  • Great beach, nice sunsets, refreshing breezes, good snorkeling, all season, great views of both the ocean, Maui 
  • To the island. What idea do you have of Hawaii, what expectation? Think of long sandy beaches, high waves, nice swim in the sea or about surfing. Coconut on the beach. On Nice Hawaiian which one on the road encounters. Beautiful small towns or villages. Now press the C button. Yes, Yes, that is there how beautiful Hawaii. Forget that everything! The whole island is a giant mafiös structured tourist ripoff. The statement came from a local. For me the total disappointment. I drove all over the island by car around and visited many 'beaches'. On any single beach, it was possible to go in the Aasser. All sharp-edged lava slag and coral rock, which by the way may not be entered. At least four different warning signs are available on every Beach and warn and others risk of falling and so on lethal return currents, sharp underwater rocks. I saw not only two people in the water. All over the island I've transported a surfer or a person of a surfboard at any place or beach seen. Some access roads lead miles through lava rocks. Here it has taken a sensible way to plan even for necessary. Some access roads be checked whether there is also a four-wheel drive. On the other hand, one must go on foot. Labels that like breaking up vehicles can then enjoy a peaceful stay. In one of these ways I met then a couple who stumbled towards the beach long. This couple came from Austria and was on a world tour. They had the same impression like I exactly. They were previously on Maui, there should be even worse and tourist. The island is extremely expensive. Everything is twice as expensive as in the United States. Daily Herald Tribune, $8,50 a beer in the Resto $8, dinner in a restaurant, don't go below $80. A glass of wine in the $20. One cup pineapple in the supermarket $7. Can Cola $3. Then visit the flowing lava coast? Helicopter $500! I'm not going for the flight back from L.A. paid. What they don't tell you is that the helicopters do not close and not deep ran to fly along the coast. Look map in the Jeppesen Heli. All CTR and thus restricted zone. Am myself pilot. Then upon return, you can buy a video CD for $35. What a bullshit. My tip, buy only the CD and save yourself $500 and ordered a bottle of wine for dinner in the hotel for that. For two you will have more of them. The 500 are also used. You can also handle the ship there, makes $200 / person and lasts for 2 hours until there is. The beaches you see in the pictures are mostly not to reach by land. Here, a snorkeling tour must be booked then. Min $150 / person without equipment of course, which can be rented then very cheap in Snorkelbob, which operates on the entire island chain a water sports equipment rental. The villages and shops have 50% vacancy through the high land prices and the mafia-like hotel and tour operator business structures. It has the worst hit Hilo because it often rains and are no hotels. If you ask in the hotel where you can visit what, only the completely overpriced tours will one offered, which are in connection with each hotel and pull it firmly. Not a small shopkeeper or vendor can match that. You can see Hawaiians only as work crews in the hotel away being transported then to shift. Rich Japanese, Americans buy the land on the coasts, and build expensive villas, they inhabit a few weeks in the year. No man in huge gated areas acts leave, everything. Then the airport of Kona. This is a relic of the 1970s, like all hotel facilities on the island and completely obsolete and in need of new construction. Have experienced before an airport in one of the art warm climates, which has no waiting room or air conditioning, lounges not to mention. Then you need to come to Hawaii. Thousands very well-heeled travelers, many golfers arrive here every day. And then it manages to build it not an air-conditioned waiting room. The airport is in the middle of the lava desert and extremely hot. Yes, there is a restaurant, which is air-conditioned. There is but only access if you ordered something there too. Is especially a sign outside. And inside only completely overpriced fast food. Quarter litres milk $3.5 z.b I was then glad after a week back on the plane to sit to get away from there. Bottom line, this island is only what must be for friends of the mass tourism that reacts realistically to be and money questions completely are lost where. You're back with buses in closed air chain from hotel to pay Beach and the evening event. Of which it seems in the United States some to give. Japanese also. I will set foot again on these or other islands in the group. For me, travel Hawaii the end-taeuschendste travel experience of the last twenty years, and I was a lot. If you still experience but not so far that would want to fly. Then fly the most expensive hotel, the most expensive car and the best restaurants to Tenerife booking and you have paid only half of Hawaii.
