Big Island

Lundkvist Palm Garden is located in Leilani Estates, right off Highway 130, about 25 miles south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai'i. The Big Island, as it is commonly called, at just over 4000 square miles, is the largest of the Hawaiian islands, almost twice the size of all the other islands combined. It is also the youngest of the Hawaiian Islands, with an estimated age of about one million years.
The island has five volcanoes; Kohala, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai and Kilauea. Kohala is considered extinct, while the others are still considered active even though it's probably been close to 10,000 years since Mauna Kea last erupted. Hualalai last erupted around 1801, Mauna Loa in 1983 and Kilauea through the Pu'u O'o vent has been continuously erupting since January 1983.
Hilo, with an average of 130 inches of rain per year, is located on the east (windward) side of the Big Island, and is considered the wettest city in the USA. Kilauea-Kona, with an average of 8 inches of rain is on the west (leeward) side of the island. The Big Island has an impressive variety of different landscapes and environments. Below are some photos of various areas.
