There are over 100 volcanic islands in Hawaii. Due to the continuing volcanic activity of Kilauea, Hawaii’s Big Island continues to grow larger each year. Big Island offers a vast range of landscapes and climate zones, from jungle rain forests, to deserts, to mountains sparkling with snow. In celebration of Kona’s 183 year history of coffee propagation, the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival offers java lovers a coffee and art stroll, a cupping competition and tours of the farms and mills where the beloved dark beverage is produced. Five of Hawaii’s other volcanic islands are also wildly popular destinations, including Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai and Maui. Each of these tropical islands has its unique charms, such as the botanical gardens at Kauai, the famous Waikiki beach at Oahu, and the Haleakala Crater at Maui. For a slower paced version of Hawaiian life, you can visit Molokai. It was formerly a leper colony, but don’t let that scare you. Today Hawaii’s fifth largest island remains an unspoiled paradise, free of traffic lights and high rises. Hawaii is known for its progressive healthcare policies. All companies operating in Hawaii are required to provide health benefits to any employee working 20 or more hours per week.
