It's easy to feel awed on Hawaii Island. From the molten magma flowing from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Maunakea, from the green rainforests of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu beach; Hawaii Island is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature.
To avoid confusion with the name of the entire state, the island of Hawaii is often called the "Big Island", and what an appropriate name it is. Nearly twice as big as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, its sheer size can be inspiring. You will fid all but two of the world's climatic zones within this island's shores.
You will find everything from great resorts and incredible golf courses to Hawaiian historical sites, from black lava covering vast part of the Island to active vulcanos, from black to green sand beaches ( yes the only green sand beach in the world). In a few hours in the winter you can drive from the beach to the snow capped Maunakea.
