Renowned for it’s magnificent beaches, Hawaii has not one, but seven different islands for tourists to explore and visit. Usually, visitors just stick to one island and don’t bother with the others.

If you are planning a holiday there, you need to do some research first and check out which island will suit your taste and requirements, as each island differs from each other.

Here are some of the facts about the different islands that the majority of people tend to visit when they come:

The main island is called Oahu. It’s here that the most tourists visit when they come to Hawaii. The famous Waikiki beach is located here along with the state’s capital. The good thing about this island is that room rates are a lot cheaper than the other islands – even though the hotel rates on the actual beach are fairly expensive. Hawaiin villa rentals for groups is a good choice, if there are a few of you coming to stay.

For those of you who are experienced surfers, you should check out the north shore, as it has some of the biggest waves in the world.

Another very popular island is Maui. A lot of celebrities like to stay in the Wailea area of the island. However, it must be mentioned that the most expensive rooms are found here, in comparison to all the other islands. If you visit here, then you need to go whale watching, as the humpback whales visit the nearby waters off the coast and are a beautiful sight to behold.

The other island that is definitely worth checking out is Big island. It’s the largest of all the seven islands. There are two parts to the island – Hilo, and Kona. Most of the travellers visit Kona. The island also has an active volcano for you to visit. It is one of the last remaining active volcanos in the world and is worth experiencing. You just might be able to grab a photo of some lava coming down the hill!

You won’t forget your trip to Hawaii if you end up going. Just remember that there’s more than just one island there, and if possible you should try and visit them all, in order to get a proper taste of what each one has to offer.
