Big Island Travel Guide
Introduction to Hawaii Island for Visitors

The island of Hawaii is often called "The Big Island" to distinguish it from the state of Hawaii, which has the same name. It is the largest of the Hawaiian islands, and its area (4028 square miles) is more then twice the size of all of the other islands combined. The island was formed from five major volcanoes, and exploring those volcanoes is one of the most popular activities on the Big Island.
