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
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
-- 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.
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!
-- 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
-- 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.
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.
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.
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.
