We love staying at this Inn near Hilo. John is a very gracious host and he makes wonderful breakfasts. The views are extraordinary and the place is peaceful and relaxing. This was our 3rd trip to the island and we will return again.

I am going there for my honeymoon and I was wondering about some interesting and exciting activities or even night shows for Hawaii?
I am going there for my honeymoon and I was wondering about some interesting and exciting activities or even night shows for Hawaii?
Congratulations - The Big Island (BI) is a great place visit and if you have the time drive around it. Each side is different and therefore interesting. Kahala, to the North (historic in early Hawaii and Kamehameha I). Hilo (closest to the Cliff House) is a jumping off side to the active volcano. Hilo is a locals version of Hawaii and if music is available you'll have to ask. When we were there in Feb. we went to see the lava flowing into the sea. First from the land (rented bikes and rode maybe 4 mi on gravel road to see "pearls" or red/orange glowing spots across the flow and then took a boat out the next day to see a huge spout dumping lava into the sea. Very impressive! Night shows may only be found on the Kona side. Driving around through Volcano Nat'l Park, South Point, into Kona, Waimea, and back to The Cliff House. BI is a great island to visit, develop special memories, and "kick off" a long life together. This is just scratching the surface but hope it shows you both there's a fun time to be had. Enjoy and Again Congratulations!!

What is drive time to Volcanoes National Park? Drive time from Kona?
