1 Safest Cities in Hawaii
No. 1 Honolulu
Honolulu is the capital and by far the largest city in Hawaii, with a population of over 345,000. Despite being the gateway to one of the country’s most sought after destinations, the crime rate in Honolulu is comparable to other large cities. It’s only rated safer than 8% of cities in the nation, according to Neighborhood Scout. Markers for financial security in Honolulu are good, with unemployment similar to the national average, access to internet higher than average, and median household income well over $100,000 a year. Still, cost of living is higher than most of the country, with median annual rent approaching $30,000.

Hawaii State Safety
Natural Disaster Safety
Even though Hawaii is a veritable paradise, the islands are still at risk for a variety of natural disasters. Flooding, hurricanes, tsunamis, lava flows and earthquakes are all real threats in Hawaii. Most common among these are flash floods, which can come suddenly, turning small rivers into raging torrents very quickly. Meanwhile, Hawaii is the state with the greatest risk of tsunamis, recording about one per year, with major damage occurring about every seven years.
Like the rest of the country, Hawaii’s most common causes of death are heart disease and cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Drug related deaths are comparatively low in Hawaii, but they do happen — there were 13.3 drug deaths per 100,000 residents in 2019, which ranks Hawaii 12th-healthiest in the nation in this category. Meanwhile, the state ranks eighth in the country in access to medical doctors, with 193.9 primary care physicians per 100,000 residents. Hawaii sits in the middle of the pack when it comes to mental health, ranking 24th with 250 mental health providers per 100,000 residents. Clean air is abundant in Hawaii — the archipelago ranks sixth in the country in air quality, in a tight race with the top five states.
