all the other Hawaiian Islands combined,

The island of Hawai‘i offers stunning landscapes, from its black sand beaches and towering waterfalls to sacred sites and, of course, Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Home of the fire goddess Pele, Kīlauea Volcano is one of the most popular attractions across the state. At present, Kīlauea has two ongoing eruptions. Pu‘u‘ō‘ō has been erupting since January 1983, and Halema‘uma‘u Crater since March 2008.

the island of Hawaiʻi is home to one of

the most continuously active volcanoes

on the planet. Kīlauea continues to create

the newest land on earth—the island hasn’t stopped growing yet.

There’s plenty of room for visitors to take in this incredible diversity of terrain in

uninterrupted enjoyment. Though the

island is big, it’s not busy: While O‘ahu
