Delta Points Hawaii photo (1)

Have you ever been to Hawaii? It really is a nice place to visit. I mean from the warm breeze to the wildlife.

Oh, then there are the tropical drinks. Who does not like a fruity drink that comes with its own back scratcher.

The there is just laying by the pool and enjoying watching airplanes go by, about to land and bring more happy people to the islands (and take sad faced little ones away)!

  1. Chris says:

    Haven’t been yet, but plan on riding the Honolulu Century (100 mile bike ride) next year.

  2. jyee says:

    Yes! I just went to Maui this past February (and earned a lot of miles on the trip). My favorite day there wasn’t on the beach or the usual tourist things, it was a trip to the Ocean Vodka distillery, where they’re collecting and cataloging previously undocumented native species of sugar cane… then using the sugar to make vodka!

  3. Renee says:

    My favorite island is Kauai . We love the St. Regis there.

  4. Tar000 says:

    Have never been to Hawaii! Would love to though!

  5. Rabbit says:

    I’ve never been to Hawaii but would love to go!

  6. Abhishek D says:

    I live in Honolulu and my favorite is Lanikai Beach, Kailua!

  7. Kijo says:

    We have been to Kauai several times and love the Grand Hyatt in Poipu. Molokai is also a beautiful island, but definitely much less developed from a tourist stand point. The lack of tourism infrastructure is great if you want to experience “old” Hawaii.

  8. Clare N says:

    Have been twice. Enjoyed the inter-island cruise on The Pride of America most.

  9. Michael says:

    I’ve been once in middle school, a long long time ago. My favorite island is Kauai! I love snorkeling with the fishes.

  10. Russell says:

    Never Been. Would love to go some day.

  11. Chris says:

    No, but I am planning on going in the next 2 to 3 years.

  12. Kay says:

    Yes, only to Honolulu. The hike up Diamond head was beautiful.

  13. Young_Tho®ough says:

    Nope too far to go and too expensive to come back with no visa stamp. Gotta put this GE to use.

  14. Jeff says:

    We enjoyed staying on the West side at the Marriott resort in Oahu a few months back.

  15. Kyle says:

    My plan is the get to Maui next year for a honeymoon. Can’t wait.

  16. Pmv says:

    Lived there three years and have visited many times before and since! Favorite restaurant is a small Vietnamese chain called Bale on most of the islands. Nothing like a lemongrass chicken sandwich on a crisp roll to take to the beach!

  17. Steve says:


  18. Rob says:

    I know of an old co-worker going to Hawaii. He is very happy about the transfer.

  19. Scott Travel says:

    I have never been but it’s next on my list after Italy this summer.

  20. ajm says:

    Does a layover count?

  21. Sterling says:

    A long time ago as a kid, Kona surf I believe was a favorite of the fam.

  22. Dan says:

    I haven’t been to HI but it is on the list!

  23. Sam says:

    I have never been to Hawaii but I want to go so so bad. It’s definitely on my bucket list.

  24. Richard says:

    Yes, Maui!

  25. Julia says:

    Not yet, but it’s definitely on the list!

  26. Jesse says:

    Never been, but would love to go!

  27. PCB says:

    Have been to three of the islands and I think the big island is the best. It also has most of the climate zones!

  28. Dainya says:

    I have been to Maui, I was only 15 though, would love to back as adult! My favorite part was snorkeling, so beautiful!!

  29. Drew says:

    Not yet, but it is on my list of places to visit

  30. pawtim says:

    I’ve been fortunate enough to go once, so far, on a Pride of America cruise. Fantastic! Visited four different islands — folks who’ve only visited one or two are really missing out! Get out there and explore the whole state!

    By the way, your photo of the tropical drink just looks like a cola! Can’t you come up with a more exciting tropical drink photo? :-)

  31. thomas s says:

    yes, went to Kauai. Spent a few years of points for the extended family to go. It was amazing, and even had a stop to Honolulu to visit Pearl Harbor.

  32. ed says:

    been there once. really enjoyed the time in Maui.

  33. Went to Hawaii once when I was 3… but I don’t remember it! I did fly first class though :)

  34. fb says:

    Been to Maui and Oahu. The crater on maui is amazing and the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor is a must if for nothing else but to pay respects.

  35. Gavin says:

    I have never been to Hawaii..hope to do so soon though..

