The largest of all the islands, Hawaii Island continues to grow in size as lava flows into the sea. Beyond the volcano, there's so much to experience here, from cowboy country, luxury resorts to eco-adventures.
Lanai is affectionately known as "The Pineapple Isle," as it once produced approximately 75 percent of the world’s pineapples. Two luxury hotels now make it the ultimate place for rest and relaxation. No traffic lights here.
Its small-town, down-to-earth character earned Molokai its nickname, "The Friendly Isle." Molokai has preserved its slow paced, laid back lifestyle and connection to the past.
