Famous for its sugar cane plantations
and Kona coffee, Hawaii has the fewest beaches, but
the best weather. Be sure to visit Parker Ranch, where
cowboys were branding steers back when the American
West was still untamed.
Hike the unforgettable black sand
beaches. Relax and recharge with shopping and dining in
Kona Village. Or view the spectacular eruptions that continue
to build the island at Volcanoes National Park.
With horseback riding, scuba diving,
snorkeling, golfing on absolutely spectacular courses,
and some of the world's most beautiful gardens -- The
Big Island of Hawaii is an arena of beauty, diversity
and constant change.
The Big Island of Hawaii is an
island of contrasts. As you explore the island, you'll
see jagged lava fields covered with new vegetation,
providing an amazing contrast of Hawaii's Big Island's
diverse landscape. To see the lava flow glowing at night
is an incredible experience you really shouldn't miss!
Yet the molten lava is just one of Hawaii's Big Island's
hot attractions - there are also cool shops in Kona,
coffee plantation tours, excellent golf on the Kohala
Coast, and the quaint town of Hilo, where you'll feel
as though you've gone back in time.
