Hawaii Vacations

It's easy to feel small on Hawaii, the Big Island. From the molten magma flowing from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Mauna Kea; from the green rain forests of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach; Hawaii, the Big Island is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature.

The dramatic size and scope of the largest Hawaiian Island creates a microcosm of environments and activities. All but two of the world's climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to black sand beaches. And thanks to Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii is the only U.S. state that's still growing! The regular volcanic explosions are expanding the Big island by over 42 acres per year.

On this island's vast tableau, you'll find everything from extravagant resorts and incredible golf courses to modest local towns and sacred Hawaiian historical sites. Visit the birthplace of King Kamehameha I and Hawaii's first missionary church in Historic Kailua Village. On the Kohala Coast, world-class resorts and golf courses are nestled amongst black and rust lava rock fields. In Hilo visitors will enjoy a lush and vibrant landscape that is home to an airport, great museums, art galleries, and shops.

Meanwhile, the historic town of Kailua-Kona serves as a bustling gathering place with 60 miles of coastal waters.
