The Best Beaches for a Hawaii Vacation

The Hawaiian Islands top many people's list of places to vacation and, of course, hit the waves. Their seclusion and volcanic history have endowed them with some of the most stunning beaches on the planet, from scenic expanses of white sand to isolated coves. Whether you travel to Hawaii as a family, a couple or solo, there is an ocean oasis for you. To discover the one tailored to your tastes, GAYOT has chosen ten of the best beaches from Maui to the Big Island. Some are family-friendly with full public facilities, while others are romantic and remote. We've also made sure to include awesome spots for surfing, snorkeling and wildlife sightings. Keep your eyes open for honu (green sea turtles); they’re revered by Hawaiians and considered to be good luck!
