Hawaii's Big Island is best known for its wide-open spaces, uncrowded landscapes and adrenaline-fuelled adventure opportunities.
The western Kohala Coast is the sunniest in the USA, while the interior has brilliant stargazing and even glacier skiing. The Kilauea Volcano has been erupting since 1983 - a unique experience is to take a boast ride to watch lava sliding into the ocean.
The Big Island is also favoured for its Kona coffee plantations (Kona is one of the most expensive in the world) and green and black beaches. With 11 of the world's 13 eco-systems on the islands it's certain you'll find something to your taste.
