Travel off the beaten path to a mystical oasis that charms honeymooners with its tranquility and welcoming aloha spirit. Twice the size of Hawaii's other islands combined, the Big Island encompasses 11 of the world's climate zones, so you can experience snow-capped mountains, lush rain forests and jet-black beaches all in one trip, without having to fly to different continents. The temperature rarely fluctuates (it's always about 75 - 90 degrees Fahrenheit), so you're guaranteed sunny skies and refreshing breezes year-round. Whether you're drawn makai (seaward) or mauka (inland, towards the mountains) you won't be able to resist the isle's magnetic pull towards adventure.
