Choosing the spot
There is no such thing as a wrong choice when deciding which Hawaiian island to visit on your vacation. They are all breath-taking and beautiful with heavenly scenery and white beaches. Every one exudes a gentle “aloha” spirit, and although there is no best island among them, there can be a vacation spot in Hawaii that best suits you. The best place in Hawaii to visit depends entirely on your taste and your idea of a good time. You may like to try out different foods, or you’re an adrenaline junkie craving some adventure. Perhaps you enjoy hiking or maybe beaches do it for you. The islands in Hawaii satisfy visitors throughout the year, and each one is different and offers something unique. Frequent flights from the Hawaiian Airlines make it easy to hop from island to island. There is an alternative Norwegian Cruise Line that also allows you to visit four different islands in seven days, giving you a chance to sample the best of each.
Oahu, which means the gathering place, is the busiest island in Hawaii. But more than that, it’s the perfect place for foodies, high-end shopping, and dazzling nightlife. At the center of Oahu’s action is Waikiki, one of the most famous beaches in all of Hawaii. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a sunset cocktail or mai-tai, surf on the calm, smooth waves, and immerse yourself in the Hawaiian Luau, the traditional feast accompanied by authentic Hawaiian music, professional hula performers, and fire dancers, plus the wonderful Hawaiian cuisine. Oahu really comes alive at night, and it’s easy to find an entertainment spot. You can also visit historic sites and museums during the day.
With every kind of beach you can imagine, Maui’s the perfect place if you’re looking for Hawaii’s legendary water sports. You can snorkel, kiteboard or ride some of the biggest waves on the planet.

It’s suitable for honeymooners, adventure seekers, and scenic travelers.