  36. Arthur H says:

    Never been to Hawaii, but I’ll have a long layover there in Jan while returning from Australia and plan to explore the area.

  37. BJ says:

    Been many times! Hands down, kapalua.

  38. md9802 says:

    Loved the relaxed vibe of Hilo on the Big Island.

  39. Layla says:

    I have been to Honolulu twice. Both times work related and I was only there for 25 hours each time. The NWA flight crews who served on my inbound also worked my outbound after their required rest. I was among the sad faced!

  40. kaysmom says:

    Never been…hoping to go someday!!

  41. sil says:

    Have never been but planning on early retirement there. What is the best place weather wise?

  42. Linda says:

    We loved Kauai, and especially a hike in Waimea Canyon.

  43. BP says:

    LOVE the northside of Kauai, especially the Princeville area. The beaches on the north side offer a great variety and for the most part you can find a beach and fill like you’re the only one on the beach. The snorkeling is amazing and so are the sunsets!

  44. Mike says:

    I have been to Maui and my favorite part was the road to Hana!

  45. Margita says:

    Yes, several times. And planning a family trip for next March to the big island.

  46. Travis says:

    Love the big island. So much to see and do. Aloha

  47. Mark R. says:

    One of my favorite places is Manoa Falls on Oahu. After hiking there it’s off to the shaved ice stand!

  48. Danny says:

    I spent a month on Kauai volunteering, so I was lucky enough to enjoy a more local experience of this breathtaking island. My favorite spots were the overlooking the water after hiking to the top of the waterfall and sitting under the big mango tree at the local beach at dusk. There was nothing more peaceful than coming to the beach after a day of building houses, working at the food shelter, or playing with the kids at the boys and girls club. Kauai is the best!

  49. SF says:

    Haven’t been but trying to put together a MR with a couple of nights at HNL.

  50. Corey says:

    I have not but would like to. My fiancée took a helicopter trip over a volcano in Hawaii and said it was great

  51. SK says:

    I have been to Hawai once, 20 years ago. Time to revisit!

  52. Ryan M says:

    Yes, and my favorite place is Maui. There is so much to do there.

  53. Wes says:

    I have been. My favorite places were the ones most people don’t know exist!

  54. Ari k says:

    Dozens of times to Oahu for work, never enough time to actually explore

  55. Adam says:

    North shor of Oahu!

  56. GetToThePoints says:

    I haven’t been yet but it is on our list. Just have to get the time to do it!!

  57. BOShappyflyer says:

    I’ve never been to hawaii. the more I read about it, the more I want to visit!

  58. Brian says:

    Been two times. Favorite place has to be Kona.

  59. Mike B says:

    I have not been but it’s on my bucket list.

  60. VH says:

    We went in 2005. It’s hard to single out one favorite thing, but Hanauma Bay snorkeling was a highlight. I especially liked that they had “prescription” masks. My eyes are so bad! It was wonderful to be able to see everything underwater!

  61. Michelle O says:

    We’re going with my sister and brother-in-law for a week in October to the Big Island.

  62. iwantmoremiles says:

    Tough choice. Kauai if I have to choose one.

  63. Lily says:

    I’ve never been to Hawaii. I would love to go!

  64. Caroline says:

    I haven’t been yet, but saving those points to check it off the bucket list someday!

  65. Emman P. says:

    Haven’t been there yet, but I plan to do it next year! I want to visit Oahu and Maui!

  66. john says:

    I’ve been to Hawaii many times, and its hard to pick one favorite. The most memorable would be the summit of Mauna Kea, the world’s “tallest” mountain, and the Na Pali coast on Kauai.

  67. JRG says:

    Haven’t been; would love to take the wife!

  68. JP says:

    Only was there once when I was young and went to Oahu and Maui. Of those, I preferred Maui, but would like to visit Kauai.

  69. Greg M says:

    I have been able to visit Hawaii previously on four occasions and will be returning this coming October. My wife and I consider the Big Island our favorite and enjoy staying at the King Kamehameha Hotel in Kona.

  70. Liz says:

    I have never been, but it’s definitely on my short list of places to go!

  71. M says:

    I have only been to Oahu and favorite place is North Shore, but plan to go to the other islands too.

  72. Bradhattan says:

    I have never been to Hawaii – being near Great Lakes,the Caribbean was closer! Recent deals are making it look a lot cheaper – this year maybe?

