Hawaii’s Big Island – The “Big Island” of Hawaii is (you guessed it) the largest of the Hawaiian Islands and offers a stunning array of beautiful scenery for you to explore. Check out the best sights and activities on the island, here!

When ready, browse vacation packages to Hawaii’s Big Island:

A #Hawaii #vacation means days filled with natural wonders: wander around a lava field, stroll through a tropical rainforest, and take a dip in the warm waters of the Pacific.

The Onomea Bay Scenic Drive, located along the Hamakua Coast, will take you past shimmering emerald rainforest and astonishing glimpses of the tranquil Pacific Ocean. It’s the perfect place to get some pictures and see what the beauty of Hawaii is really about.

No #tour of Hawaii’s Big Island is complete without meeting the sea turtles of Kahalu’u Bay. Strap on your snorkel and swim around the warm, blue-green waters of the bay to meet turtles and thousands of other sea creatures.

Try out paddleboarding, jet skiing, or a variety of other watersports. Alternatively, spoil yourself in the time-honored indulgence of relaxing on the black lava sands, soaking up some of the legendary Hawaiian sunshine.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.

  1. I lived here for a few months on a farm. Let me tell you, when he says no one in a hurry he isn't lying. Be humble and respectful. People care more about this great island than you can imagine. I have nothing but respect for this place. If you speak to natives and they get the right vibes they will tell you where to swim with wild dolphins and experience some really incredible vibes only found in a place like this. Ever seen a wild horse in the jungle?

  2. Is it a place only for vacation or settling and living life like doing a job and career !! What are the jobs in Hawaii..like career is it a place to live life peacefully…!!

  3. 2:35 "It is worth stopping by at this painted church when driving south to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park."

    Dang, the guy nailed it. I have been trying to say this park's name as fast as he was able to spit it out for the past hour, to no avail. If I am going to visit this place, I must say this right out of respect for how important this place was to the people. I mean, it would also be cool to make a park ranger's day by flawlessly pronouncing this. 😂

  4. \\ Please don't panic by history video with pandemic-induced human atrocities & wars during which about 200 Million of 500 Million World Population died when THIS GLOBE was less connected than today. America was unknown. Tourism except by wars, was absent. \\ WHO warns today all 180 UN COUNTRIES: THIS PANDEMIC MAY STAY. Hoping for the best PREPARING FOR THE WORSE, I DARE CHARGING 180-UN-COUNTRIES-LEADERS, MEDIA TOO: – DROP ALL – BUT ENSURE ALL, EVEN IF THAT ENDS UP ONLY AS A GLOBAL SURVIVAL DRILL, THAT TOGETHER, WE CAN DO MORE THAN TRY various vaccines, masks, social distancing & lockdowns, by SPREADING more than 2 billion global RESIDENCES as far as 100 meter apart/1-floor, 2021-2022 home units. \\ HOW? /// UNUSED, OFTEN STATE-OWNED SIDE LANDS OF GLOBAL ROADS & HIGHWAYS is the first target on which such units may be spread because all people survival is at stake today. \\ SKEPTICS: ESSENTIALS CAN'T BE SO-PROVIDED //// (1) SERVICE ISLANDS ~30 km apart, operate with restaurants, gas stations w. added pharmacies, groceries. ~Same on 2-4 lanes-roads, some passing near/in grand beaches, deserts, dunes, canyons, mountains, lakes, forests, (2) Some can happily be served by local FARMERS, who win Climate Credit for OLD-TYPE HORSE-VANS SERVING FRESH MILK, BREAD, EGGS, FRUITS, VEGIES, etc. especially to residents who do not drive, (3) Cities, even partially abandoned, may still provide the rest [cf. earlier comments]. \\ EXAMPLE? //// Operators of 29 of 30 SARI-SARI small shops, on sides of 2-4 lanes in the Philippines, may be given FREE LAND TITLES with water/electricity/sewers links to such standard UNITS located on huge numbers of UNUSED ROAD-SIDEWAYS-LANDS.
