Oahu Vs Big Island

Thinking about traveling to the islands and want to know more about the largest island in the Hawaiian island chain, Hawaii Island or the smallest, but most populous, Oahu? What are the major differences and what are the draws? We answer those questions and more!
We discuss housing/lodging, transportation, entertainment, beaches, geography, vibe and your responsibility to bring Aloha with you and be pono! This is also great info if you are looking to make a move to the islands, as well.

What is Pono you ask? Being righteous, a moral responsibility/ balance. Take the Pono pledge to learn more about doing what is right as a visitor before you arrive. Mahalo! https://www.ponopledge.com

What is it like to live in Hawaii? We moved to Kailua Kona on Hawaii Island in 2005 with our family. I wrote a book, “1 Year, 2 Kids, 800 Sq Ft – The Adventure of a Small Family on the Big Island of Hawaii”. about our first year on the island and also included “20/20” insights to provide a glimpse into life in West Hawaii.
Buy the book as a PDF or a hard copy!
