Hi there
I am from England but am planning a visit. Could I ask a question?

Which Island is the best for vegetarians? I see that you have loads over there in general. Thanks in advance

My wife and I have been to Maui 5 times. I'm vegan, she's lacto-ovo. We love it so much we haven't been able to bring ourselves to try another island. It's such a wonderful place and a great place for vegetarians to visit. We're from the Chicago area, and 2 of our most favorite restaurants are on Maui:

VEG OUT vegetarian in Haiku, and Maui Tacos (several locations) for cheap, fresh, Mexican fare with a unique Hawaiin twist. Other favorites: Polli's in Makawao has many items including their incredible vegan fajita's, BJ's pizza in Lahaina for a nice dinner with terrific local entertainment/musicians/singers, Cheez Burger in Paradise also in Lahaina has a good tofu burger, Bella Luna in/near Wailea for a beautiful sunset dinner, China boat in Kahana. In Paia there's a place (used to be called Pic-Nics) that has a terrific spinach-tofu burger, and they'll put together a picnic basket for you to take for a day trip.

And our favorite of all is Curry-in-a-Hurry in Kahului for all veg Indian cuisine

run by a wonderful couple Hans and Lori Lee. They are a must-see if you go to Maui.

And next to Curry-in-a-Hurry is one of several Down to Earth stores

http://www.downtoearth.org/ a vegetarian grocery chain with a carry-out buffet/deli.

One more thing, last we knew Dr. Michael Klaper http://www.vegsource.com/klaper/ was still on Maui.

Well that's just off the top of my head.

I vacationed on the Big Island in 2004, and had a great time. I hate eating out night after night, so I found a hotel with kitchens in the rooms. I planted myself in Hilo (the 'wet' side of the island) and took many hiking day trips. I visited the local farmer's market, and bought some bizarre stuff you can't find on the mainland. I found the Kona side of the island (the dry side) to be a bit too much like any other beach-oriented place I've been, so thankfully I didn't stay too long on that side. If you decide to vacation in Hilo, send me a PM and I'll give you some hints on where to stay/what to do.

Have a great trip!

Thanks so much for your advice and about PMing you. As soon as I get my trip together I may well do that. Thanks so much
