Hawaii!! The Big Island experience

Okay the first thing I can say is wow. Hawaii has been so much fun! I have previously been to Kauai(once) Oahu(three times) Maui(Twice) and I am visiting the Big Island right now. Before I came to Hawaii I had already experienced so many cool things on each island. All of the islands were unique in their own ways. When I first arrived on the Big Island I saw a huge hill in the distance. While driving to our place we saw lots of lava and a donkey crossing sign. On our first morning in Hawaii we explored where we were staying (which was the west or the Kohala side of the island in Waikoloa villas) we got to see so many beautiful things right when we stepped
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!

Info
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.
