The Big Island (officially named Hawaii) at 4,028 square miles, is the largest island in the United States' Hawaiian archipelago in the Central Pacific. Its diverse terrain spans colored-sand beaches at Papakolea (green) and Punalu’u (black) to lush rainforest.
The Maui road system does not quite completely encircle the island. Route 30/310 (on the western side of the island) will take you south of Makena Beach - but - you cannot get to Hana unless you drive on route 37/360. On the north side of Maui, route 30 connects with route 340/3400 which will take you to route 360 which will eventually take you to Hana on the south side of the island.
At 596.7 square miles, Oahu is the third largest Hawaiian Island and the most populated at 1,016,508 according to the 2020 U.S. Census. This is 70% of the total population of the State of Hawaii.
