Flights to Big Island – The biggest Hawaiian island
Hawaii's Big Island is the biggest Hawaiian Island, over 4000 square miles of volcanic paradise fringed by stunning coloured sand beaches. Heaven. Take flights to Big Island and treat yourself to a holiday on an island that’s still growing. Like all of Hawaii Big Island is volcanic, formed by volcanic eruptions millions of year ago. Kilauea dominates the island, the planet’s most active volcano. Big Island’s real name is ‘Hawaii Island’ but nobody seems to call it that. Too confusing, we suppose. The islands’ recent tourist explosion means that flights to Big Island also land you in Hawaii's so-called Island of Adventure. Re-naming is endemic in Hawaii, just like at home. Once upon a time,North Yorkshire was North Yorkshire. Now it is carved up into little TV and history-related sections; Emmerdale Country, Bronte Country, Herriot country…
Big Island Flights – Hilo International airport
If you’re an island amongst islands, you rely heavily on your airports. OK, Big Island is quite big as Hawaii goes but, for a small place, it is well served with airports. If you’re on you holidays though, flights to Big Island will land you at Kona International Airport, at Keahole, a couple of miles from Hilo and seven or so from Kailua-Kona. The island’s also home to Upolu Airport and Waimea-Kohala Airport, both of which are smaller. Choose flights to Big Island and head for the main resorts along the dry, sunny Kohala Coast, protected in the rain shadow of the mountains. Head for Hilo itself or quiet Kailua-Kona. On Big Island you’ll enjoy deep sea fishing, hiking, horse riding, sailing, scuba diving and – of course – amazing golf.
