Why is the Big Island worth a visit?

Hawaii is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful islands and yes, they belong to the United States.

As you may not know, Hawaii is made up of eight different islands. Some are more developed and famous than others. Most people who think of Hawaii respectively think of Honolulu, so it is one, if not the most visited city on the island of Oahu. Of the eight islands that make up Hawaii, we can think of three freehand.

Oahu, Maui and the Big Island. Oahu and Maui are the most visited.

Although they are the most visited and most famous, what most people may not know is that The Big Island (the island known as Hawaii) is the largest of all the other islands.

Being the largest, some may wonder why it’s not as popular as the others. However, this island may be the best kept secret.

Being the largest, is it worth a visit? It’s for peace and quiet, nature, beaches and atmosphere!

This island may not have the glamor or skyscrapers of most major cities; it has everything else and more. Hilo is the largest settlement on the Big Island and has significant tourism, though it’s not as much as you’ll find on the western side of the island. You will experience significantly cooler, rainier and less sunny weather, especially as it is in the mountains. You will see some of the most magnificent sites, waterfalls, (active) volcanoes, beaches and sugar plantations; it is also home to the Tsunami Museum. Perhaps one of the most amazing things to see is the Black Sand Beach (it’s black sand) located at Punalu Beach. There is also the green sand beach. Downtown there are shopping malls, restaurants, coffee shops, theaters, hotels, restaurants, and a farmer’s market.

Kona/Kailua – located on the western side of the island; like night and day, some might describe the difference between the two. Kona has more of a tourist feel. The main road is Ali I drive, located on the coast road and overlooking Kailua Bay. You can also see the cruise ships docked there. The weather here is sunnier and significantly warmer. Even if there is a rainy season, the sun comes back after an hour or two; you won’t find a washout or rain all day. Unlike Hilo, Kona has resorts, more swimming beaches, restaurants/bars, water sports, activities, a variety of shops, and a farmer’s market.

Kona being more touristy is more expensive than Hilo. However, both are worth a visit and you can enjoy yourself in both places. The Big Island is full of tranquility, beautiful landscapes, activities, relaxation and tourism. That’s what we look for in a vacation.

Oahu is known for infamous Waikiki Beach and big waves, and Maui for the most beautiful beaches.

Hawaii is the number one vacation spot; on the Big Island, you can experience the best of Oahu and Maui, which are well worth a visit. But, who knows, you might just end up loving it and making it your go-to spot.
