Hawaii as a vacation spot.

Maui

For many, Hawaii is a bucket list vacation spot. However, Hawaii is more than one island. Maui, Oahu, Lanai, Kauai, and the island of Hawaii are a few popular Hawaii destinations. Each island has its personality and interesting sights. When considering Hawaii as a vacation spot, consider which island would be best for the activities you plan to do. Here are a few ideas you should know about Hawaii before you go to Hawaii.

The island of Maui is a popular spot for visitors.  It’s famous for its beaches.  In the winter months, tourists can often see humpback whales.  Travelers can surf, windsurf, snorkel, or lay on the beach.  Oahu is where the more popular destination of Honolulu is found.  Here you can find bustling city life as well as laid-back surf towns. When choosing this island, there are many options of activities to choose.  Lanai is one of the smallest islands in Hawaii. It is also more known for its luxurious resorts and world-class golf resorts.  It is also great for 4-wheel driving on its rugged back roads and remote locations.  On the island of Kauai, you will find tropical rainforests, rivers, and waterfalls.  You will see sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs. Here you can find many outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, fishing, and ziplining. The island of Hawaii is best known as the Big Island.  Here you can find many different climates, from tropical to cooler temperatures. You can experience snow in Maunakea, lush valleys in Hilo, or jet-black sand beaches.

For those interested in visiting Hawaii, there are many choices.  Although the weather is warm all year round, higher elevations will require a jacket.  All beaches in Hawaii are public, but it can be a bit expensive to dine out. It is also important to understand the many Covid restrictions that tourists may experience when visiting the island. As always, research and know before you go.

    Based on your commentary I think that I would love to see the black sand beaches of Hawaii.

      If you’ve never seen black sand beaches then it should be on your bucket list. A Hawaii vacation can let you experience them all.

        I’ve been to Maui and seen the black sand beaches. It is honestly the most beautiful place I’ve visited. I’d love to see the Humpback whales in the winter. That would be amazing!

          It is amazing and sometimes they are so playful. I went out a few times because I missed so much trying to take pictures. The last time was just to watch.
