2. Moloka'i, Hawaii
There’s no doubt that all the islands of Hawaii are beautiful, but if you want yours to be a slice of unspoiled Polynesian paradise, you should head to Moloka’i. Protected from the tourist development seen elsewhere in the state, Moloka’i looks to remain one of the great islands for eco-tourism. The island has incredible landscapes, including a forested plateau which rises more than 4,000 feet above sea level, which is wonderful for hikes and wildlife spotting. Scenic mountain trails enjoy wonderful views of hills and valleys, tropical fruit orchards and unlike the main Hawaiian islands where the beaches are littered with surfers and sunbathers, on Moloka’i, many of the beaches are isolated and deserted.
