Ahhh Hawai‘i

It’s where paradise goes for inspiration.

Even saying the name conjures up beautiful images. The incredible beaches of Maui. The lush greenery of Kaua‘i. Oahu’s iconic Waikīkī with Lē‘ahi (Diamond Head) in the background.

Or maybe it’s not just the beautiful images. Maybe it’s what Hawai‘i represents. Relaxation, recreation, a vibrant and unique history and culture… there truly is something in Hawai‘i for everyone.

So, which island?
Each island is different. Which ones you choose depends on your interests and the length of your visit. It’s very easy to island hop with lots of short daily flights available.

Maui
Romance is always in the air on Maui. And why shouldn’t it be? This is the best of both worlds, offering a unique blend of sophistication with a laid back, small town feel. Start your day atop the summit of Haleakalā for an epic sunrise. Spend the day along the scenic, winding road to Hāna or travel through the lush gardens and farms of Upcountry Maui.

Kaua‘i
“Rejuvenating” is a word often used on Kaua‘i, known for iconic spots like the soaring cliffs of the Nāpali Coast, the panoramic views of Waimea Canyon and the peaceful currents of the Wailua River. But even more breathtaking discoveries await along Kaua‘i’s one-lane highways. From hidden waterfalls to secluded beaches, the northernmost and greenest of the Hawaiian Islands a place you’ll never forget.

O‘ahu
This is where the action is. The lively center of the Hawaiian Islands. A vibrant gathering spot with a unique blend of relaxation and excitement. O‘ahu is famous for iconic Hawai‘i locations like Waikīkī Beach, Pearl Harbor and the surfing mecca of the North Shore.

Island of Hawai‘i
Take a road trip on the biggest of the Hawaiian Islands. This is a place of stark contrasts — from the crystal blue waters and white sands of the Kona Coast, to the rugged volcanic coastlines of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, to the lush botanical gardens and waterfalls of the Hāmākua Coast.

Moloka‘i
Here, it’s all about the simple things in life. Natural, unspoiled and rustic, Moloka‘i remains true to its island roots. Where visitors can experience old-style Hawai‘i and feel the Hawaiian culture and aloha spirit permeate from the central town of Kaunakakai to revered Hālawa Valley and sacred Kalaupapa.

Lāna‘i
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, Lāna‘i offers an escape from it all. Indulge in world-class amenities and championship golf, or spend the morning exploring local shops in Lāna‘i City.
