The Big Island of Hawaii

Say ‘aloha’ to the Big Island of Hawaii – the largest and most diverse island in the Hawaiian archipelago.

The Big Island (also called Hawai'i Island) is home to a wide selection of gorgeous white- and golden-sand beaches as well as tropical rainforests, fiery volcanoes, black lava deserts and snow-capped mountain peaks.

The volcanic peaks of Mauna Kea, the world's tallest sea mountain, and the 9144m-high Mauna Loa, the earth’s largest volcano, create a natural barrier to block the north-easterly trade winds, giving the western coast a dry climate with the best beaches and water conditions in Hawaii.

Here you can swim, snorkel and dive year round to discover an underwater paradise teeming with colourful marine life; kayak caves, secluded coves and gorgeous beaches only accessible by sea; or hook up a charter to fish for blue marlin.

The eastern coast is rugged, with pounding surf, tropical rainforests and majestic waterfalls.

On land, the Big Island offers a tremendous choice of hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities just a 45-minute flight away from Honolulu.
