These are eight top things to enjoy while visiting the beautiful atoll.

1. Whale Watching – The 'Big Island' is the most popular destination for whale watching in Hawaii.

The peak season to catch a glimpse of Humpback whales is from January to March.

There are group and private tour options available.

2. Luaus – These traditional ceremonies are a major source of entertainment on all of the islands within Hawaii.

Take the opportunity to enjoy live dancing, learn about Hawaiian as well as Polynesian culture, and enjoy delectable cuisines.

3. Watch Lava become an Island

Hop aboard a World-class catamaran to get up and close to the volcano fingers as they enter the sea.

You will have thoroughly trained staff aboard, and safety is paramount. You can select a private tour in the morning, at sunset, during the day, or maybe a twilight tour.

4. Helicopter Tours – Various tour lines offer unique aerial journeys that allow you to view the breathtaking Hawaiian scenery.

From volcanoes and waterfalls to hidden valleys and majestic coastlines.

A helicopter tour is truly an ideal way to experience the majesty of the islands.

5. SUP (Stand-Up Paddle Boarding) – This activity originated in Hawaii and is a derivative of surfing. SUP is soothing and allows you to explore the waterways on your terms.

You can even take a Yoga class on a paddle board.

An excellent paddle path to take is from the Lanikai Beach to the Mokulua Islands.

6. Horseback Riding Tours – Explore the coastline or venture to hidden trails on an exploratory horseback tour.

Most companies offer private as well as group tours. Countless ranches and stables are available to accommodate tourists.

7. Mauna Kea – This dormant volcano is a unique wonder to explore. It last erupted over 4,000 years ago.

You can hike the summit but be sure to stop by the VIS (Visitor Information Station) to check for weather and safety tips.

Mauna Kea is the number one climb for cyclists. But if you’re not a professional that’s ok, head over to Maui you can get a ride to the top of Haleakala and bike down.

8. Kona Coffee Farm Tour – Kona coffee is one of the top gourmet coffees in the world. Kailua Kona, which is located on the 'Big Island,' is the heart of Kona coffee.
