Stay away from big islands.

The big island of Hawaii is beautiful, but budget travelers have better options. Big islands have more touristy things to do and less natural beauty than the other islands.

If you’re looking for an easy way to get around, consider taking a bus tour from Honolulu instead of flying in or renting a car.

Don’t visit the volcanoes.

Don’t visit the volcanoes.

Volcanoes are dangerous and not a good place to visit in Hawaii. You can’t live there, which means you’d have to live elsewhere—and that’s justifiably difficult for many people on this list. The last thing you want is to be forced into exile because of your choice of island destination!

Keep going in Kauai for the day.

Keep going in Kauai for the day.

Kauai is a grand island to visit, but it’s not a place you should stop for the day. The beaches are beautiful, but they differ from what makes Kauai one of Hawaii’s most popular tourist destinations. If you want to see some of the best sights and experience some of its most unique activities, drive around and explore other parts of this great state!

Visit the backcountry by helicopter tours.

There are several options to get a bird’s-eye view of the island. One is by helicopter tour. These can take you to Haleakalā Crater, considered one of the most beautiful spots on Earth and featured in movies like Jurassic Park and The Avengers. You’ll also be able to see other parts of the island that aren’t quite as accessible by car or foot traffic: lava tubes, waterfalls, and more!

Another option is hiking through Haleakalā National Park with your guide/hostess for about 2-4 hours per day for about $300 per person (if you’re traveling solo). This includes lodging at a tent site along with meals & drinks throughout each day 9 am until 4 pm).

Visit more than one island.

When you visit more than one island, you can experience the culture of each. For example, if you go to Maui and Oahu, which are very different in climate and geography, it’s easy to see how they differ. You may want to check out Haleakalā National Park on Maui or take a helicopter tour over Big Island Hawaii State Parks such as Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park or Hualalai Mountain Resort for an aerial view of what it’s like living at high altitude!

The annual total of visitor days to Kauai has been increasing, but the yearly visitation rate per person has declined since 2000. Visitors spend about one-third of their time on Kauai in rural areas. The remaining two-thirds is split between the urban areas adjacent to the coast and resort areas.

The total building permits issued for the condominium developments in West Kauai was 6,329 units or 418 projects in 2007, with a dollar value of $1,302 million. The average value per unit was $346,947 per project.

Hawaii consists of seven islands located hundreds or thousands of miles apart from each other by boat or plane and on land, separated by valleys and mountains. All seven islands are covered in this article (and more). There are many things that everyone needs to do when they visit an island: hiking, snorkeling, swimming, and exploring the beaches by foot or car. However, there are other things that no one wants to do:

  • Zip-lining through jungles
  • Cage diving with sharks
  • Surfing dangerous waves
  • Puking from overeating food at a buffet
  • Begging people for money after buying overpriced souvenirs
  • Trying out strange new food

These activities can be done off-island but can be avoided if you choose not to participate (e.g., drive into Waimea Canyon instead of going down at exit number 59A off Highway 580). But alas, those exhilarating activities will give you something memorable for your memory, like climbing up Mt Haleakala crater or taking a helicopter tour over four different volcanoes. Takeaway: Get off-island and avoid these activities, which cost more than they’re generally worth (excluding cultural experiences)