  73. Carol Blue says:

    Hawaii is on my bucket list ….. I’m hopeful :)

  74. Virginia Jeffrey's says:

    Yes, I have traveled to Hawaii. Maui is a beautiful island with lots to see and do. The beach & snorkeling are my favorite activities.

  75. Randy says:

    We have absolutely ZERO interest in going to the islands. Same goes for Alaska, Africa, South America, and any place the draw is scenery. Europe is so much more intersting.

  76. GREG Z says:


  77. Nancy Petrotta says:

    Been to Honolulu many years ago, but would kill to see the rest of the Islands someday!

  78. Phil R says:

    I have been to Oahu and Maui. I like the beaches on Maui, just relaxing in the sun.

  79. Nancy Petrotta says:

    Been to Honolulu, but would kill to see Maui and Kauai!

  80. Jeremy Kaplan says:

    I have never been although I’d love to at some point! Most of our vacations are local to New England but thankfully my work lets me travel around the country and even to places like Korea and Taiwan…. :-)

  81. Chris says:

    I have to travel to Oahu 2 or more times a year for work. I know, right! So far I have visited the Big Island and Kauai, so in the future I want to see Maui and Molukai. Hawaiian Airlines is great.

  82. Victor says:

    Yes, everything about Maui was great!

  83. Christina Oddy says:

    never been but would love to visit the Aulani resort!

  84. DVMonthego says:

  86. kevin says:

    Anywhere I can jeep! especially to the top of a volcano!

  87. MSPDeltaDude says:

    I’ve been lucky to go 4 times in the last 3 years. I really like The Big Island. Didn’t feel like a tourist so much and made good friends with some locals.

  88. Julie C says:

    Have never been to Hawaii, but would love to see stairway to heaven on Oahu, Hawaii,
    Rainbow Eucalyptus trees on Maui, Hawaii
    Queens bath in Kauai, Hawaii and Hawai’i Volcano National Park.

  89. Kathy Carter says:

    No, I haven’t been but we have been invited to go with friends next April which would be our 27th anniversary so I think it should be a plan, don’t you?

  90. Anita B says:

    I went 6 years ago and it wasn’t as fun because I had To work. And my fiancé way there. Who wants to go lay out on the beach with coworkers ?

  91. Luke Coyne says:

    Been to Kauai and was amazed by the scenery. Slow paced and wonderful.

    I’ve been fortunate to go 13 times. Next month we are going 1st class, non-stop from ATL using low tier Skymiles (yes it can be done). I’ve been to six of the major islands and like the Big Island best for its hidden beaches- best in the world.

  97. Shannon M. says:

    Maui and The Big Island. Heading back to Maui soon to check out the new Hyatt Andaz. Hana is amazing there, if not slightly difficult to get to.

  98. Holly Rylee says:

    Whale watching on Maui – need I say more?

  99. J. says:

  112. Adam says:

    I haven’t been yet, but we’re planning on going next year…

  113. JP Traveler says:

    Just returned from 2 weeks there with the family. (Got all 4 of us there using Delta points, of course!). Loved the charm of Paia on Maui. Now, we truly know what Jack from Lost meant when he said, “we have to go back to the island.”

  114. Nancy H says:

    I won’t say No, I’ll say not yet.

  122. Christine says:

    I have been to Hawaii. Maui was absolutely my most favorite part of the trip.

  124. Angela says:

    I’ve been to Kauai and I love Hanalay Bay

  125. Candace says:

    We have been to Hawaii and our favorite spot is Lahaina. We like to stroll up and down the beach in the evening and check out all the activity at the other hotels!

  126. Karl P says:

    I like to drive up Haleakela on Maui. So cool to drive up a volcano, but watch out for the people on bikes going down!

  151. Teresa P says:

    Never been – but I will someday!

  152. Mary Beth says:

    I have visited Hawaii many times and fell in love with it so much we retired here in 2012! I like the Kona side of the Big Island to live as it is very relaxed, but Oahu has more activities and night life if that is what you are looking for in a vacation. All of the islands have great ocean activities.

    Three times to Hawaii in total. Love the main street USA feel of Maui – with an ocean next door!

  163. Janet says:

    Love the North Shore of Oahu! Trying to get enough ff miles to go again.

