Hawaii has a rich history of Polynesian Voyaging, and the many artifacts found in Hawaii are evidence of their long voyages. The Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic activity, and most of the islands are just under one million years old. The Big Island (Hawaii) is 4,028 km (1,563 square miles); this was formed from seven volcanoes that became active in succession from east to west. This island is also home to Mount Mauna Kea, one of the world’s highest mountains and many observatories.
The Kona Coast
On the Big Island of Hawaii, Kona offers some fantastic views across the Pacific Ocean, where you can watch whales play during their migration season. Different lookout points provide a unique 360-degree view of the ocean.
The Hamakua Coast
The Hamakua Coast offers some of the most beautiful coastlines in the state, and with very few houses on it, you will feel as if you have escaped to your private island. The natural beauty of this area makes it a popular tourist spot. The road from Kailua-Kona to the Hamakua Coast is one of the best roads to ride while riding your motorbike, and there are lush green mountains and acres of verdant green fields alongside stretches of the blue sea. Furthermore, this area provides such an incredible view as you can see across all the islands, including Oahu to Maui.
The Ka Lae Coast

This coastline starts from Honolulu and runs down to Waikiki Beach and Kailua-Kona, this area has a lot of great beaches lined up along it, so whatever you are looking for in terms of activities or just for a good time by the beach, this is the place to go. There are also some great mountains that you can look at from here; some of the views from up there make it one of the most amazing places to go in Hawaii.
The North Shore of Oahu
This part of Oahu has excellent beaches and many beautiful places, including Kapiolani Park, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and many other locations. This area is suitable for surfing and people who want to do any water sports will also love this part. However, if you are looking for a sunny beach, it will not be as good as other parts of the island because it gets very windy.
