Hawaii (The Big Island) Links Directory and Travel Resources

(The Big Island, Hawaii - HI, USA)

Hawaii's aptly named Big Island is actually almost twice as big as the state's other islands, when combined together. This therefore means that visitors will find a huge amount to occupy any vacation here. Interestingly, the coastline is continuing to expand, due to frequent volcanic activity.

There are beaches galore on Hawaii's Big Island, such as those found at Hookena, Kahaluu, Kahuwai Bay, Kua Bay, Makalawena and Waialea, amongst many, many others. Whale and dolphin cruises will likely be a highlight of any trip, while other distractions include the Akaka Falls State Park, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the observatories of Mauna Kea Mountain and the Panaewa Rainforest Reserve, as well as a number of museums, including both the Kona Historical Society and the Pacific Tsunami museums.
