The Big Island of Hawaii is the igneous product of five different volcanoes, three of which are still active and fill the Hawaiian night sky with a beautiful orange glow. First colonized by intrepid Polynesians who traveled thousands of miles across the open ocean in canoes, this island was the seat of power for King Pai'ea Kamehameha, more commonly known as Kamehameha the Great.
Kamehameha conquered the Hawaiian Islands and established the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1810, which lasted until 1893 when an American-led coup d'etat overthrew the last monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili'uokalani. Today, the Big Island is a beloved tourist destination, best known for combining snowy slopes and tropical beaches in a landmass the size of Connecticut. Visitors travel from all over the world to experience the verdant spectacle of this unique island.
