Big Island Travel Guide

Getting Here and Around

It's essential to rent a car when visiting the Big Island. As the name suggests, it’s a big island, and it takes a while to get from point A to point B.

For those who want to travel from the west side to the east side, or vice versa, the newly rerouted and repaved Saddle Road creates a nice shortcut across the middle of the island.
