Visit Hawaii’s Big Island and you’ll soon discover it’s a big playground.
At 4,038 square miles, the Big Island of Hawaii is twice the size of all of the other major islands combined. Eleven different climate zones offer everything from lush rain forests to arid deserts and black sand beaches to snow-capped peaks (Mauna Kea). Not to mention the world’s most active volcano – Kileaua – in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. With much to do and see outdoors as well as a lively art and restaurant scene, Hawaii has a little something for everyone.
Your Time & Place luxury vacation will allow you to experience all parts of this diverse and magical island. Grab a surf board and hang 10 with your group. Snorkel with the turtles and dolphins, or take a glass bottom boat and view ocean life from above (while sipping on a frozen drink!). Golf on the Kohala coast. Hike the amazing lush forests and even get up close and personal with a lava field.
The natural wonders of Hawaii pair perfectly with the spirited cultural scene. Museums, National Parks, Heritage Sites and art galleries abound across the island and invite you to absorb the rich history of Hawaii. From romantic dinners to family-filled events, Time & Place would like to introduce you to the aloha spirit.

Weather on all of the Hawaiian Islands is very consistent, with only minor changes in temperature throughout the year. This is partly due to year-round warm sea surface temperatures. In practical terms, there are only two seasons: the summer months (called Kau in Hawaiian) extending from May to October and the winter months (Hooilo) running from November to April. The average daytime summer temperature at sea level is 85 degrees F. (29.4 C.), while the average daytime winter temperature is 78 degrees F. (25.6 C.). Temperatures at night are approximately 10 degrees F. lower.
Any time of year is a good time to visit Hawaii’s Big Island. Summer, between April and November, is warmer and drier while winter, between December and March, is a bit cooler. Trade winds keep things comfortable year-round. The Kona side of the island is sunnier and drier, while the Hilo side is wetter and more tropical.
Kohala Coast weather is the classic tropical climate. It’s blessed with sunshine 357 days of the year. The Kohala Coast has an average annual rainfall of 7 inches, an average humidity of 48 percent and an average temperature of 78 degrees. Kona and the Kohala Coast are situated on the west (sunny) side of the Big Island.
