Best Islands to Visit In Hawaii

The Top Ten
1 Maui

All of the Hawaiian Islands are unique and special in their own way, each as thrilling as the next. But Maui is without doubt the best. Many people say Oahu is better because of Honolulu, but Honolulu is crowded and congested and not paradise. Maui is gorgeous, with its mountains and beaches, waterfalls, and volcanoes! Kahului is an interesting city, but Lahaina is by far the most exotic. Maui is literally paradise on Earth.

I have to vote for this one. Definitely the best one there is. Not too crowded like Oahu, and not too diverse with a small population like the Big Island, even though the Big Island is really nice. Love it.

2 Oahu

Oahu, Hawaii is definitely one of my favorite places in the world! Love it because I have so many happy, special memories that I'll never forget. Over the years, I visited the island 3 times and we always did a variety of different tourist stuff. There is so much to do and it is quite beautiful there. The best part is, on my vacations, I felt completely relaxed and stress-free, plus add in great weather, great food, great people, great culture, it is amazing!

Oahu is amazing. It really doesn't get enough credit for its natural beauty, and it wasn't as crowded as other people say. You just have to find the right beach to go to.

3 Hawa'i (Big Island)

As a resident of the Big Island, I have to vote for this, obviously! It's such a fun place to be. You can see an active volcano, and there's Rainbow Falls! There are lots of fun and touristy attractions, like visiting Waikoloa (where it's almost always sunny), and (according to the Big Island offers the best snorkeling and scuba diving out of all the Hawaiian Islands. Anyway, I would definitely recommend visiting the Big Island.

Biggest Hawaiian island and very fun plus it's the only island where you can see active lava.

4 Kauai

Most beautiful, yet unspoiled and uncrowded. No freeways. Only 66,000 people vs. 800,000 on Oahu.

This should number 1 best island ever, great for kids and adults.

5 Moloka'i

Ever heard of the cliffs of Kaluapapa? Yeah, they're right here in Molokai.

6 Lanai
7 Ni'ihau

Isn't this a private island? You can't come uninvited, I believe. But if you somehow can go to Ni'ihau, enjoy it.

8 Kaho'olawe
9 Ka‘ula
10 Lehua
The Contenders
11 Nihoa
12 Molokini

Molokini is not really an island, it's just an atoll. But it is cool and fun for snorkeling!
