Hawaii

the big island

It is on the island of Hawai'i that the first Polynesians settled some 2,000 years ago.

At more that twice the size of all the other islands combined,

the "Big Island" contains 11 of the 13 known climatic zones of the world.

Here you will find world class golf courses, active lava flows, incredible waterfalls and magnificent resorts.

One of the options to see the island's volcano Mauna Loa, is by helicopter. Flights are from Hilo airport.
