Which Hawaiian Island is Right for Me
by Sharon Harrison

Which island is right for your vacation to Hawaii?

Are you traveling by yourself, with your partner, friend or family? These are just a few of the factors that will help you make a decision. First let's consider the specific Hawaiian Islands and their characteristics.

The oldest island in the chain is Kauai and thus has the widest variety of flora and fauna. It's so lush it is known as the "Garden Isle". Kauai has a very relaxed pace and is not quite as frequented by travelers as Maui, Oahu or the Big Island. Yes, Kauai is quiet but if you are truly looking for a break from the hustle of modern life you may want to try Molokai or Lanai. The island of Molokai has crescent shaped profile and is actually a partially visible rim of a large crater. The island of Lanai is fairly close to Maui and has gained popularity in the last five years. Lanai is very small (the smallest discussed here) and fun to explore. Unfortunately it’s almost impossible to find private transportation and all-inclusive resorts or private transportation. Another favorite vacation destination is Maui, commonly referred to as the "Show and Go" island.  If you like to dine out, Maui is the island for you.

All-inclusive resorts are located mainly on Maui, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island. Oahu is the first island many visitors experience. The capital of Hawaii, Honolulu, is located here. Waikiki is the most common destination on Oahu. Honolulu is by far the largest city with over one million inhabitants and a flourishing Chinatown. The Big Island of Hawaii is the most rural of all the Hawaiian Islands and is the home to many farms and various other forms of agriculture.

We hope this information helps you make a decision on which of the islands to visit on your travels.
