Why is Hawaii Island an Ideal Place for a Vacation?
We have vacationed on all the major islands in Hawaii and found Hawaii Island to have the best beaches, activities, and to be the most fun. Whether you are on a tight budget or looking for a luxury resort, you get more vacation for your money on Hawaii Island.
Hawaii Island is larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined and has twice as many things to do and see. The island is the least crowded with the best snorkeling, diving, fishing, swimming, and hiking. It has an erupting volcano, white sand beaches, turquoise bays, waterfalls, tropical jungles, and a warm tropical climate.
Visitors often underestimate how big the island is and how long it will take them to get to all the sights and activities. It helps to have a guide when planning a vacation and after arriving on Hawaii Island. We wrote Your Ideal Hawaii Island Vacation: A Guide for Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii to help people tour places around the island with maps, detailed descriptions, photographs, and driving directions. The book includes driving tours with estimated driving times to help plan exciting trips to beaches, coffee plantations, historic national parks, tropical gardens, waterfalls, the active volcano, and around the island. It also has walking tours for Hilo and Kona. We included interesting stories about the events and people who made Hawaii Island such a special place.
