As a travel agent, I've been fortunate enough to explore some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, but few places have captured my heart quite like Hawaii. With its stunning natural beauty, warm hospitality, and diverse culture, Hawaii is truly a paradise on earth. And while each of the islands has its own unique charm and appeal, I believe that Kauai, Maui, and Oahu offer some of the most unforgettable experiences for travelers. In April of 2023, I was fortunate enough to get to explore these 3 islands in a magical 9-night adventure I will never forget!
Kauai: The Garden Island
Kauai is known as the Garden Island for good reason. It boasts lush, verdant landscapes that seem to come straight out of a postcard. Here, you can hike through Waimea Canyon, dubbed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, or take a boat tour of the breathtaking Na Pali Coast, where towering cliffs and cascading waterfalls meet the crystal-clear waters of the Pacific Ocean. Kauai also offers some of the best beaches in Hawaii, including the tranquil Hanalei Bay and the popular Poipu Beach. For a truly unforgettable experience, be sure to catch a sunrise or sunset at the stunning Kalalau Lookout. During my time on Kauai, I took an incredible boat tour of the Na Pali Coast, viewed the Waimea Canyon, visited the northern city of Princeville (where I nearly got a tattoo), and saw some sea turtles basking in the sun on Poipu Beach. And although Kauai has so much to offer, if you're looking for some fun and nightlife, one of the other islands may be a better fit for you.
Maui: The Valley Isle
Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands and offers a perfect mix of adventure, relaxation, and culture. One of the must-see attractions on Maui is the Haleakala National Park, where you can witness the sunrise from the summit of the dormant Haleakala volcano, hike through the otherworldly landscapes of the park, or simply marvel at the stunning vistas. Maui is also home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, including the crescent-shaped Kaanapali Beach and the tranquil Wailea Beach. The Road to Hana is a scenic drive that winds along the northeastern coast of Maui, offering breathtaking views of waterfalls, lush forests, and rugged cliffs. With over 600 turns and 59 bridges, the Road to Hana is not for the faint of heart, but for those who embark on this adventure, the rewards are immeasurable. Along the way, you can stop at various attractions, including the Twin Falls, Wailua Falls, and the famous black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park. To experience Maui's vibrant culture, be sure to visit the charming town of Lahaina, which was once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
Oahu: The Gathering Place
Oahu is the most populous of the Hawaiian Islands and offers a perfect blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. Here, you can visit Pearl Harbor and pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the attack on December 7, 1941, or explore the rich history and culture of Hawaii at the Bishop Museum. For those seeking adventure, Oahu offers some of the best surfing in the world at the famous Waikiki Beach, as well as opportunities for hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling. And of course, no trip to Oahu is complete without a visit to the iconic Diamond Head State Monument, where you can hike to the top of the dormant volcano and take in panoramic views of the island.
