O'ahu to The Big Island Travel Guide

Island-hopping among the Hawaiian Islands is one of the best ways to get a sense of the subtle differences between each island. If you're flying in from the mainland, you're probably landing in Honolulu, but from there, you can easily catch a quick flight to visit Hawaii, commonly known as the Big Island. The Big Island is home to five volcanoes, including Kilauea and Mauna Loa in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, both of which are active. The Big Island is also the source of some of the best coffee in the world, as well as stunning beaches along the Kailua-Kona coastline. Getting there by air is easy if you're already in the Hawaiian Islands.

You have a choice of volcanoes when you visit the Big Island - how often can you say that on vacation? Head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you might even find some snow in the heart of winter, and consider renting bikes to speed all the way back down to sea level. When it gets hot down at the beach, go back up into the high valleys of Waimea, where you'll see actual cowboys at work. Along the Kohala Coast, you'll have to choose between perfect beaches and golf courses with ocean views, and if you visit in the fall, don't miss the annual Ironman competition.

As beautiful as Oahu is, getting to other islands can be the highlight of a Hawaiian vacation. Check out our smart search engine to find your best flights between Honolulu and the Big Island.
