This exciting day out begins with a panoramic drive along the beautiful Hamakua coastline to the rain forest at Botanical World Adventures.
Hop on a bicycle and head off on an incredible ride through the Hamakua Coast region, historically dominated by Hawaii's sugar industry. You will bike a segment of the Old Mamalahoa Highway, surrounded by green rolling pastures and lush scenery. This once well-traveled road takes you back in time, through old plantation villages, over bridges from the early 1900s, and through an abundance of greenery. View beautiful streams and waterfalls originating from the slopes of Mauna Kea as you cross over each bridge.
Enter the botanical gardens to discover flora from all over the world -- fruit trees, orchids, grasses, brightly-colored tropical flowers and seasonal jewels and gems.
A transfer by van brings you to a waterfall on the property for one last fantastic photo opportunity.
En route back to the pier, you'll stop at the Low Store (1925) -- a family-owned treasure selling tropical smoothies and Hawaiian shaved ice (at your own expense). At Onomea Bay, visit Big Island Candies, famous for the ultimate temptation of macadamia nut shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate.
