Hawaii, the Big Island, goes by many names, including Orchid Island, for its tropical rain forests, or Volcano Island — a nod to active Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes on earth. Hawaii Island is not only the biggest island, but also the youngest of the Hawaiian Islands. Due to its two active volcanoes, Maunaloa and Kilauea, Hawaii Island is still growing larger to this day.
Hawaii Island offers vacationers a perfect getaway for adventurers. Take a helicopter tour over Kilauea volcano or discover Maunaloa, the largest mountain on earth in terms of volume and area covered. Stay at hotels in Keauhou, on the Kohala Coast, Kona Coast, or in Hilo. Sun yourself on the shoreline, or venture way out while on your Big Island vacation and stargaze atop 13,796-foot Maunakea. Whether it’s a visit to the rain forests you seek or exotic black sand beaches, Hawaii, the Big Island will deliver.
