Hawaii Travel Planner

Enjoying a Hawaii vacation is easy.  Here are some fun trip ideas, destinations and climate information to help you plan your Hawaii getaway.

Hawaii has six islands:  one of them is just right for you.

Kaua’i, the “Island of Discovery” is the oldest of the islands.  Bedecked in tropical forests, cascading waterfalls and golden sand beaches, Kaua’i shows her gritty side with the Năpali Coast, 15 miles of vertical cliffs edging the northwest coast of the island.  Over 60 films and television programs have been shot here.  Famous golf courses and breathtaking natural wonders, like 3500 ft deep Waimea Canyon, Kőke’e State Park, and Wailua Falls are just as memorable as the unique plants and animals, like the elusive Hawaiian monk seals.

O’ahu, the heart of Hawaii, is 597 square miles.  The average temperature is 75-85°F.  Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial is open daily, and sits just above the famous battleship where she was sunk on December 7, 1941.

Moloka’i is a small island, just 38 miles long and 10 miles wide.  Moloka’i  offers a wide range of places to stay and things to do for the traveler who is looking for a more natural experience, off the beaten path.

Lana’i is also off the beaten path, with about 3,000 residents.  Visitors will need four-wheel drive to see the petroglyphs

(pre-historic rock art) at Kaiolohia Bay (Shipwreck Beach), where they can also see, of course, the remains of a ship dating back to World War II.Maui’s southern coast is lined with beautiful resorts, but it also has natural wonders.  An estimated 3,000 humpback whales return to Maui’s warm waters each December.  The Silversword plant, found only above the 6,000 foot level on Haleakală, lives up to 50 years and ends its life in a majestic display of hundreds of purple flowers.

Hawaii’s Big Island is the largest and newest of the bunch, and it’s still growing daily due to fiery additions from its active volcano Kĩlauea.  Hawaii Volcanoes National Park features the world’s most active volcano.  Thermal pools, ancient petroglyphs, golf courses, snorkeling, and of course surfing, make the Big Island a place to remember.  Ka Lae (South Point) in the Ka’ū district is probably where the first Polynesians landed 1,500 years ago, and is also the southernmost point in the US.
