Last year, thousands of you voted in our 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards “Best of the Best” Issue.

What’s the best beach on Oahu? Will Maui keep its title as Best Island? Who makes the best mai tai in the state? Fill out these ballots, separated by island, to give your favorite Hawaii businesses, activities and experiences your seal of approval and help guide other travelers toward the best experiences Hawaii has to offer. We’ve added a few new categories for 2020, too: Now you can vote for Best Farm Tours and Best Bakery on each major island, Best Beach on every individual island and Best Loco Moco on Hawaii Island.

This year,  there are a total of six ballots you can fill out. Every ballot you vote on enters you to win a vacation to Hawaii Island! So that means the more islands you vote on, the higher your chance of taking home the grand-prize getaway. Click on the islands to go to each ballot.
