While many vacations are five to seven days long, we recommend staying for at least 10 days to enjoy your Hawaiian vacation. The time change is difficult to adjust to at first and takes about 3 days to get fully acclimated. So, allowing a couple days to get over the jet lag is important.
Oahu But if you just want an answer that most people would agree on, the best island in Hawaii for first-timers would be Oahu. Hawaii is dotted with eight striking islands but only six are major tourist destinations. They’re Hawaii (the Big Island), Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Lanai and Molokai.Jun 17, 2021
Travel by Ferry It is not currently possible to take a ferry directly from Oahu to the outer islands. Ferries run only between the islands of Maui and Lanai and between Maui and Molokai. Catch a ferry between Lahaina on Maui and Manele Bay on Lanai with the Maui-Lanai Expeditions company.Dec 1, 2017
