Along with the Big Island’s extensive amount of beautiful sites and fun activities, the island comes with very spiritual history. It’s believed that the Hawaiian goddess Pele and demi-god Kamapuaʻa, created a divide among the island that explains why the west is so dry and the east is so wet. Also, the island itself has 5 volcanoes, 4 of which are labeled as active. Mostly, the Big Island is known for its extraordinary diving, the many volcanoes, and the ever-popular Kona coffee blend. The nice sandy beaches and tropical palm trees make Hawaii a safe haven for visitors to come and relax or have some fun.

The Big Island of Hawaii is favored for the scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities it holds. The bright, clean, blue waters allow divers and snorkelers a clear view of the marine life and natural habitat that lie beneath the surface. Not only does Hawaii have large open waters for diving, but you can also visit various lava tunnels, ponds, and shorelines for a more unique diving experience. One of the most popular dive sites on the island is Two-Step. Two-Step in Honaunau Bay is located on the western part of the island. When waters are calm, you can expect to see pretty much the entire bay including the stunning coral reefs and all the sea animals and fish that live there. You might even get to see a sea turtle or dolphin in this area if you’re lucky!
