The Big Island is the Big Island no more. In all likelihood, if you call it that people still know where you are talking about. But the largest island in the Hawaiian island chain is undergoing a rebranding. Local would like us to now call the island by its official name, Hawaii Island. This suggests it is the grandest of all the islands, and it surely is. The 4,000 square miles that make up Hawaii Island are so packed with beauty and uniqueness that it easily overwhelms your senses. Snowcapped mountains, black and green sand beaches, white sand beaches, jungle, desert, rainforest, it can all be found right here. And the volcanoes stand watch over it all. There is more climate here than almost any one other place on earth. Hawaii Island has it all! The whole island is a playground to explore and enjoy – one that’s fun for the kids and the adults.
