Hawaii

Perfect weather. Floral-perfumed air. Volcanic splendor. Brilliant rainbows. Secret waterfalls. Natural beauties. Splended activities. Charming polynesian hospitality. Need I say more? Travelers are in love with Hawai'i, and for good reasons. Whether you're looking for a little rest & relaxation, incredible snorkeling and diving, a sunny spot to relish the family, or the thrill of an active volcano, Hawaii offers you plenty.

Kaua'i -- The Island of Discovery -- if you are dreaming of a tropical getaway, Kaua'i might be your answer. Mother Nature's beauty is breathtaking on this island, complete with waterfalls, canyons, and beaches. Volcanic mountains are your skyline, as no building can be higher than the tallest coconut tree (that is, 40 feet). Hiking and watersports are excellent as well.

O'ahu -- Where Aloha Begins -- this island is home of Honolulu and Waikiki (the busiest and most famous beach in Hawaii). The majority of accomodations are in Waikiki, where you'll find an array of shopping and dining options. Rent a car for a day (or a week), or enjoy the island's bus service to get out and see this island. The sleepy area of the North Shore is a must-see for honeymooners, and the Polynesian Cultural Center is great for cultural enthusiasts. Accomodations range from modest to luxury, suiting everyone's budget and taste. O'ahu is much more than just a nice beach, and a luau and at least one day driving to explore the island is essential.

Maui -- The Magic Isle -- this just might be the island you're envisioning when you think of waterfalls, volcanic peaks, pristine beaches, and lush rainforests. Maui offers an excellent balance of natural beauty and cultural experiences (ah, the Aloha spirit). Wailea beach is considered the best beach in the world. And Maui is known for it's romantic sunsets. Condos, resorts, and small hotels offer a wide range of accomodations to suit most budgets.

Hawai'i's Big Island -- Aloha Spoken Here -- the newest Hawaiin island (and still growing) is also the biggest island. Witness the birth of new land at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (the surreal landscape of the lava fields is truly worth the trip alone). Watching the lava flow just before sunset is breathtaking. A rental car is a must considering the size of the island and the many things to see and explore. The diversity is immense -- excellent scuba diving, rainforests, waterfalls, green and black sand beaches, and golf. This list goes on!

Lana'i -- The Secluded Island -- priced only for the luxury traveler, Lana'i offers an unspoiled beauty worlds apart from her busier sisters. There are only 30 miles of paved roads on this island. This is Dole's original "pineapple island," though the pineapple industry was phased out about ten years ago, being replaced by a more diverse agriculture economy.

Moloka'i -- Hawaiian by Nature -- this long island is perhaps best known for the leprosy colony operated by Father Damien over 120 years ago. This island offers plenty for those who seek solitude and an authentic Hawaiian experience.

Multiple Islands
Can't decide which island is best for you? Island hopping is a popular way to experience the Hawaiian islands. Split your stay between two islands (or three, time permitting). Be sure to give at least 3 nights per island, or you may feel rushed.

The All-Inclusive Option
Looking for an all-inclusive resort in Hawaii? There aren't any. A few hotels offer breakfast options, but you won't find the all-inclusive resort so common in the Caribbean and Mexico. Don't let that discourage you from visiting Hawaii! If it suits your fancy, you can opt instead for a cruise of the Hawaiian islands.

Cruising Hawaii
Several cruise lines offer Hawaiian itineraries. Norwegian Cruise Line is the only cruise line offering year-round Hawaiian cruises, but many of the others offer special Hawaiian itineraries.

Hawaii is for...romance
The tropical, verdant islands of Hawaii offer some of nature's finest romantic settings. Imagine dining on a beach at sunset. Discovering a waterfall tucked away in lush vegetation. Or, late breakfasts in bed in an elegant oceanfront suite. Try a helicopter ride to discover Maui or Kauai together. Or, perhaps his & hers massage treatments. Be as active as you'd like, with golf, scuba, snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding, and hiking. And, imagine rounding the evening with a luau, or fine international cuisine offered throughout the islands.
