We say the Big Island is 'big'- and we mean it! It is an island of such proportions that all of the other islands in the main Hawaiian chain could fit inside it twice. Sitting in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the landmass of the Big Island is approximately the same size as the state of Connecticut, about 4,050 square miles, and is still growing daily thanks to Kilauea Volcano on the eastern coast of the island.

With so many different climate zones and vastly different landscapes to explore, it can be hard to decide which part of the island to visit. Browse the regions below and learn about the many things to do, what to expect, and the diverse attractions of the island.
