How to explore the different islands of Hawaii
For first time visitors, I would recommend starting on Oahu where they can experience the birthplace of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, world-renown North Shore, the only royal palace in the U.S., and also the energetic nightlife. When they’re ready to move on, I recommend a visit to Hawaii Island, the largest, but the youngest island in our chain and the home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes and the world’s tallest sea mountain.
Although each island is different, the one thing that visitors will find in common on each island is the aloha spirit: the warmth of Hawaii’s people that wonderfully complements the Islands’ perfect weather.
