In order to make browsing this website more intuitive, and to make the planning of your Big Island vacation more easy, we have split the Island of Hawaii into four zones (are you looking for Waikoloa?). These zones are centered on the – in our opinion – four “most worth while” cities on the Big Island, and are:
All localized information (such as activities, events and accommodation) is ordered in this way, and you can reach it through the “home” and “Destinations” menus on the top of this page.
Have a great time on the Big Island!
People that live on the Big Island (or repeat visitors) will notice that we do not include the Waikoloa region in this map. Waikoloa lies on the border of our “Kona” and “Waimea” districts (technically it is an ahupuaʻa (Hawaiian for subdivision) of the south Kohala district), and is known as the resort area of the Big Island.
Waikoloa is a beautiful part of the Big Island, with great (dry) weather, stunning beaches and breathtaking snorkeling beaches, and not a place that you should miss. You can therefore find plenty of mention of those beaches in the Kona and Waimea sections of our website.
