Lebensstil

The Big Island is an adventurer's paradise from under the ocean to the peaks of mountains that provide viewing opportunities for telescopes and visitors. Snorkel in the warm, reef fish rich spots all around the island. In the evening or early morning, hike to the ongoing lava flow to see the earth as it forms. When you come home tired, the lanai and pool provide you with a private place to relax or swim and rejuvenate.
