Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Their brunch never disappoints.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Take a Volcano hike. Where else in the world are you going to get this close to an active volcano?

Lookouts: Polulu & Waipio Valley

The ancient Hawaiians believed souls departed from Earth here, and it's easy to see why - the place has a really magical, mystical feel to it, on top of being just plain beautiful.

Huggo's Restaurant

The sesame crusted ahi is amazing.

Manta Ray Dive

Take a nighttime manta ray dive. It's a totally surreal experience, swimming in the ocean at night with manta rays flapping around you.
