Here Are 13 Islands In Hawaii That Are An Absolute Must Visit

As the most isolated population center on earth, the Hawaiian Islands consist of eight major islands, several small islets and numerous atolls extending approximately 1,500 miles. While the majority of these islands are uninhabited and unnamed, or nearly impossible to gain access to – like the private island of Ni’ihau, or Kaho’olawe – other islands are simply a plane ride or short boat trip away.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
