Situated on the island’s northeastern shore, Hilo is the gateway to some of the most spectacular, dramatic and untouched scenery found anywhere on Hawaii. Visiting this vibrant town puts you within easy reach of the volcanic wonders of the Kohala Coast, blessed with an array of astonishing natural landmarks that astound you at every turn, from cascading waterfalls and towering peaks, to fertile rainforests and blooming, fragrant gardens.

There’s rich history to this particular part of Hawaii too; Hilo itself was once a busy farming and fishing hub, and museums such as the Lyman Museum tell fascinating tales of the town’s past. Speaking of museums, a must-visit attraction is the Pacific Tsunami Museum, which offers an emotive insight into the the terrifying tsunamis that nearly swallowed Hilo many years ago. Meanwhile, you can enjoy an authentic taste of local culture at the East Hawaii Cultural Centre, and amongst the hustle and bustle of the Farmer’s Market. To sample local food and drink, be sure to stop by the many bars and restaurants.