    Went on a four island tour several years ago. Best part was the Kona Coast on the Big Island when massive waves were rolling in.

  165. Wayne says:

  169. Randy says:

    Never been but would love to go!

  170. robert weisberg says:

    I have not been to HAWAII in a long time. Its a great place. I want to go to Maui again and maybe another island. Oahu is too much like Ft Lauderdale for me. But the Pearl Harbor exhibit is there.


  171. Christian says:

    I’ve never been, but looking at Asia next year, so a stopover may be in the cards.

  172. TexasYankee says:

    Yes I have been to HI … 2 stays for my employer’s National Sales Meetings, 2 different week long trips to Maui, and I have made 5 different Maui Mileage Runs and did not leave the airport! My favorite was the bicycle ride down the volcano on Maui which is best not to do with a hangover!

  173. Peter says:

    I want to go to Maui

  174. Dan says:

    Yes, to Oahu twice and Maui. I really liked Maui.

  178. Patrick says:

    Been to Mandarin Oriental in Oahu…amazing

  179. Lisa says:

    I’ve been to Maui twice, and I’m hoping to go back again this year with my husband, who has never been.

    We have been there many times. Lanikai Beach is one favorite on Oahu; however, Kauai has many locations that are great.

  181. Michael M MA says:

    Have been to Oahu several times. With all the hustle and bustle of the city area, the beach area in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village is a gem.

    In the old NWA days I would get a free stopover in Honolulu on the way back from Japan enroute to the USA and head to Waikiki beach for a few hours, then back to the then NWA club lounge and back to the USA

  185. Chris says:

    Have been a couple of times. really enjoy the Big Island, the volcano, good snorkeling.

  186. Ralph says:

    No I have not been there but would like to visit.

  187. RobRob says:

    Oh yeah – LOVE Hawaii! Life’s goal is to visit each island…just a couple more to go! Maui, though, is my Happy Place. Absolutely love the island and her people. And the fruity drinks. :)

  188. Hannah says:

    Never been, but it’s on my list.

  189. JOHN says:

    Tough to beat Kuaui for beauty byt Waikiki is a blast.

  190. MichaelJ says:

    We have been there 2 times – once just my wife and I and once our entire family of 8 (which cost us a mere $80 total for round trip airfare – using points from various programs combined and then a $10 per person airport tax). Our favorite is Kauai and we love finding great unique places to stay through local vacation rentals.

  191. Bryan Schmiedeler says:

    I have never been but would love to go!

  192. Bob says:

    The Shore Bird Restaurant on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu (Feb 2010). You buy your meats raw and cook them yourself on a giant barbecue. They also have excellent drinks and great Happy Hour specials!

  193. JC says:

    I’ve never been to Hawaii but I’m racking up my miles and points to take my kids and wife…best place I’ve been to besides the beaches in my hometown Miami…Cancun. I love the beach.

  194. Uri Hadelsberg says:

    Went to both HNL and Maui, liked Honolulu better!

  195. Cheryl says:

    Never been but really want to visit family and friends in Oahu

    Yes, been. Favorite parts are AWAY from prime tourist areas,, off the beaten path is more fun.

  197. Andrew P says:

    I’ve been twice, and my favorite place to go is Volcanoes National Park. Such a beautiful natural wonder!

    Just came back from Hawaii! Love the beach.

  206. Russ says:

    We’ve been to Maui, Oahu, Molokai, Kauai, and the Big (Hilo and Kona sides). If I have to pick just one, my fave would be Hilo. Just seems more genuine Hawai’i.

  207. Chris says:

    Yes I have been to Hawaii on a mileage run last fall! Only visited Honolulu but I really liked the special thing they do on the beach with dancing, a huge pig, and such! Aloha!

  208. Jason says:

    Hawaii is the home of my soul. Lived there for 10 yrs, then met my husband and had to move to Florida for his job. 30 yrs later still in florida I go HOME every chance i get and love Maui and Oahu and the Big Island. and the great production of Movies ect there. My ashes will be spread out past Diamond Head where I was married on a catamaran, with hula dancers and our wedding service in English and Hawaiian surrounded by loved ones out in my beloved ocean at sunset New Years Ever. sigh…..

  211. Joanthan says:

    Never been, but I do owe my wife a beach vacation so it may be in the near future.
