Reviews > North America > United States > Honolulu > The World's Best Island
Many people come to Hawaii thinking you can travel between the islands by ferry. In fact, it’s only possible in "Maui Nui" – a family of five islands that once ago were one. Molokai, Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe lie so close to Maui it seems you can reach out and touch them, creating a scenic bounty like none other, and phenomenal opportunities for adventure and exploration.
While you can’t visit Kahoolawe, which is reserved for native Hawaiians, the Marine Preserve of Molokini is one of the world’s premiere snorkeling and scuba spots. As for the main islands, Maui is consistently voted the “World’s Best Island”, for her stunning beauty, thrilling activities, incomparable golf, world-class resorts, award-winning cuisine, and endless beaches. And something more, too, something everyone calls “The Magic of Maui”.
Sister island Molokai is outdoor adventure at its finest – Mother Nature’s favorite Hawaiian island. Kayak and dive pristine reefs. Bike over soaring sea cliffs. Explore untouched valleys and beaches.
Secluded Lanai is an enticing island like no other. Home to two ultra-luxurious resorts, the isle is a perfect haven from the ordinary. Golf, archery, English clay shooting, luxurious spa treatments – plus spectacular scenery, cultural landmarks, and welcome peace and quiet.
