. If you're looking for a driving adventure, consider a day trip to Hawi at the northern tip of the island. After a nice lunch at Bamboo Restaurant, you can browse the many art galleries in town. We also recommend driving north of Hawi to the Pololu Valley lookout. From the top of the trail you get your first look at the windward side of the Big Island, with its lush green foliage, steep cliffs and verdant valleys. For the more intrepid among you, you can hike down to a small black-sand beach. Remember to bring your mosquito repellent!
