The Big Island's north end is a long drive from anywhere, but it can be a memorable adventure. Known as the gateway to the Pololu Valley, Kohala is also home to many diverse beach parks and historical sites. The towns of Hawi and Kapaau give visitors options for recharging on a trip up north.
The city of Kailua-Kona and the resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, and Waikoloa are all located in the western part of the Big Island. This sunny region with world-class beaches is where most vacationers stay when visiting the Big Island.
The southern part of the Big Island has remote beaches plus an amazing black sand beach and a rare green sand beach. This district known as Ka'u is wild and wonderful at the same time.
The eastern side of the Big Island around the city of Hilo is covered in lush rainforest. It's not known for sandy beaches, but the coastal parks and waterfalls are gorgeous destinations.
