outside such as plumeria trees and some friendly
geckos. The beach that was right near our house
(A'bay short for Anaehoomalu Bay) Was really pretty
It had nice sand and crystal clear waters. I found that
the Big Island had so much diversity on the east side it is lush and rainy and on the west side you will
find dried lava! I had an amazing stay and I recommend
this island for everyone!
Where we stayed: Waikoloa area near a'bay
beaches: Hapuna, A'bay, Kua Bay, Kahaluu
Shopping in Waikoloa> We usually went to the Kings or Queens markets which had lots of chain and local stores. One of my favourite stores in those places was Mary Jane's which was a really cute accessory store. There was also another shopping centre in Waikoloa village too. Hilo had a whole bunch of really cool local shops that were really fun to browse.
Right>Always gotta get Starbucks. The Starbucks I went to was in the Queens Market
