Hawaii's Big Island

Ready to make your home on the Big Island of Hawaii? The Big Island is an unrivaled declaration of the power of nature--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. It's simply dramatic!

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 of the other Hawaiian Islands combined, its sheer size can be intimidating. You’ll find all but two of the world's climate zones within this island’s shores.

The striking size and scope of the largest Hawaiian Island create a microcosm of environments and activities. You’ll find everything from extravagant resorts and incredible golf courses to modest local towns and sacred Hawaiian historical sites, from the birthplace of King Kamehameha I to Hawaii’s first missionary church in Historic Kailua Village (Kailua-Kona). The Big Island does not run short of attractions to offer. Learn more about the Big Island lifestyle.
