About the Island of Hawaii
Hawaii, the archipelago, is the most isolated group of islands on earth. The Island of Hawaii (sometimes referred to as the Big Island) is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and is also by far the biggest, providing a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. This is the home of one of the world's most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet – taller than Everest when measured from its sea floor base to its peak, (Mauna Kea), the most massive mountain in the world (Mauna Loa), the largest park in the state, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and the always sunny Kohala Coast. All but two of the world's climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful sandy beaches.
