THINGS TO DO ON THE ISLAND OF HAWAII

WELCOME TO THE ISLAND OF HAWAIʻI

The island of Hawaiʻi is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain. Nearly twice as big as all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined (hence, its nickname, “Big Island”), its sheer size is awe-inspiring. Endless possibilities await you. You can travel through all but four of the world’s different climate zones here. The variety of the elements allows visitors to experience anything from active volcanoes at Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park to snow-capped mountains of Maunakea, and black-sand beaches of Punaluʻu Beach, to enriched rainforests and lush valleys of the Hilo and Hāmākua Coasts.

The Big Island is full of history in its small towns and sacred Hawaiian grounds; yet you can experience some of Hawaii’s most luxurious resorts and their neverending amenities. With so much ground to cover, the various tours help in planning your trip to ensure you don’t skip a beat. Explore the waters swimming with the dolphins and manta rays, while whale watching against a gorgeous sunset backdrop.

On land, you can zip-line over the island’s infamous botanical gardens or trek by Jeep into the deep jungles. Step out of the box and learn about some of the Native Hawaiian traditional beliefs with the Ghost Tour of the island or venture off on your own by renting an electric bike. However you decide to experience the island, it is sure to leave you humbled!
