Hawaii is one of your favorite destinations. You keep returning to the chic restaurants on Oahu, the green coast of Kauai, and the best beaches on Maui. But there are more than three islands in the archipelago. Here are five other options to keep in mind the next time you travel to the 50th state. We promise you’ll love them just as much.
Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park: See an active volcano, a massive crater, lava tubes, petroglyphs, and black-sand beaches on the Big Island.
Kaho’olawe: Help bring an island back to life by cleaning up, finding tools, spotting sacred spots, and plotting future favorite spots on a deserted island off the coast of Maui.
Lānaʻi: Find deserted beaches, a nature preserve, a lunar-like rock garden, and shipwrecks on the Pineapple Island.
Kalaupapa: Stand atop the highest sea cliffs in the world, ride a mule down a steep hill, visit a former leper colony, and see what a ghost town feels like on Molokaʻi.
Ni’ihau: Cross the Kaulakahi Channel to see the endangered ōlulu, lazy monk seals, rock cliffs, and a place where time stands still on the Forbidden Isle.
