Looking at a February trip

If you dive, definitely do the manta ray night dive in Kona


Pick your island(s) first - you can assume 3-4 days per island minimum. Each is going to give you a pretty different experience, so a lot depends on what type of trip you’re trying to have! Assuming you’re not thinking lanai/Molokai, the below should get you started…feel free to DM once you decide

Oahu - only real city (Honolulu), great food/drinks, some good hikes and beaches, great surfing and snorkeling. Easiest entry if you’re not sure how to travel
Maui - best all-around Hawaiian island for a tourist imo, incredible beaches and snorkeling, whale season, good hikes and waterfall access, feels like a vacation spot
Big Island - very chill, volcanoes, awesome snorkeling on Kona side (and agree with SC1 on manta dive! You can also do it if you don’t scuba), low-key, no real nightlife/food scene
Kauai - super high end or super local, incredible hikes, great beaches, everything will close by 9pm


Matsumoto Shave Ice!!! Oahu!!!


Search this bowl. Hawaii is a top 5 post in this forum
