Home / Australia and Oceania / Hawai'i | Big Island 65

Dominated by the large shield volcanoes Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, more than 4000 m high, the largest island of the Hawai'ian archipelago is still growing. Lava flows from the East Rift Zone (Kīlauea volcano) continuously reach the coast and form new land.
