Kailua-Kona International Airport (KOA)

Twice the size of all other Hawaiian islands combined, Hawaii Island, known as Hawaii’s Island of Adventure, offers experiences found nowhere else on Earth. Stroll along striking black- and green-sand beaches; view the erupting Kilauea volcano, one of the most active in the world; or play golf on courses that were once lava fields.

Hosting 266 miles of coastline, this lush island is home to two main cities: Hilo on the east coast and Kona on the west coast. Downtown Hilo offers an array of museums, galleries and performance venues, including beautiful orchid gardens. Set on the island’s lava-lined western coast, the sunny Kona district is home to Kailua-Kona’s popular shops, restaurants and nightlife, as well as King Kalakaua’s historic summer house.

Live In The Moment — Play, Dine & Shop

From lava-strewn deserts and snow-capped mountains to dense rain forests and tropical plantations, every imaginable outdoor activity is available on Hawaii Island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an unforgettable spectacle of simultaneous creation and eruption. Watch the landscape change before your eyes with a visit to this popular attraction and native Hawaiian sacred place. Hike the trails to discover cavernous volcano tubes, and, if you’re lucky, view an active lava flow close up.

A fun activity for the whole family is a visit to the Parker Ranch Center in Waimea, one of the largest cattle ranches
in the country. Here, everyone will enjoy wagon rides, and learn the ways of the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy). Other must-see activities include viewing the 442-foot Akaka Falls and the 80-foot Waianuenue (Rainbow Falls) in Wailuku River
State Park.

If you’re fascinated by history, don’t miss the largest restored temple in Hawaii, constructed in 1791 by Kamehameha the Great. And, the Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site gives you a glimpse of early Hawaiian culture, including temples, homes, burial plots and more.

A trip to Hawaii Island isn’t complete without celebrating at an authentic Hawaiian luau. Bring a hearty appetite to this fun and festive event, where you’ll dine on traditional Hawaiian food as you learn about Polynesian culture and watch hula dancers perform. Other dining options on the island are as vast as the landscape, from fine dining to laid-back
local eateries.

Kona is a charming place to spend a relaxing afternoon shopping. From Hawaiian quilts and jewelry to handmade glass and rare koa wood bowls, there are plenty of handcrafted keepsakes to choose from at local shops and farmer’s markets. Whether you’re trying on designer aloha shirts or discovering art inspired by Pele’s fire, leave extra room
in your suitcase for some mementos. And, don’t forget to bring home Kona coffee, macadamia nuts and other
local confections.
