Practical Info

If driven without stopping, the Hamakau Coast from Hilo to Waipio takes a little over an hour. This stretch of coastline is windy and wet, although the 80-some annual inches of rain keep the waterfalls and valleys alive. To avoid the rain and beat the wind, mornings are often the best time of day to see it before the afternoon tradewinds arrive.

Private Full-day Hamakua Coast and Sugar Tour from Kailua-Kona
Val gave us a fabulous private tour of the islands waterfalls sugar and coffee. Most memorable: we traveled down a winding road lined with banana trees to see a temple and an old harbor with a black sand beach and such blue clear water. I didn't think he could outdo Rainbow Falls, however Val took us to a waterfall that he said not too many people go to. I believe it was more beautiful than Rainbow Falls. We enjoyed the white pineapple at the farmers market. We enjoyed stopping for Masaladas too.Val was very accommodating to my husband and I with our limited mobility. He was very knowledgeable about the islands and answered all of our questions. We would have him tour us again. Thank you.
