Why rent a vacation home on the Big Island, Hawaii

The Island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island, is the largest and youngest island of Hawaii, and in the U.S. The island’s total land area of 4,028 square miles is almost twice as large as all the other Hawaiian islands combined, and continues to grow. Formed by five volcanoes, the island is home to spectacular sites and eleven of the world’s thirteen climate zones climate zones. Due to the elevations and shielding effects of two volcanoes, you can experience snow-capped heights, tropical forests, deserts, and grasslands all in one day.

Many visitors head to the Big Island to escape the confines of Oahu and Maui. For those looking for space and privacy, renting a vacation home here is a great option. Here are some of the things you can look forward to during your stay in a Big Island rental:

  • Feel the heat of the Big Island’s volcanoes The Big Island is only getting bigger: home to the Hawaiian Islands’ only active volcanoes, lava flows regularly here, expanding the island’s size. The volcano Kilauea, on the south-eastern side of Hawaii, is one of the most active in the world, central Mauna Loa is the largest active volcano in the world, and dormant Mauna Kea to the north is the tallest mountain in the world when measured from its base on the seafloor. It’s easy to arrange a tour to any of these volcanoes and see the lava flowing for yourself.
  • Find your own private beach The beaches on the Big Island sprawl for miles, and with fewer tourists here than on the other islands it’s far easier to find a secluded stretch of sand. Plenty of vacation rentals here are built right on the beach, allowing guests to walk straight into the crystal-clear water. But what really sets the Big Island apart is its sheer variety of beaches. New Kaimu Black Sand Beach is a newly-forming beach at the site of the old Kaimu Beach, which was buried under 50 foot lava flows in the 1990s. Elsewhere on the island, Papakolea or ‘Green Sand Beach’ is one of the only green sand beaches in the world, where tiny green stones mix in with the yellow sand to give it an otherworldly hue. Hapuna Beach, meanwhile, is the Big Island’s largest and features a wide expanse of golden sand and brilliant blue water.
  • Take a hike The Big Island is one of the most incredible hiking destinations in the world. The Kilauea Iki hike will take you past amazing volcanic sights, from a crater rim to a cinder cone to plains of smoking crevices. The Muliwai Trail to Waimanu Valley trail is another great hike with incredible views of the Waipio Valley
