Hawaii - Hawai'i, The Big Island (Chapter)
This is the Hawaiʻi, the Big Island chapter from Lonely Planet’s Hawaii guidebook.
If you’re lucky enough, you might see lava pouring into the ocean next to black rock cliffs as the wind howls overhead here. And yet, the Big Island isn’t just where raw creation occurs. Eight of the world’s 13 climate zones exist here, encompassing lava deserts, emerald jungle, paradisaical valleys, snowcapped mountains, coral forests and an enchanting population of locals, hippies, transplants and more.
