Having traveled and lived all over the world, and from what I have seen and experienced, I have to say...the Big Island's active Hawaii lifestyle is pretty amazing!
Nowhere else can you hike an active volcano, explore hidden valleys of waterfalls, swim with exotic marine life, and enjoy a sunset at the beach – all in one day.
For the adventurer and explorer at heart, the Big Island is a true paradise. Whether you are relatively new to the outdoors, a weekend warrior, or an avid adventure seeker, opportunities to get outside and live a healthy, active Hawaii lifestyle are endless.
This section provides a general overview of some of the outdoor sports & activities the Big Island is best known for. Most are easily accessible for everyone to experience and enjoy, including triathlon, surfing, hiking, swimming, running, and cycling.
Of course, there is much more, such as golf, tennis, paddling, sailing, diving, and snorkeling - which will soon get their own section here as well - so stay tuned.
In the meantime, have some fun out there. Hawaii is one heck of a playground!
