The previous summer I crashed a friend's family vacation (as I did most years) to the Big Island - so since I had already visited this great island I acted as the tour director and recreated my week long vacation into a very small 2 days - touching all the highlights!

We stayed at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott in a cabana - which is really just an over sized room - it was fine for what we needed, however I was still partial to were I stayed the last time at the Outrigger Fairway Villas. 

I took my family to my favorite beach on the island - Hapuna Beach.  It was a little more crowded this year then the previous year - but it remained a great beach regardless! 

That night I took them shopping and to my favorite brewery - Kona Brewery.  I'd check their events calendar before you go as sometimes they have live entertainment to enjoy while you eat!  They have a great menu and the prices are very affordable.  There is also an abundance of outdoor seating - perfect for enjoying a nice Hawaiian evening!

On our second day on the Big Island we rented a jeep and headed out to the most southern tip of the island in the Kau' district.  We then took the Jeep off-road to make the trip to Puu Mahana, better known as the Green Sand Beach.  You can't miss the beach as it is like a big chuck out of the earth - it is also a relatively steep walk to get down to the water, but it is relatively easy.  it was a fantastic experience that I tell everyone to do!

That was our last day in Hawaii - but I'm sure it won't be our last forever - it was now time to pack up and get ready to say Aloha in the morning.
