Islands

Hawaii’s Big Island
To avoid confusion with the name of the entire state, the Island of Hawaii is often called the “Big Island,” and what an appropriate name it is. Nearly twice as big as all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined, its sheer size can be intimidating and it isn’t just big, it’s still growing. Hawaii’s Big Island is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and provides a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. It is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes, the tallest sea mountain in the world, and the most massive mountain in the world as well as the largest park in the state. You’ll find all but two of the world’s climatic zones within this island’s shores generating everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a journey off the beaten path, you’ll discover it all on Hawaii’s Island of adventure.

Explore the island via land, sea or air, discover 50-miles of heavenly beaches from Poipu Beach to Hanalei Bay and experience settings you’ve only dreamed about. Being draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs, aged by time and the elements, the oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is sometimes called the “Garden Isle”. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls and some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination. Beyond Kauai’s dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. Kayak the Wailua River. Snorkel on Poipu Beach. Hike the trails of Kokee State Park or even go ziplining above Kauai’s lush valleys. It is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns and along its one-lane bridges that make it truly timeless.

Cool/Dry Season
November – April

Wave action varies dramatically between island coasts and seasons. Summer waters are typically gentle on all beaches. During the winter on many north shore beaches, Pacific storms drive ocean swells towards the islands, creating Hawaii’s legendary big waves. Wave conditions are often very localized, so if the waves are too big on your beach, you can usually find calmer water at a more sheltered beach. Strong currents can make any beach unsafe at any time during the year, particularly in the winter
