The Neighbor Islands

(p.198) Chapter Eight The Neighbor Islands
Developing a Dream Destination

James Mak

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the growth of tourism in the Neighbor Islands. Long considered peripheral to more attractive tourist destinations such as Honolulu, Hawaii’s Neighbor Islands have had the disadvantage of location in that, prior to the arrival of mass tourism, trips to these islands proved inconvenient. There was also much less to do on these outer isles, as they were “more rural, less urbanized, and far less sophisticated” than Honolulu. Tourism on the Neighbor Islands came alive beginning in the mid-1960s, and by the early 1990s, half of Hawaii’s visitor accommodations units were on the Neighbor Islands. The development of hotels and tourist arrivals progressed in tandem.
