The Big Island of Hawaii has 4,028 square miles of land mass and it’s growing. The entire state of Hawaii has 6,422 square miles in total. The Big Island’s 4,028 square miles represents almost 63% of the state’s total land mass. So the Big Island is bigger than all the other island combined. The Big Island is even bigger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. So, I’d say the island of Hawaii deserves it’s big name, wouldn’t you?
While we’re talking about the Big Island’s size, let’s look at the sizes of the other islands to see how they stack up. I’ll list them in descending order of size.
