Hawaii Island Travel Guide
Articles, general information and resources for visitors to the island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island of Hawaii. Includes the island's visitor attractions, activities, lodging, dining, events, and transportation options.
The island of Hawaii is often called "The Big Island" to distinguish it from state of Hawaii, which has the same name. It is the largest of the Hawaiian islands, and its area (4028 square miles) is more then twice the size of all of the other islands combined. The island was formed from five major volcanoes, and exploring those volcanoes is one of the most popular activities on the Big Island.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the only Hawaiian island that still has an active volcano and the national park surrounding that volano is among the the most visited attractions on the island. Most of the island's hotels and resorts are in the North Kona and South Kohala regions on the west coast, but there are smaller hotels, bed and breakfast inns, youth hostels, and vacstion rentals on all parts of the island.
