Hawaii, the Big Island
Hawaii, the Big Island; big on adventure, culture, history, and Aloha. The youngest island in the Hawaiian archipelago (a mere half-million years old), Hawaii Island is still growing thanks to Kilauea volcano. Yet our island is larger than all the other islands combined, hence its nickname, "Big Island." This is also the island where Polynesian voyagers from afar are believed to have first made landfall in Hawaii.
Here, you can stroll beaches where sea turtles outnumber people, travel to ancient sites and discover our culture through stories, arts, crafts and cuisine. Gaze at stars that inspire dreamers and scientists atop Maunakea, the tallest mountain in the world or visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll through historic towns, relax at one of countless, sun-blessed resorts, walk through lush forests, snorkel or dive at night with giant manta rays. For those craving adventure, wild beauty and uncrowded Hawaiian splendor, Hawaii Island is the ultimate experience.
From natural wonders to uncommon luxury, find your inspiration on the island where it all begins, Hawaii, the Big Island.
