Using the most recent Census data, we can tell you about all the places in Hawaii with a focus on the biggest. We update the data each year and this is our fourth time doing this.

How We Determined The Largest Cities In Hawaii

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Aloha State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Hawaii from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Urban Honolulu.

The smallest? Discovery Harbour, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.

Review Of Kailua Cdp (Honolulu County) by HomeSnacks User

Low crime, decent schools, fantastic quality of life! If you like beautiful beaches, ocean living, and a small town feel, then you'll love Kailua!
