Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook

All New! 9th Edition

Discover The Big Island, the island that has it all, with the Hawai’i travel book of your dreams. You’ll get details on sights that can’t be missed, and a chapter on every single beach on the island (even the hidden ones!); all plotted on 35 specially-created maps in an easy-to-follow format, so you know exactly where to go. This travel book has information on the more famous sights such as the Kilauea Volcano and the highest point on the island Mauna Kea, as well as scores of other real gems listed nowhere else. Hawaii’s “Big Island” isn’t just for stopping and smelling the hibiscus, it’s for adventurers who want to explore untamed lava tubes, swim with dolphins, and night dive with manta rays. At the end of a long day of exploring, you deserve a resort that lives up to its promises, as well as an unforgettable island dining experience (think lu’aus or dinner cruises). The best part, there are absolutely no advertisements in this book. We’ve reviewed each of these places anonymously so you can trust everything you read. This Hawai’i travel book is the most worthwhile investment you can make for your Big Island vacation. Whether you are a first time visitor or a long time kama‘aina, you will find out more about the Big Island from this guidebook than from any other source.

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. Want to read about a particular beach? At the top of the description is what ocean conditions will be like that day. 5.0 Star Ratings on the App Store. Read Reviews here.

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 have used your guides for years on Hawaii, Kauai and Maui… now for the first time we are using the App! We LOVE the interactive maps and the “on the go” ease no matter where we are on the island. Tonight when our manta ray trip was cancelled last minute, we had to find somewhere to eat in the Kona area. Yep, once again our app was there for us!… Thanks for years of accurate information and directing us to the sights, adventures and eateries that make our Hawaii trips come alive. We would miss a lot and our trips wouldn’t be the same without our trustworthy guides!”
