Being unique located in the middle of the Pacific, the State of Hawaii appeals to a broader market of Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Transgender individuals, couples and families who travel not only from island to island but also from all over the United States (West Coast and East Coast and the South), Australia, Canada, Japan and Mexico just to name a few. For those from the LGBT community looking for a more lively city like nightlife the Island of Oahu is the best choice for a greater variety of Bars & Nightclubs that cater specifically to the gay local or traveler. However, if you're looking for more of a balance of relaxation, learning Hawaii history and yet be able to at times head to a gay bar or nightclub Kailua-Kona on the Island of Hawaii (Big Island) may be better suited for you. Maui and Kauai don't necessarily have bars and nightclubs designated as "Gay" but do offer small venues that are gay-friendly. Those planning to visit the state for a longer period of time also many times choose to keep Oahu as their main base and travel for a couple of days for sightseeing on the neighboring islands with the Island of Hawaii and Maui being the top two choices.
