Hawaii Island is the youngest island in the Hawaiian Island chain. Because of this the coastline is mostly rocky lava with very few beaches. It is a must visit to see the volcano and for the observatory but if you are wanting the typical Hawaii beach holiday try Oahu, Maui, or Kauai instead. Many visitors will spend 2-3 days on the big island and the rest of their time on one of the other islands.
