Experience all that the islands have to offer, with your newest, coolest “things to do” guide.

Hawaii is like no place on Planet Earth, with spectacular golden sand-covered beaches and lush emerald valleys. And each island has its own distinct personality. Kauai is “The Garden island” and the oldest of the main islands. This is the place to chill and enjoy nature at its finest, with tropical rainforests and cascading waterfalls. Oahu is the heart of Hawaii and is known as “The Gathering Place.” It is the third largest island in Hawaii, where you can bask in the surf and sun or take in the city. Molokai is the fifth largest island and boasts a rural lifestyle, national park and white sand beaches. It’s one of the most popular destinations for outdoor adventures. Lanai, the smallest island, will entice you with luxurious resorts, world class amenities and championship golf. Maui is known as “The Valley Isle.” On the second largest island, you’ll find famous beaches, a sacred valley, and some of the best locales for whale watching. The Big Island is the island of inspiration because it is both the youngest and largest of the Hawaiian Islands. It is a powerful destination, with volcanoes, mountains, lush valleys, and a black sand beach.
