Our Big Island North Coast Loop tour is a great way to spend an afternoon! It combines an awesome oceanside drive, fantastic views, then a curvy mountain road on your return. Beginning your journey, you will travel north along the Kohala Coast, on a clear day you can see the Island of Maui in the distance. As you round the north side of the island you will go from the dry side of the Island to the wet side, notice the change to tropical plants. Passing through Town of Hawi (pronounced Ha Vee) continue to the end of the road and the breathtaking Pololu Valley. Travel back to Hawi and explore the shops or grab a bit to eat at one of the various restaurants. When you have about an hour remaining, you will need to head back. From Hawi, you will take the 250 Mountain road. This has a 3,000 elevation climb and stunning views of the west coast of Big Island.
