Find Out About the Big Island

The Big Island has beautiful beaches and ocean, just like the other Islands. But what makes it stand out is the pure display of Nature's strength in so many forms. And it exists here as nowhere else!

The Big Island is the youngest of the Hawaiian Islands as well as the biggest. You can fit all the other Islands combined inside its borders. This size has granted it an incredible array of environments. Of the Earth's 13 recognized climate zones, 11 of them exist in this one place. From tropical beaches to rainforests to even areas of desert, you have an incredible, contrasting collection of settings to explore.

For many, the decision to come to the Big Island is made just from the desire to see Kilauea erupting in all its glory. To actually see this happening, even from a safe distance, is to truly understand the potency and force that exists within the Earth. It's a lesson in the might of the natural world that we often forget is out there. You'll return home with stories you'll be compelled to share with those near you.
