One of the more frequently asked questions I receive is from a person who only has a day on an island wanting suggestion for what to see and do in one day. Since I’ve vacationed on all the islands multiple times, I feel that I have an excellent perspective for what the top sights and attractions are.
I created this series of posts detailing what I would do if I were visiting each Hawaiian Island for the first time and only for one day. This series of suggestions will benefit those who are:
- on a cruise
- on a long layover from a transpacific flight
- on a business trip to Hawaii and adding a day for sight-seeing
- interested in island hopping day trips
So, here are my top recommendations for what to see and do in a short amount of time for:
- Kauai one-day itinerary
- Oahu one-day itinerary
- Maui one-day itinerary
- Big Island
These one-day itineraries involve renting a car. Be sure and see our tips for Hawaii car rental.
