Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive yet easy to use guidebook ever written for the Big Island. This island is so big and diverse that many visitors never realize all that it has to offer. We unlock its secrets. Our brand new third edition has more useful information, the most up to date maps, and scores of hidden gems listed nowhere else. This book and a rental car are all you need to discover what makes the Big Island so exciting. Our 38 specially created maps include clear, concise directions to even the most remote beaches and other hard to find places, mile markers (so you always know where you are), hiking trails, and numerous details in an easy to follow format. Deserted black sand beaches, secluded freshwater lava pools (some volcanically heated), pristine rain forests, lava tubes, hidden waterfalls, and the most dramatic part of the erupting volcano shown nowhere else. Fascinating stories and legends from all around the island. Symbols quickly identify recommended sights and companies. We identify which companies really are the bestand which to avoid. Frank, honest opinions from anonymous reviewsNo advertisements. Special expanded sections on Hiking and Adventures. Web site with links to every business, last minute updates and more. Plus Web pages available exclusively to our readers that expand on all accommodation reviews with aerial photos of all the resorts (so you'll know if oceanfront really means oceanfront). Only book ever banned at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Visitor Center for being "too honest" and "revealing too much." Written by island residents who know the island. We've covered it allfrom the snow-covered top of Mauna Kea, to the sparkling underwater reefs. This is the best investment you can make for your Big Island trip. Whether you are a first time visitor, or a long time kama[aina, you will find out more about the Big Island from this book than from any other source. Discover the Hawaii you've always imagined with Hawaii The Big Island Revealed.

Synopsis:

Most travel titles are put together in a few weeks by visiting travel writers. Wizard guidebooks take over a year to compile and the writers are residents who personally and anonymously review every facet of the island. Their maps are the best you'll find. From restaurants to helicopter companies to scuba to beaches to trails. They see it all and show you the best the island has to offer. They also reveal who's the worst and who to stay away from. All told in a frank, humorous way that keeps the reading fun.

Synopsis:

The finest guidebook ever written for the Big Island and the only one written by writers who anonymously review the island. They visit every beach, restaurant, activity and trail on the island. The result is this comprehensive, humorous and easy-to-read full color guide that will lead you to more adventures than any other book. A must for travelers.
