See And Do
Hawaii is a destination really geared towards stargazing; boasting 90% clear nights and a total of 13 large telescopes on the summit of Mauna Kea alone. The surrounding ocean cuts down on artificial light pollution and leads to better, more stable stargazing conditions.
The southern and smaller two of the Big Island's volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Kilauea jointly constitute, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, thirty miles from Hilo and eighty miles from Kona.
Hula was born on Hawaii and the biggest festival takes place each spring on the Big Island.
