LANAI Island and MOLOKAI Island as Hawaii vacation destinations are often included with Maui Island, both smaller islands being only nine miles from Maui, and both linked to Maui by regular ferry service.

Both smaller islands are part of Maui County, so if you see a reference to Maui County, for example in the titles of guide books, realize that Maui County also includes Lanai Island and Molokai Island.


LANAI Island

Lanai is the least populous of the six tourist destination islands of Hawaii, with two luxury resort hotels.

Oahu is Hawaii’s most populous island, with over a million inhabitants in and around the capital city of Honolulu.

Big Island is the largest, and is so-called because its actual name is Hawaii, which is confusing, because it is the same as the name for all the islands as a group: Hawaii.

In addition to the six island tourist destinations listed above, Hawaii has several more islands and islets which are not tourist destinations:

NIIHAU is a Hawaiian island privately owned by the Robinson family who restrict all access to the island.

KAHOOLAWE is an uninhabited island that was used during WWII as a bombing target. Seen from Lahaina the profile has a shape similar to a humpback whale. And 'Kohola' (pronounced koh-hoh-lah) is the Hawaiian word for humpback whales that migrate to Hawaii every winter).

MOLOKINI is a small islet, the crescent-shaped rim of a volcano, between the Hawaiian islands of Maui and Kahoolawe that is a popular destination for snorkel boat trips.
