Best Things to Do on Hawaii Island
The youngest and largest Hawaiian island is the story of Hawaii’s creation – literally. Millenia younger than its sister islands, Hawaii Island – known as the Big Island – continues to grow as molten lava pours forth and adds to this awe-inspiring island.
The island’s youth offers a rare chance to experience a different kind of Hawaii. Visitors to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on our tour can view an active, smoldering crater; and learn how these volcanoes gave birth to Hawaii. The isle’s black sand beaches are the color of cooled lava, and are common nesting sites for sea turtles.
As primeval as the volcanoes are, there are also contemporary pleasures. Sweet papayas, aromatic coffees, and exotic florals are all grown on the Big Island, where the rich volcanic soil offer fertile grounds for island agriculture. The island’s excellent ocean waters are wonderful for fishing, sailing, diving and swimming with graceful manta rays. You can enjoy the beauty of Rainbow Falls, delight in locally made sweets, and explore fascinating historic sites including the birthplace of King Kamehameha I.

Hawaii Island is as powerful, wondrous, and real as life itself. May your visit be the same.
