But that is not all. Hawaii also has rich marine life, tropical forests, delicious food, a rocking nightlife and more. A Hawaiian Islands vacation is a fun-filled one that appeals to travelers of various ages and lifestyles.
Each of the six Hawaiian Islands of Kauai, Maui, Oahu, Big Island, Molokai and Lanai, have a distinct appeal for different sets of travelers. Before shopping for Hawaii Islands vacation packages, pinpoint the island that best suits your travel itinerary.
Here Is A Closer Look At The Islands Of Your Hawaiian Islands Vacation.
Kauai: Tourists looking to get away from the bustle of daily life should head to the nature-rich island of Kauai. The island’s stunning natural beauty has brought even filmmakers to its shores. Movies like South Pacific and Jurassic Park were shot on Kauai Island. Often called the “Garden Isle”, Kauai has lush green rainforests, pristine rivers and waterfalls. This natural beauty coupled with 50 miles of untouched beaches makes Kauai a popular honeymoon destination. But even adventure lovers enjoy a Hawaiian Islands vacation to this beautiful island. Hiking, ziplining and kayaking are just some of the activities available to adrenalin junkies. While here, do visit the Napali Coast and the breathtaking Waimea Canyon.
Maui: The island of Maui has a lot to offer. If you find Hawaii Island vacation packages providing Maui vacations at reasonable rates, do not pass them up! This scenic island has something for everyone. The sands of Kaanapali draw beach lovers from around the world. Marine life enthusiasts head to the town of Lahaina to spot whales basking on its shores. Plan a Hawaiian Island vacation during the winter months if whale watching is on your travel itinerary. The so-called “Magic Isle” is also home to championship golf courses. So you can tee off while the rest of your family follows a hiking trail in the Haleakala National Park.
Oahu: Here to experience the famous Hawaii nightlife? Then plan your Hawaiian Island vacation on the busy isle of Oahu. Start shopping in advance for Hawaii Island vacation rentals in Oahu. This island is a popular tourist destination all year round. And it does not get more touristy than the ever-popular Waikiki Beach. Oahu, which is often aptly called “The Gathering Place”, has other attractions as well. For a taste of history, visit the Pearl Harbor memorials or Iolani Palace, the only royal residence in the United States. Oahu is a shopper’s paradise as well. But if you want to get away from it all during your Hawaiian Island vacation, simply hike up to Leahi, the famous Diamond Head crater.
Big Island: Kilauea, the most active volcano in the world is one of the biggest selling points of a Big Island. Hawaii vacation rental deals to Big Island are a hit among adventure lovers. And even though Big Island is sometimes referred to as “Volcano Isle”, the island also offers scenic hiking trails, ancient Hawaiian temples, the birthplace of King Kamehameha, rich marine life and some of the best beaches (including white, black and green sand beaches) in Hawaii. Big Island vacation packages can range from high-end deals providing accommodation in luxury resorts to cheaper vacation homes.
Molokai: If you are looking to get away from it all, plan a Hawaiian Island vacation at Molokai. This quiet little island has no traffic and no big buildings. The region is ideal for a tranquil, laidback vacation. You can experience Hawaiian culture, get hula dancing tips from the locals, try your hand at sport fishing and much more. Do visit the white sand shores of Papohaku Beach while you are here. And try taking a mule ride as well.
Lanai: Traveling in Hawaii is never cheap. But tourists looking for some heavy-duty pampering on their Hawaiian Islands vacation should head to the exclusive five-star resorts on Lanai island. However, there is more to Lanai than luxury accommodations and golf courses. The island is also popular among tourists who like taking its unpaved roads, visiting Puu Pehe (Sweetheart Rock) and the famous rock garden Keahiakawelo (Garden of the Gods).
Traveling to all the islands during a single trip may be difficult, but not impossible. A multiple Hawaiian Island vacation is a great option for travelers with some time on their hands. Even if you do not visit all six islands, you can manage two or three over a 10-day visit. Only, make sure you plan your Hawaiian Islands Vacation in advance and avoid taking part in too much activities over a short period.
