America's most diverse climate from sunniest to rainiest

Hawaii's Big Island is home to two of the world's tallest mountains rising from the ocean floor, the world's most active volcano and 11 of the world's 13 climate zones. The island contains America's wettest area near Hilo and most Southern point.

The sun shines most days on the island's prettiest beaches on its West Coast, including Waikoloa Beach Resort with 10-20 inches of rain yearly. North toward Waipi'o Valley and around Volcano it can rain 300 inches yearly producing tropical rain forests and many spectacular waterfalls. Go early to catch a rainbow at Hilo's Rainbow Falls.

The Big Island is larger than all the other islands combined, about 4,050 square miles and growing daily. Kilauea's continual eruptions oozing lava into the sea have added 600 acres since 1983. It can be rainy and cool when exploring Volcanoes Nat'l Park and lava tubes up at 4000 feet elevation, so take a jacket. Check today's volcanic activity and weather before you go.
