Hawaii Travel Guide
Six major islands make up Hawaii. The biggest are Hawaii Island, Oahu, Maui and Kauai. You’ll find each island has its own distinct personality and offers its own adventures, activities and sights, whilst all of Hawaii’s islands contain its infectious Aloha Spirit – the warmth of Hawaii’s people that perfectly complements the islands’ natural beauty.
See some of the most interesting beaches in the world on ‘Big Island’ where you’ll not only find beautiful white sands, but green and black sand beaches too. Hawaii Island is home to coffee plantations overlooking historic Kailua-Kona, the cool highlands of Hawaiian cowboy country and one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
Arguably the most popular of the Hawaiian Islands, you’ll enjoy countless activities and attractions on Oahu. The south shore is home to Honolulu and world-famous Waikiki, the island’s main resort area and the birthplace of surfing. Just 30 minutes from Waikiki, historic Pearl Harbour has five individual World War II sites to explore.
Voted as the ‘Best Island’ for over 20 years by Condé Nast Traveller, Maui is an island of beautiful beaches, quaint towns and verdant rainforest in the sacred Iao Valley. The popular town of Lahaina offers dozens of art galleries, unique shops and inviting restaurants, all with a paradisal oceanfront backdrop.
An island of striking natural beauty, Kauai is an outdoor lover’s dream. Choose to kayak along the Wailua River, snorkel off Poipu Beach or hike along the trails of Kokee State Park. You can even view Kauai’s lush valleys from above on an exciting zipline experience.
