The Big Island of Hawaii was rated number 1 as the “Best Island to Live On” for the third time in a row by the editors of ISLANDS magazine. We are in good company, the top 10 list of the Top 20 Best Islands to Live on 2012 includes Whidbey Island, WA., Maui, HI., New Zealand, and the Bahamas.
Whether you want to retire, relocate, or whatever your reason, the Big Island still comes out on top as the best island to live on – in the world. It’s not just the beaches, the palm trees, and the tallest mountain in the world (seabed to summit) that you can actually drive to the top of; It’s not just the ability to see flowing lava from one of the most active volcanoes in the world, nor that there are 11 out of 13 climates that the world has to offer; It’s the ohana (family) of everything living and working together, from the plentiful green sea turtles to the unique birds that are only found on this island, the land welcomes you home.
Great neighborhoods and great neighbors, large open spaces to forested terrain, farmer’s markets to roadside stands to even chain stores, you can find it all. Life is short – make the best of it.
