Planning a trip to Hawaii? Then consider looking into a Hawaii travel package. You’ll find many different offers of to spend your Hawaii vacation. You can get a package that will allow you to spend all your time on one island or to visit multiple islands during your visit.
Though, when you look around many places say unless you’ve been to Hawaii before you should pick just for one island for your first visit. The more seasoned traveler, who’s been to Hawaii before, will know they what to do and see among the different islands.
So to help you out, we will look at some of the things to do in the islands. That way picking your Hawaii travel package should be a bit easier.
First we will look at the Big Island of Hawaii. You’ll definitely want to see the lava flows at Kilauea volcano, which you can do by helicopter or by foot. In the same day you can go snow-skiing on the slopes of Mauna Kea and bathe in the sun and warm sand on a Big Island beach. You can hike through rainforests and see rare plants and orchids, view ancient Petroglyphs or, if you are adventurous, you can try your luck catching a Marlin on a deep-sea fishing charter.
Next is Maui, which is nicknamed the ‘Valley Isle’. Here you can look at the Haleakala Crater, which is quite fascinating and makes for some fabulous pictures. The Lao valley is full of wonderful trees, and is just a very beautiful place to experience.
On Lanai, which has earned the nickname of ‘Pineapple Isle’, you need to check out the Garden of the Gods. Lanai is a smaller stop for tourists with only two resorts, but there is fine golf there and much more site seeing.
Molokai, which is the ‘Friendly Isle’, offers visitors to experience what an older Hawaii used to be like. Laid-back, no stop lights, friendly natives (which gives the island it’s nickname) and traditional ways of living is what you’ll find here.
Oahu, or ‘The Gathering Place’, has famous Waikiki Beach, big surf on the North Shore, the Polynesian Cultural Center, great shopping, night-life and dining. Oahu is home to many beaches for you to enjoy including Hanauma Bay, Kailua Beach, and Ala Moana Beach.
Finally we’ll look at Kauai, also known as ‘Garden Isle’ due to the abundance of natural beauty found here. The Na Pali coast features thousand-foot cliffs dropping straight down into the ocean and dozens of magnificent waterfalls. Unfortunately you can’t drive or hike into this area, but you can see this natural wonder by helicopter or from the sea by charter boat. Kauai is also well-known for having some of the best beaches in the world, including Poipu Beach and Hanalei Bay.
Which of the Hawaiian islands appeals to you most? It is almost impossible to choose, which is why many fail to take the advice to stick to one island. However, if your vacation is only for a week or two then enjoy one island to the full, and try another next time. Above all get the best deal you can for your money from the many Hawaii travel packages offered.
