Welcome to the offline narrated driving tour of Big Island, Hawaii!
Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn tour.
Get ready for an explosive vacation on Hawaii’s Big Island! What sets this island apart from the others isn’t just its size, it’s also the incredible volcanic landscapes you’ll find here. Between that, the beautiful beaches, and the historic towns, you’ll find more than enough to marvel at on this self-guided tour of the Big Island’s western side.
Take a trip into Hawaii’s sacred history and traditions at the Kuamo’o Burial Ground, then get a taste of something more modern (and unexpected!) at the Honaunau Rodeo Arena. Along the way, sample some of the best coffee you’ll ever taste—straight from the source!
And don’t forget to bring swim trunks! From snorkeling at Kahalu’u Beach to watching the shoreline totally transform at Magic Sands Beach, the Big Island offers incredible seaside activities for everyone. If you’ve never seen a sunset over the Pacific, now is the perfect chance to catch one of planet Earth’s most wonderful sights.
The biggest attraction (certainly in terms of size, anyway) has to be the Big Island’s huge volcanoes. At Volcanoes National Park, you’ll get up close and personal with both Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Drive along the rim of an immense caldera, check out some petroglyphs, and take a hike through a landscape so alien NASA uses it to simulate Mars missions!
