中西南北东Located in the middle of the North Pacific, the Hawaiian Islands comprise more than 130 islands from southeast to northwest, and are an archipelago that stretches over 2,400 kilometers. Hawaii Volcano National Park (HVN) is a national park in Hawaii, USA. The best way to see it is to take a helicopter, starting at about 1500 renminbi, with several companies doing the business and making pre-booking assignments.

Botanical Garden
Terry KMust see! This is really a magical and spiritual place with a giant assortment(s) of tropical flowers in natural settings. Part jungle, gardens, and oceanfront views. If I only had time to do ONE thing while on this side of the island, I'd do this.

Beach
M30***41Be prepared for a hike over the lava flows to reach this beautiful beach. The drive is very bumpy so drive very slow. The hike keeps the crowds way, beautiful sand,swimming is safe as long as the water is calm. Make sure to pack your picnic basket with necessities.

Island/Peninsula
guanren2000The Big Island of Hawaii is a paradise. Everything here is very big, the cars are very big, the trees are high, and the mountains are high. The volcano park is very shocking, this still developing island. People live very freely. Every afternoon, many people come to surf on the beach next to my homestay. Hilo rains heavily in the middle of the night, and usually the sun shines again the next day. Mauna Kee is really good looking at the stars, and the way up the mountain is like the moon. The mountain is so cold, I saw the Milky Way for the first time. Back all the way down, the rainforest tree frog was calling again at the beach.

The Big Island (Hawaii island)
Hawaii, USA’s 50th state, is not just another American state. In fact, the place is known for its gorgeous beaches and beautiful climate. Besides from being situated in a beautiful location, Hawaii is also known for its weather which is unlike any other state in the USA. From friendly locals to diverse cultures, Hawaii has something for everyone. While planning a trip to Hawaii, one has to first decide which island they want to visit. Tourists have to make a choice between seven or eight major islands and it surely isn’t an easy choice out of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, or Hawaii. Surely all the islands are worth a visit but let’s take a closer look at Honolulu, which is situated on the island of Oahu and is the capital of Hawaii. In Honolulu, one can enjoy everything from historical landmarks to pop-culture references. It stretches across the southeastern shores of the Oahu Island, from Pearl Harbor to Makapuu Point.

The Big Island (Hawaii island)
Hanauma Bay, in Hawaii, is best known for its snorkelling, shallow waters, calm beaches, and stunning white sand. Located to the eastern side of Oahu, it is a very old volcanic crater that is well protected from swells and oceanic waves, leaving it one of the most peaceful and colourful places for beach lovers to snorkel. This makes Hanauma Bay the hottest destination in Hawaii.

The Big Island (Hawaii island) Travel Tips

About The Big Island (Hawaii island)

You might know that it as Waimea, but the post office didn't. When the post office demanded all towns in a state had their own name, Waimea, Maui kept its designation and Waimea on the Big Island went with the Hawaiian version of Samuel, chose for one of the town's favorite sons. Kamuela is a very different sort of Hawaiian vacation experience. Think cowpoke and ranch hands vs. beaches and mai tais. The interior town has several stunningly beautiful hotels and nine golf course, and where else on Hawaii could you tour a working cattle ranch?
