So I decided to rent a car and drive around the island before my start at the yoga retreat center. Because I started my day so early, I was able to check out many things around the island before meeting up with my new friends, Kim and Stef, in Kailua-Kona. I took the road North through the Hamakua Coast and stopped many times on the way. My most memorable experience on this drive was my stop at Akaka Falls.
Honestly, it takes a lot for me to actually get up and go see things in nature while alone, so driving to these falls was a big leap for me. The road to Akaka Falls is nicely paved and slightly winds around beautiful green rolling hills with a vast ocean view in the distance. After a small hike down a very unchallenging path, the immense Akaka Falls comes into view.
There is also a small Animal Protection Education Center, named “Love the Animals,” as you head back to Hwy 19, which I met the owners of and is an amazing organization for promoting Veganism.
