Magical Hawaii Island-Hopping Adventure

If you’ve dreamed of visiting Hawaii but don’t know which island to visit first, then this 21-night magical Hawaii island-hopping adventure could be just what you’re looking for.

With just a short flight between each island, it’s possible to visit 5 islands and see some of the best that Hawaii has to offer in just 20 days (excluding departure & arrival) with some relaxing in between.

The below suggested itinerary is a basic guide for a jam-packed 5-island-hopping Hawaiian adventure (based on places I have already experienced – except for the Big Island which is still on my bucket list).

Exact destinations, accommodations and transportation, as well as sightseeing excursions, activities & entertainment itineraries on each island, will be tailored to suit each individual client’s or group’s interests and wish list, as well as the time of year travelling and duration on each island. Prices, therefore, also vary and will depend on your particular needs, choices and budget.

8 must-do experiences in Hawaii

In my last post, I shared my 4 favourite Hawaii beaches. In this post, I share 8 must-do experiences in Hawaii, 2 from each island visited on an inter-island Hawaii cruise: Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island and Kauai. I have enjoyed 6 of these experiences, but, since I have yet to visit Hawaii Island, 2 are still on my bucket list.

My 4 favourite Hawaii beaches

The Hawaii Islands have hundreds of breathtaking beaches. They range from white sand to black with every shade of yellow in between. You’ll even find red sand and green sand beaches. Although I’ve obviously not visited every Hawaii beach (wouldn’t that be amazing), it’s still hard to choose a favourite from the ones I have. But I’ve managed to narrow it down to 4 off-the-beaten path Hawaii beaches, one on each island that I’ve visited.

My favourite beach on Molokai, Hawaii

Last week I posted about, Yokohama Bay, my favourite beach on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. One of my other favourite beaches in Hawaii is on the small island of Molokai in Maui County, although I probably shouldn’t be posting about it, as I’d like to keep it a secret really.

Yokohama Bay – my favourite beach in Oahu, Hawaii

This spectacular beach at Yokohama Bay on the leeward side Oahu is my favourite beach on the entire island. I probably shouldn’t even post about it as I think it should be kept a secret.

‘Iao Needle, ‘Iao Valley State Park, Maui

‘Iao Needle, ‘Iao Valley State Park, Maui, is a tropical rain-forest-covered ridge, regarded as the phallic stone of Kanaloa, Hawaiian god of the ocean.

Is the Nā Pali Coast in Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i on your travel bucket list?

Seriously, if you don’t have the Nā Pali Coast in Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i on your travel bucket list, then you really should add it! Hike 2 miles of the Kalalau Trail from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Beach for exhilarating coastal views and then another 2 miles to Hanakapi’ai Falls.

Kumini Beach, Molokai, Hawaii

Kumini Beach, Molokai, Maui, HawaiiI simply love Moloka‘i.This tiny island adjacent to Maui (which is actually part of Maui County), is like no other on earth. Of all the Hawai‘i Islands I’ve visited (and I've been to four), it’s the most unspoilt, secluded and...

Kalepa Mountain Forest Reserve, Kauai

Is Kaua‘i on Your Travel Bucket List Yet?The above photo is of Kalepa Mountain Forest Preserve and Wailua River in Kaua‘i. I took this photo on an island-hopping adventure of the Hawaiian Islands for my 50th birthday. As you can see from the photo, Kaua‘i is one of...
