Hawaii, the Island of Aloha also known as the Big Island, is the Hawaiian Island with it all. At 10,932 square miles, the Big Island dwarfs Maui and it's measly 750 square miles. Attractions aren't just "big", they are spectacular! From the black sand beaches of Puna to the snow-capped peaks of Mauna Kea and the volcanic eruptions at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Big Island offers Hawaii's most diverse geography (including the southernmost point in the United States) and some of the world's most mesmerizing natural sights. What better way to experience these adventures than on your own time and from your own private luxury villa.
These adventures on the Big Island are diverse and can be physical, recreational, or even spiritual. It's easy to immerse yourself in the culture of Hawaii's Big Island. Try dancing the hula and taking part in an authentic luau (feast). Head upcountry and discover the uniquely blended Hawaiian, Portuguese, and Mexican cultures - still alive and well among Hawaiian paniolo (cowboys) on the Island's giant ranches. Visit historical Kealakekua Bay where Captain James Cook dramatically lost his life in 1779. And don't miss Puukohola Heiau. This sacred spot was built in 1790 by King Kamehameha as an offering to the gods, where he asked for success in his campaign to unite the Hawaiian Islands. Likewise, Hawaii Hideaways' rental homes can be adventurous, spiritual or downright beachfront luxurious.
From world-class ballet to the Annual Kona Brewers Festival, Hawaii's Big Island offers a surprising assortment of things to do and concerts to watch. Some of the best hula competitions are held on Hawaii's Big Island each year, like the Merrie Monarch Festival in Hilo.
