Hawaii's 'Big Island' is almost double the size of the region's main islands combined and is home to a diverse climate and wild geography. Famous for the active volcanoes which make up the island; Kilauea in the east is the world's most active volcano, increasing the land mass each day as molten lava flows into the ocean. Kilauea attracts tourists from all over the world with the Volcano National Park the islands most popular attraction. Scenic flights and night time tours are available for adventure-takers.
The west coast of the island, known as the Kona Coast, features dry and sunny conditions year-round. Landscapes of black lava rock and tropical flora offer spectacular scenes while myriad beaches and cultural attractions such as Kealakeku Bay (the site where Captain Cook was killed) give tourists plenty to see and experience.
The Kona Coast is also home to a lively shopping and resort district. Juxtaposed against the sea of coffee plantations that sprawl across the region, the Kona Coast supports over 100 coffee farms which produce and offer complimentary samples and tours of their coffee.
With such a diverse climate and terrain, the Big Island is popular with hikers and adventurers alike. One of the most challenging island treks, the Crater Rim Trail starts from the Kilauea Visitor Centre and follows the rim of the volcano for 18 km. This day-long trek is a must for hiking enthusiasts. Other activities available on the island include kayaking, sailing, whale watching, big game fishing, horseback riding, hiking, heli tours and scenic tours.
