In the State of Hawaii, there are six major islands, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii the big island, and two smaller and lower islands, Niihau and Kahoolawe. Except for the privately owned island of Niihau and uninhabited island of Kahoolawe, all of the other islands are open to all visitors and offer many different kinds of Activity Hawaii with one exception, Niihau offers visitors limited access. However, even though all of these islands offer many activities, not all of the islands offer all the same Activity Hawaii. To the northwest of Hawaii, there lies the islands of Niihau and Kauai, which are geologically the oldest and most eroded islands. The other six islands to the southeast are progressively younger and less eroded. Kauai is known as the “garden island” and its highest peak, Waialeale, is one of the wettest spots in the world. The setting on Kauai is lush, green, and rural, and there is a resort in Poipu and very little commercial development. Kauai offers spectacular scenery from the land and air and a hike along the Na Pali Coast gives you a taste of a tropical paradise. Oahu is called the “gathering place” and is the most populated island with the most commercial development mainly along the Leeward (southern) coastal lowland. Oahu is known for its beautiful white sand beaches and scenery along the coast. Waikiki and Ko Olina are the two resort areas. Although Activity Hawaii are many, Oahu is known for offering visitors entertainment, such as luaus, polynesian shows, and music. Molokai or the “friendly isle” is very rural in nature with a small resort on Molokai’s dry west side. This island is the perfect place to get away from it all. Lanai is rural and it has been transformed into a unique luxury vacation spot. This island used to be called the “pineapple island,” but pineapple is no longer grown there. Maui is known as the “valley isle” because of the large number of wet valleys on the windward (northeast) side of east Maui. This island has resorts in Makena, Wailea, Kihei, Lahaina and Kaanapali. Most of the commercial development is in central Maui. Maui is a favorite destination and has a lot of Activity Hawaii to offer visitors, thus, this islands is said to be “Maui no ka oi” or Maui is the best. Hawaii or the big island is known as the “orchid island” because of the profusion of wild orchids in the wetter areas of the island. The big island is the biggest and youngest island and is still volcanically active (lava flow). More recently the big island is referred to as the “volcano island.” The major resorts are in Kona-Kohala and Kailua-Kona. The commercial area is in Kona.
