Summer Hotspot: Hawaii's Big Island



With summer temperatures that rarely climb over 90 degrees and just as infrequently drop below 70 degrees, Hawaii's Big Island is an automatic summer hotspot in terms of climate. But aside from the perfect weather, the Big Island brings plenty more to your vacation experience for summer 2012. There's a lot to explore on the Big Island. Volcanoes, waterfalls, various shades of sandy beaches, trails and numerous other outdoor activities make the Big Island a big win for nature lovers. With increased flights for 2012 from the Continental US to Kona, it's now easier than ever to get there. Alaska & Hawaiian Airlines began daily non-stop service from San Jose and Oakland, California to Kona.

The Big Island is the biggest island within the Hawaiian Islands. Spanning 4,028 square miles, The Big Island, formally referred to as Hawaii Island, is bigger than all of the other Hawaiian islands combined. Home of five volcanoes, this island is the go-to spot if you want to see lava in action. Waterfalls are abundant and beach sand comes in white, black, green, gray and several shades in between. Adventurers flock to the island for hiking, biking, backpacking, camping, surfing and snorkeling (and these activities are just the beginning of a long list).
