Hawaii Island Activities

Double Lines

No other island gives you a place to swim with manta rays, horseback ride, and whale watch, all on the same visit. No other island lets you see a fiery volcano, a 420-foot waterfall, and a black sand beach. No other island offers so many cultural treasures in so many varying environments, whether you’re visiting Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park in sunny Kona, taking photos with the original King Kamehameha Statue in Kapaau near lovely Hawi, or walking through Nahuku (Thurston Lava Tube) in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You’ll see why the Big Island is known as “Hawaii’s Island of Adventure.” Browse the links below to see all that Hawaii Island has to offer.
