THE BIG ISLAND
The Big Island is known for its fascinating historical sites, funky towns, coffee plantations and active volcanoe. You can visit National Parks where ancient temples and carved wooden images have been preserved providing a glimpse into traditional Hawaiian culture. The leeward side of the island is filled with deluxe resorts fit for a king while the interior contains most of the farm country and agriculture. Some of the world's most spectacular golf courses can be found here and you can visit Volcanoes National Park.
The don't call it the "Garden Isle" for nothing. This island blooms from one sparkling shore to the other with spectacular mountain scenery and peaceful beaches. Small, friendly, historic towns welcome visitors. Take a helicoptor to see the Napali coast to see the 3,000 foot cliffs or kayak to places like the Fern Grotto, a natural cave surrounded by lush hanging ferns. Many places of the island can only be reached on foot, by boat or by air so be prepared to be amazed.
