Traveling between Hawaii and other states in 2017 is easier than ever before.
Here’s how to get from San Francisco to Honolulu in less than an hour, or from the Big Island to Hawaii in less time than it takes to read this post.
Hawaii is a state where you’re almost always going to be traveling with a few extra miles.
There are three main ways to travel between Hawaii, which is divided into three main islands, the Big Islands, Maui, and Oahu.
The three islands have their own localities, but you’re going to need to take a detour somewhere in order to make it from one island to the other.
So, let’s start with our three favorite ways to go between Hawaii.
Hawaii’s three main island routesThere are three major routes that you can take between Hawaii’s three major islands:Hilo to Oahu via Hilo Island (2,900 miles)Maui to Oʻahu via Honolulu (3,600 miles)Kailua to O’ahu via Kailua Island (1,500 miles)The three main routes that are easiest to get to in 2017 are:Hiking Hawaii is easy.
If you’re new to Hawaii, the Hike is an easy, short, and free hike that’s available year round, but it’s also a great way to explore the island.
There’s also an easy hiking trail in Oʼahu’s popular Kona State Park that’s free to use.
To get to the Kona Trailhead, head to the Hilo Highway exit and head west until you see the Kāhului Bridge.
Follow the trail, and you’ll arrive at the trailhead at about 4 miles from the Hilaʻi entrance to the park.
Hiking Oʿahu is a more challenging hike.
It starts in Waikiki, takes you to the Big Sur Highway (the Kākīla Highway), and then continues along the Big West Coast Highway to Kailau.
The hike is only a 1.5-mile round trip, but because it’s a very technical hike, it’s definitely worth it.
For those of you who like to hike long distances, this is a great option.
Hike the Big Tree Highway to Maui (3.5 hours)From Kailuahi, head west to Waikuku, then head south on the Bigtree Highway for about 3.5 miles to the end of the road.
This hike starts at the end, and there are several campsites along the way.
For the most part, it takes about 45 minutes to reach the trailheads, which can be crowded at times, so if you’re not sure if you want to hike or just want to stay in one spot, it might be worth it to camp here.
From Waikua, head east along the highway for about 1.7 miles to an area that is easy to camp.
If there are other hikers in the area, be sure to let them know about you and your hike.

Don’t forget to bring some sunscreen and bug spray.
Hikes that are popular with tourists are generally in the Kīla, Kāheilo, and Kakaheila National Parks, but other hikes are popular among locals as well.
