The Big Island — The largest of the Hawaiian islands, the aptly named Big Island offers adventure-inspiring topography: Surf at sea level and snowboard at 14,000 feet in the same day; hike and gawk at Kilaeua volcano’s wonderous molten lava; or drive along the lushly tropical Hamakua coast. Be sure to save an afternoon for one of the top-rated resort spas or golf courses.

Why Go

For adventure treks, active volcanoes, secluded beaches, and snow-capped mountains that add up to the ideal Hawaiian getaway.
