A Small Slice of Paradise: Waikoloa Village
No matter how you spin it, a visit to Hawaii is sure to be a refreshing change of pace. If you want to get specific, however, try to envision yourself doing exactly as you please before a backdrop that’s pretty much perfect. The Aloha State has more than its fair share of places that will fit this description, but for now let’s just focus on one; Waikoloa Village isn’t the kind of destination that completely steals the spotlight, but visitors who make it the hub of their travels usually end up congratulating themselves for making a smart decision.
Lagoons, tropical gardens, Polynesian Art and the chance to play with the dolphins are a few fun diversions that will grab your attention right off the bat. Waikoloa Village preserves and highlights its natural features but works to make the experience completely comfortable, too. In addition to eye-popping wonders of flora and fauna, you’ll find shopping, dining, and an array of engaging activities available to you at any time.
Located along the south Kohala Coast, this dizzying destination not only packs a lot into its own compact space, it puts you in touch with all the gifts of an entire popular region. Hapuna Beach, Hilo, Volcanoes National Park and many other Big Island favorites are within a few miles’ drive of your vacation condo, so pack the sunscreen and some snacks and head out for an adventure.
Obviously it’s possible to keep yourself pretty busy here – that’s busy in a relaxed, content, save-plenty-of-time-for-naps kind of way. Let the trade winds lead you around or stay close to your home away from home, either scenario is sure to end with the same result. You’ll return home feeling rejuvenated, calm, and warmed from the inside out, and you’ll be glad to have chosen this island paradise.
