that evening was a little overcast still the panoramic view of blue water, greenery & black sand beach provides an incredible combination.


We did not have the time to hike down the valley as we the next plan was to enjoy the sunset in magical Hapuna white sand beach which is a drive of around 75 minutes from there. And here it is…Treat yourself with the amazing colors..

We spent the rest of the evening roaming around Kona Downtown Area exploring local shops,foods and drinks in Coconut Grove marketplace. The street is filled with happy people, live music are getting played in the restaurants.. its a festive joyful place with good food & quality drinks. Ahh…what a delightful time we had!!
