Hawaii Island (Big Island) Spring Break | Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa

#1 Snorkel Among Manta Rays at Night

Seeing manta rays is an amazing experience—and night swimming with them is beyond magical. Try the famous manta ray night snorkel experience at Outrigger Kona Resort and Spa. Or you can stay ashore and see them in Keauhou Bay right in front of the resort.

#2 Ride an ATV along Two Gorgeous Coasts

There are two beautiful, rugged coasts to explore on Hawai’i Island: Hamakua and Kohala. And booking an ATV tour is one of the best ways to do it. Whether you're bringing the whole family or making it a romantic excursion, it's the best kind of adventure for all.

#3 Take a Volcano Biking Tour

A bike allows you to enjoy some of the most stunning views of the island, and there are so many trails to explore. Ride along quiet back roads to the Waipio Valley Lookout for awesome views of the island or try a wild volcano biking tour of Kilauea!

#4 Attend the Feast and Fire Luau

A luau provides a great opportunity to learn about Hawaii's history and culture. The Feast + Fire Luau is the best way to enjoy this beautiful tradition—and to celebrate while dining under the stars to magical displays of music, chants and hula honoring the kūpuna (ancestors).

#5 Try 'Ulu Superfruit

The Kona Coast is known for the tropical fruit known as 'ulu (breadfruit) that grows here on the island. 'Ulu is a versatile superfruit that has a pudding-like texture and is delicious when roasted.  Check it out in markets or in local dishes.

#6 Head to Makalawena Beach for Insta Moments

Remote Makalawena Beach is a stunning white-sand beach that is more secluded than other beaches. Find your way to this hidden treasure to snap some unforgettable family photos.

#7 Stargaze From One of the Clearest Spots on the Planet

The Mauna Kea Observatories (MKO) at the summit of Mauna Kea is one of the best places to stargaze in the world. It's the largest observatory in the world and hosts telescopes operated by eleven different countries.

#8 Tour Local Coffee, Vanilla, Honey, Chocolate and Macadamia Farms

The Hawaiian islands are an agricultural paradise. Everything from macadamia nuts to coffee to dragon fruit is found on Hawaii's many farms. A farm tour or two provides the perfect opportunity for kids to learn where their food comes from.

You Deserve Hawai'i This Year

The things that locals love about life on Hawai'i Island are the same things that draw visitors to this slice of tropical paradise every year for spring break. The best reason to see Hawaii Island for spring break this year is that you can truly build your own adventure in paradise. Of course, building your itinerary any time of year is a breeze even if you can't break free for spring break.
