to visit if you’re…
While we obviously think Maui is No Ka Oi (Maui is the best!), each Hawaiian Island comes with its own unique set of draws and perks. Have fun, relax, and live a little – it’s paradise, after all.
For many travelers, Maui offers the best of both worlds in terms of island life – fun, relaxed nightlife, charming beach towns, a convenient mix of modern amenities and untouched nature, and plenty of adventurous activities that will leave you wanting more.
If you’re in search of exciting nightlife in Hawaii, there’s really only one place to go – Waikiki. While Oahu offers a variety of activities for all kinds of travelers, including surfers, nature enthusiasts, history buffs and foodies, we highly recommend Oahu for the young and adventurous crowd.
Kauai is the smallest of the four main Hawaiian Islands. It often goes overlooked for first-time visitors to Hawaii. However, those who have been there and have experienced its incredible otherworldly beauty, rarely regret their decision. Many fall in love with Kauai and return year-after-year.
While The Big Island remains somewhat under-the-radar when it comes to the most popular Hawaiian vacation destinations, it offers several remarkable sites you can’t find anywhere else in the state. With 5 volcanoes and a an area larger than that of all the other major Hawaiian Islands combined, make sure you have plenty of time to explore the best of the Big Island!
Also known as ‘The Friendly Isle,’ you won’t find five star resorts, shopping malls or a single traffic light on the island of Moloka’i. For those looking to enjoy secluded, serene beauty and a look into the Hawaii of the past, Moloka’i offers a true escape and experience in the Hawaiian Islands. Because a large portion of the population – approximately 40% – remains of Hawaiian descent, Moloka’i is also commonly referred to as “The Most Hawaiian Island.”
If you plan on traveling to Maui but don’t have enough time to visit two of the major islands, we highly recommend a trip to the neighbor island of Lana’i, located only a short ferry ride from Maui’s Lahaina Harbor.
With a population of only 3,000 people, the Island of Lana’i offers rustic beauty and plenty of opportunities to explore.
