Aloha Friday Wrap: Kauai and Oahu in one trip, Hawaiian Airlines’ newest sustainable partnership + MORE!

In need of some positive, uplifting news and tips amid the current travel climate? Say ‘aloha’ to this wrap.

Two holidays in one: Kauai and Oahu

With six islands open for exploration in Hawaii, combining at least two of them into an itinerary can prove to be a beautiful, contrasting experience.

It’s worth your clients considering a Kauai-Oahu holiday combination – it’s like having two Hawaii vacations in one!

Kauai presents a country escape with unmatched natural scenery, almost-deserted beaches, and a raft of rural offerings. Oahu provides a sun-kissed urban adventure with premier shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities.

Enable your clients to enjoy the best of both islands together with this nine-day itinerary.
