Living on Hawaii Island

Hawaii Island is the youngest and biggest island in the state (hence its nickname, "The Big Island") and is home to 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones—the only place in the world with so many in close concentration. It’s a special place, to say the least. You might be surprised to find the contrast of snow-capped Mauna Kea in the winter against the otherwise tropical setting. But no matter what time of year, the summit of Mauna Kea is a go-to favorite spot for watching the sunset and sticking around to stargaze. Along with its white sandy beaches, you’ll also find a natural green sand beach and black sand beach on Hawaii Island. Around every turn, there’s something new to explore, from lookout points overseeing green valleys to botanical gardens, waterfalls and farmer’s markets. You could spend your days on hiking trails, exploring a lava tube, or visiting a farm for authentic and wildly-popular Kona coffee.
