Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook

“Hawaii The Big Island Revealed” is the #1 best-selling guide to everything there is to see and do on The Big Island. Author Andrew Doughty’s engaging and humorous writing style makes planning your visit almost as fun as it is to go explore pristine reefs and secluded beaches, stand on a mountaintop above the clouds, and marvel at fumes billowing out of an active volcano. The guidebook is full of candid, anonymous reviews about which businesses are best—and which to avoid. No advertisements. The 8th edition includes more restaurants, new hikes and new adventures, including (for the first time ever) where to swim with dolphins in the wild. Don’t waste time searching through hundreds of online reviews—order today.

Island Maps, Beaches, Resorts, Restaurants & more..

Our app differs from the books because the information changes literally every single day. When something out of the ordinary happens, such as an approaching hurricane, we can introduce a new chapter right to your app seamlessly and keep you up-to-date literally hour by hour. When the Big Island’s volcano was causing disruption to visitor plans, for instance, we were on it. And when things settled down, we completely revamped many sections and pushed them immediately to the app. (The app user doesn’t have to do anything, it happens automatically.)

The app is geo-aware so we have lots of additional technological features that aren’t possible with books as well as filters, favourites, etc. And the app has our custom-made geo-referenced maps that are huge with our readers.

Author’s Note

In all my travels, the Big Island of Hawai‘i is the most diverse place I’ve ever seen. This island literally has it all. Where else can you drive up to a snow-capped mountain of nearly 14,000 feet, then cruise down to a heavenly beach and snorkel in warm waters on an 85°F day? Exotic rain forests, stark lava deserts, crystal clear waters packed with fish, an erupting volcano, old Hawai‘i towns and modern out-of-this-world resorts. Swim with dolphins, hike around smoldering craters, luxuriate in decadent spas or roll around on a black or even green sand beach. I can—and do—go on and on. Live your dreams during your Big Island trip.

What Readers Have to Say

“We’ve been meaning to email you since we got home from our trip to Oahu in February and finally, we took the time! We’d never visited the island before so we went out to search for a guidebook. Loved yours immediately because of the beautiful photography but what was written inside was the most helpful and honest reviews and advice we’d found… We are going back in July and your book will be with us the entire time! When we hit a different island eventually, we’ll be buying your guide for that one too. Thank you.”
