One Day Big Island of Hawaii "Grand Circle Island" Tour
This is the perfect all-day tour if you're on Oahu and you want to visit a neighbor island that is entirely different from where you're staying. This daylong trip departing from Kona, showcases the Big Island’s breathtaking diversity—from lush tropical rainforests to world-famous coffee fields to volatile volcanoes.
The wraparound island adventure begins at Parker Ranch, then travels to Rainbow Falls State Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Punaluu Black Sand Beach and past the world-renowned Kona coffee fields. At the first stop at Rainbow Falls State Park, soaring waterfalls cascade from a natural volcanic backdrop. Next is a visit to Big Island Candies, famous for its chocolate-dipped, macadamia nut shortbread cookie.
You will visit Of course, an exploration around the Big Island would hardly be complete without a visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to encounter Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the most massive volcano on the globe. Seeing these untamed volcanic wonders will leave you in awe of nature’s brute power and give you a deeper understanding of the island’s colorful, volcano-inspired legends.
After leaving the park, the tour heads to Punaluu Black Sand Beach, where sea turtles often nest, then you will be off to see the world-renowned Kona coffee plantations. The adventure winds down with gorgeous scenes of Kealekekua Bay, the first place Westerner Capt. James Cook landed in the Hawaiian Islands. A truly unforgettable experience!
