We flew to Honolulu with Hawaiian Airlines, and connected on another Hawaiian Airlines flight to Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Flights were smooth with really good connections.
We stayed at Hilton Waikoloa Village, Kona. This hotel is on the beach in Kona, the facilities were amazing with gondola’s to get you from one side of the resort to the other, also a monorail to do the same thing. There are many restaurants, seafood , Japanese, Korean, also attached to a world class golf course.
Holiday highlights were a helicopter ride over a volcano and around the island. The scenery is stunning as the coastline changes from lush green to black lava landscapes. We also got to swim with the dolphins at the Dolphin Quest which was a fantastic experience.
