All About Waikoloa Village
On the west coast of Hawaii’s Big Island overlooking Waiulua Bay sits Waikoloa Village, a resort town located on an ancient lava field. The days here are sunny with very little rainfall, making it easy to take advantage of the overabundance of local activities. In addition to deep-sea fishing, volcano explorations, and world-class golfing, you can also hike through ancient petroglyph fields and historic temples.
Waikoloa Village also sits next to Route 19, one of the two main roads that create a big loop around the island. While there is plenty to do around Waikoloa Village, its proximity to the highway makes it a perfect jumping-off point to the nearby bays and beaches, like 49 Black Sand Beach, which resulted from a 19th-century lava flow. Alternatively, head off further and discover the many towns and natural attractions of the Big Island.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Waikoloa Village?
Waikoloa Village remains warm and humid almost year-round, without much variation between seasons. The dry season from late May to early October is relatively hot and humid. The rainy season is the rest of the year, still warm but with more precipitation. Vacation rentals in Waikoloa Village are popular in winter as well as in summer, when families can take longer holidays.
The shoulder seasons are a great time to visit Waikoloa Village and offer all the same outdoor perks, plus cultural events like a ukulele festival in March. The festival celebrates one of the most beloved instruments in Hawaii, complete with ukulele giveaways and ukulele tutorials in addition to live performances. December to April is whale season, so you may catch sight of a humpback whale while lounging on the beach.

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park
One of the best ways to discover the volcanoes of the Big Island is by visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site, about two hours from Waikoloa Village. You’ll be able to hike across dried lava craters, and get a view of the active Mauna Loa and Kilauea volcanoes, the latter of which is one of the world’s most active.
