Hawai'i Beaches- The Big Island:


The Island of Hawai’i is known by many names and has been experienced by many differing people and cultures through time. For purposes of clarity, it commonly referred to as the “Big Island of Hawai’i” or “The Big Island” in the english language.

The Big Island of Hawai’i is a volcanic island, located in the mid North Pacific Ocean, and is the eastern and most southern of the Hawaiian Island chain. It is home to two large mountains; “Mauna Loa” (13,677 feet above sea level) and “Mauna Kea” (13,796 feet above sea level), and comprises an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2). It is larger than all the other Hawaiian Islands – combined. Also, it is similar in land mass to the State of Connecticut in the United States of America. It is surrounded by thousands of miles of aqua blue and warm Pacific Ocean.

Rich naming traditions offered by the Hawaiian people provide us with the “Kona” side of the Island, which means the “leeward” or drier side of the Island, and the “Ko’olau” side of the Island, which is the “windward” or wetter and cooler side of the Island. Each of these two sides is divided into Regions that contain their own history and components that make them different, and essential to the land and beaches of Hawai’i.
