Vacation Rental Areas on the Big Island

The Big Island

The Big Island is Hawaii's largest Island at 4,038 square miles and its total size is twice the size of all other Hawaiian Islands combined. The Island of Hawaii is built from five separate shield volcanoes that erupted somewhat sequentially, one overlapping the other. Due to the landscape the Big Island is the home to Parker Ranch, which is the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. The Parker Ranch, near the town of Kamuela, has approximately 480,000 acres of land. Ka Lae (to locals known better as "South Point") is the southernmost point in the US. There is a constant 27 knots wind that blows east to west, 24/7/365. The oceans around the South Point are very treacherous for this reason. The famous green sand beach is also located here.

The Beaches

The Big Island has some great beaches, and in many ways it’s a paradise for those that love to hang on the beach, sunbath, swim, snorkel, or cool down under the shades of palm trees. There are a few very interesting beaches on the south side of the island. It’s a bit of a drive from Kailua-Kona, but if you are up for the adventure it is quite the view. Hapuna Beach is rated the "Number one beach in America" by Conde Nast Traveler. The beach is located off of the Queen Kaahumanu Highway, a little bit south of the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. It’s a nice wide beach, about a half mile long and 200 feet deep.

Championship Golf

The Big Island of Hawaii has some of the most magnificent courses to choose from. Some are crafted by the biggest names in course design and the Big Island is often referred to as the “Golf Capital of Hawaii.” When you play the courses it will quickly become clear why. Just try to concentrate on your swing when the corner of your eye is quickly distracted by the pristine beauty of black lava-lined fairways and palm tree-speckled greens with rhythmic crashing waves just beyond the bunker. You'll be playing on one of the most beautiful golf courses you’ve ever seen.

Shielded from winds by Mauna Loa, south Kona’s calm and clear waters are perfect for snorkeling, diving and spotting dolphins and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles). Manta's Rays in HawaiiOne of Kona’s most memorable experiences is going on a manta ray boat tour to scuba or snorkel with these gentle, graceful sea creatures. Kona is also famous for its deep-sea fishing, hosting the International Billfish Tournament every year. And on land, don’t forget to travel to the cooler upland slopes of towns like Holualoa, where you can sample the distinctive flavors of 100% Kona coffee. Along the versatile Kona coast, you can find the adventures are as big as the island itself.
