Hawaii's Big Island
It's easy to see how Hawaii got the nickname of the Big Island. But it could have just as easily been called the Wild Island. Or Lava Island. Or Black Beach Island. The list goes on. The island of Hawaii is the only island where you can experience 11 different climate zones, black and green sand beaches and walk in the footsteps of Hawaiian royalty. Here are just a few "must sees" when visiting Hawaii’s Big Island: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea, Waipio Valley and Puukohola Heiau.
