Decisions, decisions. If you’re having trouble deciding which of the six major Hawaiian Islands is right for you, the good news is they’re all amazing – just for different reasons. It just depends on what you like to do and how you like to spend your time on holiday. Rest assured, the islands of Hawaii have something for everyone. If it’s a relaxing retreat you’re after or something to put you at the heart of something entirely different, you’re in luck.
While a warm welcome, sun-kissed beaches and plenty of excellent food are a given wherever you choose to go, there’s a unique character and charm to each island that’s instantly apparent. Kauai, for example, is gilded by a resplendent natural beauty, while Maui’s many beaches are considered some of the finest swathes of sand in the world. Each island is distinct in its own enticing little way.
If you have a taste for local cuisines and multicultural ambience, O’ahu could well be the island for you. Perhaps experiencing new cultures is what you look for, in which case, Moloka’i is abundant with indigenous heritage and history.
Diverse and varied, even their nicknames indicate the differing natures of these picturesque islands; O’ahu is known as The Gathering Place, Moloka’i is The Friendly Isle, while Ni’ihau’s Forbidden Isle moniker perhaps illustrates something a little more mysterious.
A many-splendored part of the world, Hawaii is verdant with variation.
