Our Hawaii Drive Guide Island Maps will help you find your way around the island – from snowy mountains to fiery volcanoes.
The island of Hawaii always impresses. Approaching the size of Connecticut and nearly 14,000 feet in height, Hawaii is understandably called “The Big Island.” The landscape defies logic with snow-capped mountains, erupting volcanoes, misty pastures, tropical coastlines fringed in waterfalls and black-sand (even green-sand!) beaches. Coffee farms, sleepy fishing and plantation villages, and world-class resorts temper the island’s wildness.
The beauty of the Big Island runs from classic tropical paradise to the stark ruggedness of primordial Earth. Here are our top five scenic landscapes you simply have to see when you come to the Big Island.
- Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
- Hamakua Coast/Waipio Valley
- Punaluu Beach
- Akaka Falls
- Kapoho Tide Pools
