The islands of Hawaii offer many wonderful and varied experiences. Choosing which islands to visit and determining how much time to allow for each is critical in maximizing your vacation enjoyment. The islands are quite different, so carefully choose your destination based on what you like to do.

The Island of Oahu

The island of Oahu is home to Honolulu and Pearl Harbor. Honolulu is very commercial, with lots of tourists, traffic and shopping. Chances are no matter where you're headed in Hawaii, you'll at least pass through Honolulu Airport.

Pearl Harbor
The Island of Kauai

One of most peaceful and beautiful of the Hawaiian Islands. It is truly a tranquil paradise with breathtaking views. The island is very quiet and small and the landscape is magnificent.

  • Rent a Car
    Drive Kaui's winding roads, pass through low-hanging clouds, explore hidden beaches.
  • Take a Helicopter Tour
    Ssee the island and its dozens of waterfalls, plunging cliffs, and lush foliage.
  • Visit the Na Pali coast line by boat.
    This amazing coastline is not accessible by car. You might even spot Humpback whales.

  • Wailea Beach Area
    It's sunny, the beaches are great and the shopping is wonderful.
  • Golf
    Several championship golf courses, with the bonus of awesome views.
  • Whale Watching
    There are many whale-watching opportunities from the beach or highway.
  • The Molokini Crater
    A must-see for divers or snorkelers.

The Big Island

One of the few places in the world where you can walk around on a live volcano, immerse yourself in a tropical jungle, or sun yourself on sunny beaches.

You should allow yourself at least one week to visit the Big Island. There is just too much wonderful scenery and way too much driving involved to attempt a vacation there for less than a week.

  • Golf - Unique holes and amazing views at the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course.
  • Shop - Several upscale areas
  • Visit a Live Volcano - It is a full day's drive to Kilauea Volcano and back from Kona.



No matter which island you choose, the Hawaiian sunsets will be beautiful.

Shown here is the Molokini Crater, off the coast of Maui.
