Hawaii: the Big Island

The Island of Hawaii is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and is also by far the biggest, providing a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. This is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). All but two of the world’s climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches.

Some of Hawaii Island's most breathtaking and accessible waterfalls like Akaka Falls can be discovered along the northeastern coast of the island, along the Hilo and Hamakua Coast.

In 1816, John Palmer Parker, a western rancher and advisor to Kamehameha, married royal granddaughter Kipikane and was awarded two acres of land for $10.
Today it is one of the world’s largest privately-owned cattle ranches: 150,000 acres raising 30,000 head of prime Angus and Charolais beef cattle.

Located on the coast of Honaunau Bay in south Kona, Puuhonua o Honaunau immerses you in Hawaiian culture. This 180-acre national historic park was once the home of royal grounds and a place of refuge for ancient Hawaiian lawbreakers.

They remained there for 2 centuries and built into one of the most fortified cities in Europe. The citadel of Rhodes, is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe which in 1988 was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1912 Italian troops took the island over with the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, and established an Italian colony which lasted until the end of WWII. The Italians would later demolish the houses that were built on and around the city walls during the Ottoman era. They also reconstructed the Grand Master's Palace. Lyndos is about 55 km south of the town of Rhodes and its fine beaches make it a popular tourist and holiday destination. less

It is flanked by the world-famous Diamond Head and the East Coast Cliffs. Hanauma, the "Curved" bay was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967. Waiki Beach is Hawaiian for "Sprouting Water". This is one of the most famous beaches in the world. The two mile stretch of white sand coast is fronted by hotels and tourist facilities. This historic 15-block district is reported to be the oldest "Chinatown" in the United States, dating back 120 years. The Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour commemorates the USS Arizona destroyed during the attack and the death of its 1,177 her crew. On the Eastern side of the island are great endless beaches like Kuhloa Beach Park and Waimanalo Beach. Haleiwa was established by missionaries in 1832. In 1899 with the building of the Haleiwa Hotel and the O'ahu Railroad, the town began to grow and thrive. Today, this quaint town is a mecca for surfers. There is the Haleiwa Surf Museum and Strong Current Shop that specializes in longboards and surfboards designed by North Shore legends, Dick Brewer and Mike Diffenderfer. less

The Hotel was built on a hilltop on the plan of the ancient masseries, the old apulian farmhouses as a comfortable 4 star resort, a few steps from one of the most pristine seas in Italy. Like the old farmhouses it has its own orchard where seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown for its kitchen. Their family restaurant on the beach right below the hotel is a hot spot and serves the freshest local sea food. From San Gregorio one can hire a boat to ride along the coastline which is dotted with Paleolithic caves and endless coves for bathing. The trip continues to Leuca and its lighthouse. This is the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Ionian sea and the Adriatic sea meet. If one is in the mood for culture the city Lecce is very close by. This is a jewel of a baroque city with dramatic architecture and a lively scene. Highly recommended. 73053 Loc.
