Travelling yo Maui and kuai would like to go to pearl harbor

Best way to go from Maui or kuai to Pearl Harbor for a day. Is it better to stay one day less in either place and spend the night in Oahu.?

You would fly.

Yes.

See the NPS website and the Top Questions about Pearl Harbor. (TQs are on right side of page on O`ahu forum.)

Marie, if you haven't yet bought tickets, then I would stop on Oahu for a night or two before going on to your other choices.

How long is your trip, total?

How many days will you have on Maui? On Kaua'i?

Have you booked your flights?

If not, you could fly into HNL or out of HNL from the mainland (or wherever home is) to potentially save some $ on airfare costs. Check the options to know for sure.

I would take one day from Maui and Kauai and spend 2 nights on Oahu. You would have the full next day to explore Pearl Harbor without rushing around to catch a flight out to the next island.

I would give up a day on Maui and a day on Kauai.

In two days on Oahu, you can go to Pearl Harbor and take the USS Arizona Memorial tour, get a taste of Waikiki and take a driving tour of Oahu. Oahu has the most beaches of any Hawaii island and many of the best beaches in Hawaii.

I would go even further and take two nights each from Maui and Kauai and spend them on Oahu. Oahu really shouldn't be shortchanged, it has the best beaches, the best (by FAR) food, and lots of great history. If you can do 5/5/4, I would.

I would not contort your trip. Either give Oahu five days minimum or skip it altogether this trip.

Oahu has a great deal to offer beyond Pearl Harbor!
