Really nice place. It requires walking down a hill, but you can get a golf cart ride.
“Akaka Falls Park is about 11 miles north of Hilo on the Hamakua Coast. You can actually see 2 waterfalls ! A short walk involved but well worth it with lush plants and trees. Nice views on the way up to and from the falls. (Fee I think is $5/car) Yes a beautiful drive !”
“Something for everyone. Great hiking and walking trails. Small museum. Have lunch at the Volcano house on the rim of the crater.”
“Beautiful scenery. I do not recommend driving down the steep valley road. It is a one-lane road that can be dangerously treacherous. ”
“Great outdoor market with tons of local produce and goods. Definitely worth checking out when in the Hilo side. ”
