Hawaii Island – Shoreline to Summit

Hawaii Island is just over 4,000 square miles – nearly the size of Connecticut. Twice the size of all other Hawaiian Islands combined, it is the southernmost island in the chain and the southernmost point in the United States. You’ll find all but two of the world’s climatic zones on this one dramatic island. It is the most ethnically diverse county in the United States and one of the most geographically isolated places in the world. The summit of Mauna Kea rises nearly 14,000 feet and provides the world’s premier astronomical site.
