Looking for BIG adventure? Head to the Big Island of Hawaii!

With the tallest mountain in Hawaii, many picturesque black sand beaches, and the chance to see flowing lava, the Big Island, also called Hawaii Island, is a popular destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Big Island is the youngest of the large Hawaiian islands. In fact, it is still being created, with active volcano Kilauea adding new land from time to time. Currently a little over 4,000 square miles, the Big Island offers lots to see and do, from gardens and waterfalls to historic sites, and, of course, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
