An Intro to the Hawaiian Islands

Six Hawaiian Islands. Six unique experiences. From crystal blue waters to stunning green cliffs and black sand beaches, Hawaii’s wealth of natural beauty is a breathtaking backdrop for unforgettable experiences that reward those who delve a little deeper – into vibrant cultures full of welcoming aloha, a thriving food scene, and thrilling outdoor adventures. There’s so much more to Hawaii than what you’ve heard about. #LetHawaiiHappen

Oahu

This is where culture meets creativity. In the lively center of the Hawaiian Islands, luxury, leisure, excitement, and adventure can all be found in just the right proportion to suit you. Oahu is famous for its iconic Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor, and the surfing mecca on the North Shore. There’s much more to this storied destination, though! From festivals that celebrate Hawaiian culture to major events at the pinnacle of sports and entertainment, there’s always something to do. Explore the lush tropical beauty that abounds from mountain to ocean. Discover up-and-coming chefs and mixologists, staking Oahu’s claim as a culinary capital. Schedule some free time on your itinerary so that you can go with the flow and soak in the buzz and energy of Oahu.

Island of Hawaii

Take a road trip through the youngest and largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Nearly twice as big as all of the others combined, the Island of Hawaii’s sheer size and diversity are awe-inspiring. You can see some of the most pivotal sites in Native Hawaiian history and visit an active volcano, all while traveling through all but four of the world’s different climate zones. From the crystal blue waters of Kona and the black sands of Punaluu to the lush botanical gardens and waterfalls of the Hamakua Heritage corridor, there is so much more to see and do on this rich, storied island.

Maui

Maui is where larger-than-life experiences meet small town charm. This is the best of both worlds; offering a unique blend of sophistication and simplicity. Taste the fresh bounty produced year-round by local farms and breathe in the scent from lush gardens that surround the quaint communities of Upcountry Maui. At the end of a long day, make your way to the exclusive Haleakala National Park to witness an epic sunset from the top of the world, or simply lounge pool-side at a luxurious resort. From friendly folks to picturesque landscapes, there’s no end to the unique welcome you’ll find on Maui.

Molokai

Natural and rustic, Molokai remains true to its island roots. Here, visitors can experience old-style Hawaii as it bursts with culture and that ever-present “aloha” spirit. While visiting, take some time to explore the glorious North Shore Pali Coast, where you’ll see the tallest sea cliffs in the world. You’ll find that the view is quite remarkable! You can also discover Papohaku Beach, one of Hawaii’s largest white sand beaches. In Molokai, it’s all about savoring the simple things in life.

Lanai

Embrace serenity on the island where not one single traffic light can be found. Where luxury and privacy are a way of life. As the smallest inhabited island, Lanai offers an escape from it all. Indulge in world-class amenities and championship golf, or spend the morning exploring local shops in Lanai City. Delve into the historic paniolo cowboy culture, take in stunning canyon views of Maunalei Gulch, or capture unforgettable sunsets at the iconic Puu Pehe. From land to sea, the unexpected awaits you on Lanai.

Kauai

“Rejuvenating” is a word often used to describe Kauai and its immersive natural beauty: the raw energy of the soaring cliffs along the emerald Napali Coast, the expansive vistas of the Waimea Canyon, and the soothing ripples of the Wailua River winding through the forest. The northernmost and greenest of the Hawaiian Islands is a place to put down your phone and forget about your worries. Breathe deep, unwind, and rediscover a special connection to nature on this beautiful, tropical island.

Any of these gorgeous islands will be perfect for your next Hawaiian getaway! Have you found your favorite yet?

    Planning a trip to The Big Island and Kauai next March and have several tours to take and adventures to take part in. Trying to do this as economical as possible and because we are close to 70, we would need everything scheduled to be able to be cancelled in case of a health problem. We will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary on Kauai on March 24, 2018.
