More than just beaches, the Big Island of Hawaii is famous for its culture, hiking and wildlife. From snow-capped peaks to sandy beaches, Hawaii’s diversity will take you by surprise.
Home to Kilauea Iki, the most active volcano on earth, the Big Island is a hiker’s dream come true. If wildlife is more your thing, keep an eye out for spinner dolphins and sea turtles as well as humpback whales during Winter.
Surprisingly un-touristy, it is hard not to immerse yourself in the culture. Whether it’s dancing the hula, creating a lei or learning how to catch fish the traditional Hawaiian way, you’ll leave feeling like a local.
Jetstar offers relatively inexpensive flights into Honolulu.
