6. Maui is the best island to visit
Maui is arguably the most celebrated Hawaiian island among North American tourists, and there’s no question this “Valley Isle” is entrancing: from the crater views at Haleakala to the spellbinding coastal drive of the Hana Highway, and some of the most fabled surf breaks on Earth.
The truth is every Hawaiian island has its own special magic: the rainforests and cloud-hung summits of Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island, the iconic spread of Waikiki and Diamond Head on O‘ahu, the verdant vegetation and Waimea Canyon on Kaua‘i, the dazzling sea cliffs of Moloka‘i—and so much more. Each of the main tourist islands has beaches, palms, waterfall cliffs, and opportunities for cultural exploration. Your AAA travel agent can even customize a multi-island Pleasant Holidays vacation package.
