Big Island is similar to Maui yet so very different. Like Maui, it is volcanic, its landscape is covered in lush forests and its beaches are spectacular. However, witnessing the vastness of the lava-land driving across the island was my first and was indeed awe-inspiring. It is the largest and the youngest of all Hawaiian Islands. On this island, you can easily travel through a range of climatic conditions from tropical coasts to the snowy volcanic peaks. It is volcanically the most active island in Hawaii and its diverse topography is sure to leave you humbled and cheered.
