The Big Island is an exceptional destination for those who love active lifestyles, the great outdoors and the beautiful tropical surroundings and landscapes enjoyed here year-round. Today there are more people who engage in active lifestyles than ever before, from hiking and jogging to bicycling, golfing and more. Even those who aren’t big into fitness love being outdoors, especially in a magical place like this.
Here are a few examples of what those who live on the Big Island love most about the outdoors.
Riding horses. You may not picture Hawaii as a place where you’d find pastures and horseback riding, but it’s all here! From the magnificent mountain peaks, pastures and coastline, you’ll find several ranches in Waimea that are happy to offer guided tours via horseback. Truly amazing!
Water activities galore. From night diving, surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving to kayaking and fishing, the beautiful warm waters offer so many things to enjoy, escape the crowds and soothe your senses. Water is the most soothing element on earth, and there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy it here.
Golfing. Of course you wouldn’t expect this to be left off the list of favorites for outdoor enthusiasts, considering the Big Island has so many spectacular courses that offer not only a fun challenge, but gorgeous views of the coastline depending on where you’re playing. Kukio Resort in the heart of the Kona Coast is where you’ll find one of the best golfing opportunities in the Tom Fazio championship course, a favorite of those truly passionate about the game of golf.
Even if playing a round of golf or horseback riding isn’t your thing, who doesn’t love just lying on the beach and enjoying the tropical breezes while soaking up the sun? Enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment, explore all of the diverse landscapes you’ll find on the island, or just enjoy the amazing views of the ocean, coastline and even other islands from countless locations (perhaps even your own lanai).
People who live on Hawaii Island often do so because of their love of the outdoors. If you’re ready to escape the confinements, noise and hustle/bustle found in most cities today, consider this tropical paradise.
