Families looking for the ultimate summer destination have long journeyed to Hawaii's Big Island in search of the many wonders the Aloha State has to offer. For those vacationers with a beach house rental in Hawaii
, a trip to the city of Hilo is a must!
Nature-loving travelers will also want to check out Rainbow Falls, a highly accessible cove that is one of the more beautiful natural attractions in the region. The nearby Lili'uokalani Gardens are another natural wonder, created in the early 1900s to commemorate the island's immigrant Japanese population that helped develop the old Waiakea Sugar Plantation. For cultural tourists, Wailoa State Park features a 14-foot tall statue of the famed King Kamehameha I, the first king of Hawaii who reigned from 1782 until his death in 1819.
The immaculate beaches remain largely undeveloped, preserving their pristine postcard-like beauty. Families will have a lot of fun relaxing on the water's edge and soaking up the sun or wading through the shallow waters for a swim. While the natural splendor of the beach remains, that doesn't mean the area is desolate, as Panwa Beach is lined with numerous bars and restaurants, providing vacationers with a bevy of snacking options as they stroll the calming coastline.
