Hawaii Island is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain, famous for active volcanoes, golf courses, scenic coastlines and endless natural wonders. Hawaii's temperate weather and breathtaking natural beauty make it the perfect getaway for the holidays. Whether you're walking on a black sand beach, snorkeling with manta rays, or horseback riding along the Kona Coast, holidays on the Big Island are second to none. Watch the long-running Kailua-Kona Christmas Parade, which runs through the city's streets and ends at the Coconut Grove Marketplace.
