Island of Hawai‘i

Island of Hawai'i, Hawaii, USA

Big Island Sand

If you're looking for diversity, the Big Island will allow you to change it up every day. From the sea to the sky, the island has 11 climate zones, beaches, mountaintops, and rain forests. With 266 miles (and growing) of coastline, Hawaii Island's sand comes in a variety of colors and sizes. Geographically young, at roughly 800,000 years, the Big Island has not seen enough time gone by to have the amount of manicured beautiful soft sand beaches that Maui and Oahu can offer. However, Hawaii Island's beaches are diverse and fascinating to discover.

Amen to Baked Goods

I was really curious about the name of the road, and was hoping to find heavenly croissants or angel cake or something at the end of it, but alas, no. Just a funny name that still has me wondering.
