Have you heard about the Hawaiian Island that’s so secret it earned the nickname “The Forbidden Island”? Anyone with a basic familiarity of Hawaii knows that the tropical tourist destination, renowned for having some of the most stunning beaches in the entire world, is actually a system of islands made up of unique and distinctive landscapes. The six major islands to visit include Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and the island of Hawaii.
Any other islands off limits?
Located a scant 17 miles off the coast of Kauai, Niihau may be geographically near, but it’s a world apart. Despite having a number of permanent residents, the island has no roads, no cars, no stores, no restaurants, no internet, no electricity, and no indoor plumbing. Even though people do live there year round, they have very little contact with the outside world.
Not many visit Kahoolawe, either.
