As you can see we are serious with following-up on your new year's resolution regards visiting Hawaii's Kohala Coast this fabulous year of 2007. This post is written by Keoki who has lived on the Kohala Coast for 30 years. A Kohala Coast Vacation Itinerary Day 1 This is not the day you landed on the Big Island, that was yesterday and time was probably spent getting your luggage and rental car and finding the way to your Kohala coast vacation rental or hotel room and getting settled in. Today is the day you should take time to breathe in some of what it means to be in Hawaii and how it feels to be in a Hawaiian state of mind. There are number of ways to achieve that state, the fastest and most pleasurable is having a massage to ease away those mainland tensions, next best way is to go lie on some of the best beaches in the state, those being the Mauna Kea beach and Hapuna Beach. Take the time to walk the beach and listen to the surf, you’ll soon find yourself in a Hawaiian state of mind. Hawaii is very special place and to experience the unique beauty is enhanced by taking this first day to relax and get in the mood.
