Spend your days relaxing on rare, scenic beaches, ride on horseback through verdant valleys, and get up close and personal with active volcano vents.
While travelers have ample opportunities to relax and unwind on the Big Island, thrill enthusiasts can tour the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see the tallest, largest, and most active volcanoes on the planet: Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Kīlauea.
The Big Island presents a tropical paradise, with white sand, black sand, and even green sand beaches scattered throughout the coasts. Kauna’oa Beach, or Mauna Kea Beach, displays one of the most gorgeous white sand beaches you can behold throughout the Islands. Punalu’u Beach and Kaimū Beach display black sand comprised of lava fragments stretching along the shoreline. Furthermore, Papakōlea Beach is made up of green crystals composed of black lava and white sand, giving the beach an otherworldly look.
No matter your budget, you’ll find spacious, beautiful lodging throughout the island. Feel at home when you’re on vacation, whether you stay at a quaint bed and breakfast, a vacation rental home, or hostel. Furthermore, the island offers cottages, hotels, inns, condos, and waterfront luxury hotels to suit your travel preferences.
