Big Island EDITOR'S PICKS
Top 15 Things You MUST Do on the Big Island!
Big Island is a treasure trove of unique activities, offering things that can rarely be found anywhere else. Home to Kilauea, one of the few continuously active volcanoes on Earth, no trip to the Big Island would be complete without a stop by Hawaii Volcanoes National Park for a chance to see flowing lava. But don't stop there. The Big Island is, well... big. There are vast stretches to be explored, to ride ATVs through or zipline over, and gorgeous coastlines to kayak or swim with mantas in.
15Activities
