Big Island Info

Aloha! Welcome!/KCV Videos

The Island of Hawaii is the largest island in the Hawaiian Island Chain and the least populated per square mile. The Big Island of Hawaii is the home of Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano, the picturesque Kona Coast, and where the famous Kona Coffee is grown on the slopes of Hualalai Volcano.

Nowhere in the world will you find such diversity, as here on the Island of Hawaii. As a result of the shielding effect of volcanic mountains and the differences in weather found at various elevations, there are as many different climate zones here as exist along the entire coast stretching from Alaska to Costa Rica. For the full impact of this, visitors need only explore the islands by car or helicopter and they’ll see the beauty of tropical rain forests, cool alpine regions, stony deserts and sunny beaches all within the span of just a few short miles.

The Big Island is known for its white, black and green sand beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters. Our Hawaiian playground offers virtually every activity under the sun from snorkeling and swimming to scuba diving, whale watching and deep sea fishing off the Kona Coast for the elusive 1000 ponder, along with unique adventures such as the Dolphin Quest educational encounter with the bottlenose dolphins or perhaps star gazing from the most famous observatories in the world on the summit of Mauna Kea. There are hikes and tours that include bird watching in the pristine Hakalau Forest on the slopes of Mauna Kea, or riding horses down in the lush Waipio valley. Dinner cruises and cocktail sails.
