Big Island – day 1.

On our first full day on the Big Island we decided to go up to the north peninsula. Our first stop was at Hapuna Beach – almost as nice as Torrette Beach. . From there we moved on to Pu’ukohola Heiau which is an ancient Hawaiian temple site. An interesting place but unfortunately the temple area is considered very sacred and so closed to the public. From there we drove through the small town of Hiwa which had some nice art and crafts shops and restaurants and onto their equivalent of Lands End. A couple of photos and then back for lunch.

We had lunch at the Bamboo Restaurant which according to the guide book is one of the best on the island. It is very low key but the food was good. We both had salads and felt very virtuous. However, when the waitress offered desserts we crumbled opting for home made passion fruit cheesecake.
