Hawaii Island Holidays

Visit the world's most active volcano

Home to paradisiacal jungle, snowy mountains and coral kingdoms; Hawaii Island is not just the largest of the archipelago but also the most naturally beautiful.

Despite being the youngest in the island chain, Hawaii Island, also known as the Island of Hawaii or Big Island; is remarkable not just for its size but for its ever-changing landscapes. From erupting volcanoes in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to teeming oceans feeding on the nutrient rich waters and black, white and even green-sandy beaches; Hawaii Island reveals the ultimate power of nature. Make memories to last a lifetime and snorkel with manta rays along the Kona Coast, explore the rainforests in the Hilo region and relish the beauty of the Rainbow Falls in Wailuku River State Park. Why would you ever want to come home?

With the rest of Hawaii just a short flight away, now is the ideal time to island hop. Swap the dramatic vistas of the Island of Hawaii with Oahu’s surfing hotspots, or head to Maui to explore the famous Road to Hana. To truly enhance your travels, why not stopover en route to explore sunny California in San Francisco and Los Angeles, or even breathtaking Canada for a spot of adventure?

General Manager

"Take a tour of a coffee farm and you then get the chance to roast your own coffee beans to your own taste - it was delicious, and I even got to design my own label."
