    Wonderful information, but needs reorganizing

    0 4/5 stephanie c (oak park, ca United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) I just got back from two weeks on the big island and was able to explore every wonderful nook and cranny with the help of this book. It is so chock full of information about cool, hidden places, restaurants, swimming holes, etc. But for the love of Pete - can they organize it by area, not by activity. I can't tell you how many times I flipped through that book trying to find something I had previously read and couldn't remember whether it was in Sights, Beaches, Activities or Adventures - it's maddening! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 27, 2014

    Great book!! Check out the app for iPhone and Android first though.

    0 5/5 Matt Clark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Kindle Edition) The book is about as good as guide books get. Personally I used the Kindle version of the book on my iPad and then downloaded the app to my phone for $7-8, which we used constantly on the road. I would say you could easily get away with JUST THE APP, but the book has far more info. I would also say, spring for the app whether you buy the book or not because it has GPS maps whether you have an internet connection or not and we constantly needed to look at exactly where we were when trying to find remote beaches and such. Seriously, buy the freaking app. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2014

    When a good guide book becomes too successful

    0 4/5 HeatherR - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) The book is a wonderfully written guide to exploring the ins and outs of the Big Island. I used it in 2007, 2008 and most recently the new edition in 2014. I gave it four stars instead of five simply because I have seen the impact that revealing the local secrets has had on some of the ecosystems. For example, while there were destructive 4-wheel drive paths all over landscape from South Point to the olivine sand beach in 2007, there were very few people on those paths and at the beach. In 2014 the place was packed. Few people were walking to the beach (it's not THAT far or rigorous for that matter) and many were paying locals to take them to and from the olivine beach. What was once a tranquil place, a reward for walking to it, was more like a mini-resort. The walk was no longer lovely because you were watching out for smelly vehicles. Shouldn't some things be explored on foot? There are enough attractions to which one can drive. Perhaps some places should be left for locals to enjoy. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 15, 2014

    Best maps

    0 5/5 aloha "Leilani" (Aurora, IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) All of the James Bier maps are the best of every island. Don't waste your money on others and don't try to find off the beaten path places with rental car maps. These maps show the locacations and name of every waterfall and the date of every lava flow. A must for those interested in the real Hawaii. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    Best maps for Hawaii

    0 5/5 Hawaii guy (Big Island) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) The James Bier maps of the Hawaii Islands are the best reference for your travels. We've been using these maps for getting around the islands for over 20 years. The detailed geographic information and relief shading to show land details and lava flows are great. The close-up maps of developed areas and special features such as Hawaii Volcano National park cover just about everything you'll need.The only other map we use is the book (Ready Map Book of East (or West) Hawaii) of street maps that helps us find specific streets in the various subdivisions. We only need that on rare occasions. Usually the James Bier map is enough. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 8, 2012

    A trusty companion

    0 4/5 NoVAReader (Northern Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Discover Hawaii the Big Island (Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition) We used this travel guide every day during our trip to the Big Island. It proved to be an indispensable companion. The tips on everything from sights to restaurants were extremely helpful. We visited several "off the beaten path" gems thanks to this book. The only downside of the book is that it is organized by region. At times this made it a little difficult to search the book while on the road. We used the Kindle edition, so it may be a little easier to use in paperback. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 9, 2012

    Great tips

    0 5/5 SouthTexasEvo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Discover Hawaii the Big Island (Travel Guide) (Paperback) I've gone through the entire book and have found it to be a valuable resource for activities and hotels. I plan on using it for tips on food when we actually take our trip in January but it directed me to some resources that I wasn't even aware of for accomodations and the accomodations we've booked look to be better and cheaper than the hotels in the areas.We are going with a 2 year old and because of that it eliminates a lot of activities, I found the book was very useful in identifying some additional activities that we could do with young children. I'm looking forward to our trip and will be using this book as a guide throughout the entire time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 9, 2011
