Also known as the Big Island, there are plenty of wide open spaces here! A tropical climate at sea-level but some peaks will have snow on during winter, it truly is a destination with four seasons in one day! Do not miss the opportunity to see a volcanic landscape - one of many adventures you can partake in here. Volcanoes National Park is one of the few places where you can actually see new land being created as molten lava plunges into the sea. The sudden meeting of hot rock and cool water creates a vast steam cloud that can be seen from miles away, but to see it after dark is even more impressive, glowing red against the black lava field and night sky. Also check out the west coast where you’ll find Kona, a cute little waterfront town that today is famous for its coffee and World Ironman championship. History wise, Hawai‘i was the last royal residence of King Kamehameha the Great, while at Kealakekua Bay is where Captain Cook first set foot on the island and where he was later killed.
