Kauai is the oldest of Hawaii's islands. Here, you'll see a lush landscape rich tropical vegetation. Perfect for a romantic getaway and great for outdoor activities, it’s no wonder this island is called the “Garden Isle.”
Maui is Hawaii's second largest island and provides a good balance between the urban and rural lifestyles. You’ll find plenty of opportunities for shopping, nightlife and activities like golfing on a world-class course or taking a helicopter tour of the island. Maui is also home to Haleakala National Park, some of the most astounding waterfalls in the world, clear coastal waters where migrating whales play, lush tropical rainforests and so much more. From Maui, the smaller islands of Molokai'i and Lanai are just a short water crossing away.
Oahu is rich with history. It was on this island that the Hawaiian monarchy resided, which is perhaps how Oahu came to be known as “the gathering place.” The famous Waikiki Beach is also located here.
The Big Island is officially named Hawai'i is the most ecologically diverse because it is largely undeveloped and boasts an incredible 11 of 13 possible climate zones, meaning you can snowboard on Mauna Kea in the morning and sun yourself at Makalawena Beach in the afternoon.
