For a more rugged Hawaiian experience, Hawaii's Big Island can't be beat. Sure there are sparkling beaches. But an active volcano, huge mountains, awesome canyons, roaring waterfalls and lush rainforests make the Big Island a truly unique destination for those looking to do more than just soak up the sun. With fewer flights than other islands, airfare is even pricier. Fares in January are going for $1100 and up.
