This book became my companion on both my spring and fall trip to the big island. It was a great resource - everything recommended was amazing, especially the Buddhist temple hidden away in an area I never would have found near South Point. I just love Hawaii, specifically the Big Island, and this book helped me navigate my way around. Highly recommend if you are headed that direction.

No index of restaurants and restaurants aren't listed in the index. Also, this book doesn't list nearly as many snorkeling sites as the Revealed guidebooks, nor does it go into as much detail. Also don't like how accommodation information takes up room in each chapter.

Erik and I are going to the big island in March. Neither of us has been to any Hawaiian island, so we are excited. This book was given to us by a young man named Dip who just purchased our Honda Insight. Dip works for Lonely Planet and gave us a pile of books!

As usual, Lonely Planet provides another indispensable guide. I used this for my 5 week trip and saw more than I ever imagined existed. LP all the way!
