OK, let's get right to it - the very best of the Hawaiian islands. If you're like most visitors, you probably want to know the highlights first, the rest later. Or maybe you don't have three months to spare perusing your way around each island, who does right? Most visitors have a few days to a few weeks at most. So we've given a lot of thought to what places would make the highlight real of Hawaii, the top 10 places for each island, with a few honorable mentions to follow up. It's not to say there aren't a few dozen other great stops on each island, we just think these are the very best. Hopefully if you have only a day or two on a particular island, these lists will help you get right to the good stuff.
As the founder of this website, it may come as no surprise that I love everything about Hawaii; from the rich culture to the eclectic ecology of the islands. I love to share what I have discovered over the years and what I keep learning on a day to day basis about the place I so dearly love. Most importantly I believe in balance - malama pono and preserving the sacredness of these islands. They are indeed special and hold a dear place in my heart. I have been writing about Hawaii for 11 years now, and look forward to many more years to come. If you would like to connect, please do using any of the methods below.
