Hawaiian legend says the goddess Pele gave volcanic birth to the Hawaiian Islands. The Big Island was the last andlargest child, still growing and receiving much of the attention today. Its most active volcano, Kilauea, still sends lava into the ocean to this day, forming new land, and is considered by many to be a most sacred site. However, volcanoes are only part of the naturally awesome landscape. With 11 of the 13 climate zones in the world, it’s possible to go from snow-covered mountains to warm, sunny beaches in just an hour’s drive. For a true sampling of the island’s diversity though, we recommend letting someone else do the driving. Big Island tours are the only way to go,The Grand Circle Island tour being the most complete. Volcanoes National Park is on the tour, of course, and is the perfect place to learn about, and see the results of, Pele’s hard work. You’ll also make a stop at historic Volcano House nestled in Ohia forest, on the edge of the steaming Kilauea Crater, and visit lava tubes and steam bluffs. Parker Ranch lands and orchid nurseries offer a completely different perspective. Punaluu Black Sand Beach is one of many Big Island beaches made from ground lava, but perhaps one of the most beautiful. You’ll find that many Hawaiian sea turtles think so, too. Also on your tour is quaint Kailua-Kona Town with its shops and restaurants lining both sides of the street. The Kona coast itself may be bestappreciated from a cruise boat, in which case you’ll want to look into Captain Beans’ Cruises. They offer a dinner cruise on a double-hulled catamaran that doubles as a fun-filled ride you’ll never forget. The Hawaii Volcano Special is your tour if you prefer to stay Hilo side and focus on Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kilauea Iki Crater, and the scenic drive past waterfalls and gardens. Not to worry, among its unspoiled beauty, the Big Island will always let you stop and catch your breath…until it is stolen once again.
