Hawaii Island, also called Big Island, is the youngest of the Hawaiian Islands and also the largest. Strong and majestic, it offers an equally bold driving experience, from roadside stories that speak of a remarkable native culture to the infinite colors of nature’s paintbrush.
Home to Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys) and Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes, Big Island offers experiences found in no other place on earth. A variety of climatic zones, from seasonal snowcapped mountains to black sand beaches, stretch across its vast topography creating rich pockets of adventure for visitors to explore.
In Hawaiian, the term “holo holo” means to go for a walk, drive or a ride. So if your Big Island travels lead you on a holo holo down some almost forgotten byway, you know it was meant to be. In case you are wondering, a rental car is a must and we recommend Hawaii Car Rental.
The Kona Coast is the favored side of Big Island with more sun, water activities, golf and beaches. Honu Kai is centrally located on the Kona Coast and within minutes of a multitude of things to see and do, as well as, many shops and restaurants.
