The Big Island (Kona)
The Big Island is officially known as the island of Hawaii and received this nickname for a good reason: it is the largest island of the United States. It’s one the most popular travel destinations, attracting between 1.5 and 1.7 million travelers each year. Boasting some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, the island is as diverse as it is gorgeous, with lush green forests, black lava fields at the base of volcanoes, and the mighty Pacific Ocean serving as your playground. Magical Hawaii is truly a travelers dream and a must-have on your bucket-list. Outdoor adventurists who love being in nature will be awed by the majestic overlooks, hidden waterfalls, and snorkeling with sea life.
This vibrant gathering place continues to be a top destination for visitors from all corners of the world. Travelers delight in the international flavor of Honolulu with its first-class shopping and dining, while a visit to the North Shore, where surfing is life is a must for beach lovers. That’s where you’ll find the world’s largest surfing championship in the Bonsai Pipeline. Oahu is a diverse island with temples and cultural centers honoring centuries of Polynesian history while embracing the 21st century with modern conveniences and high-rise condominiums surrounded by emerald green mountain ranges and liquid blue waters.
