About Big Island

Expect adventure with an exotic twist from Hawai`i, the 'big island'. Vibrant foliage and dramatic terrain form the perfect backdrop for the culture-rich communities of Hilo and Kona. A day in Hilo can be spent meandering through high-end art galleries, interesting museums and multi-cultural shops, while Kona begs you to explore its regal heritage and the rich culture of Hawai`i. From its breathtaking volcanic terrain to its world-famous beaches and surf breaks, Hawai`i is a place like no other.
