My suggestion is to get the Big Island REvealed book and perhaps search this forum for "Big Island" etc. You will find tons of information that has been prevoiusly posted.

You don't need to do day trips to visit perhaps two of the best beaches in the world...Hapuna & Mauna Kea. :)

Hapuna is public parking, Mauna Kea you need to arrive early since there are only 30 parking spots given by the hotel for public access.

Just spend all your time at those two spots and you will be in heaven! :D
