How to Enjoy your Hawaii Vacation to the Fullest
Fiery sunsets, tropical cocktails and sapphire-blue waters that stretch out as far as the eye can see… there’s no denying that Hawaii is a magical place. Where else in the world can you watch molten red lava hitting the surface of the ocean in clouds of steam? Whether you’re a creature of leisure or an adventurer, you won’t run out of things to do and places to discover when vacationing on one of Hawaii’s beautiful islands.
Reach new heights
Hawaii is a dream comes true for travelers who enjoy a challenge, and motivated hikers will see their efforts well rewarded. Make your way to Mount Haleakala in Maui at just the right time of day, and you’ll catch the sun setting on a breathtaking volcanic landscape. Or hop in your care and drive along the Road to Hana for scenic views and plenty of photo-ops.
One of the most beautiful (and dangerous) hikes in the world, the Kalalau Trail on Kauai island promises a heart-racing experience. Those willing to live life on the edge will come home from their trip with thrilling tales of wild encounters and hazardous climbs. Take note - this adventure is for experienced hikers only. Newbies or parents travelling with kids will find family-friendly trails at Waimea Canyon national park.
Vacationers who want to witness Hawaii’s awesome natural wonders will be blown away by Kilauea on Big Island. We highly recommend you take a helicopter tour to soar above Hawaii’s most active volcano, a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget. Other unique activities on Big Island include visiting Mauna Kea’s snowy summit and the more family-friendly hike to Wailuku River State Park’s Rainbow Falls.
Make a splash
If you’ve ever dreamed of riding waves, your Hawaii vacation is the perfect moment to start! Beginner surfers will be able to choose from a variety of surf schools or one-on-one instructors on Hanalei Beach in Kauai. Advanced surfers will find many challenging waves to ride on every island, including legendary surf-sites like Maui’s Jaws, and Oahu’s Waimea Bay and legendary North Shore.
From deep-sea fishing to snorkeling adventures and romantic sunset cruises, there is more than one way to earn your sea legs in Hawaii. From September to March you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of humpback whales frolicking along Maui’s shores. Feel safer on dry land? These gentle giants are sometimes visible from the beach!
If you’re a self-proclaimed beach bum, you’re in for a treat! There is no shortage of long stretches of sandy beaches - of every color - and unspoiled secret coves in Hawaii. On Big Island’s green sand beach at Papakolea, you’ll witness the beauty of golden-green sands and turquoise waters contrasting with ocean carved volcanic cliffs. Or make your way to Punalu’u black sand beach, where you have a good chance of witnessing Hawksbill and Green turtles basking in the sun.
Book some Tee Time
