Hawaii's Big Island is filled with energy. Polynesian legend claims the goddess Pele gave volcanic birth to the Islands of Aloha. Hawaii's Big Island is her latest and greatest creation, and it is still warm from its fiery birth. The Big Island is twice the size of its sisters combined, and growing every day as its active volcano, Kilauea, sends new land to a steamy meeting with the ocean 4,000 feet below. There are countless waterfalls feeding rainforests, and the landscape is more like that of a fantasy. There are massive black lava fields that remind you of the island's relative youth, and the numerous uncrowded beaches let you catch your breath amidst unspoiled beauty.
