Hawaii is one of America’s most unique states and comprises a plethora of beaches, towering palm trees and a relaxing atmosphere that greets every discerning traveller… along with a hula skirt and lei, of course. A luxury holiday is ensured thanks to the extravagant five-star resorts, amazing exploration opportunities and fantastic culture that you’ll want to immerse yourself in as soon as you step off the plane.
Formed from underwater erupting volcanoes, Hawaii comprises eight islands. Honolulu in Oahu is the state capital so expect hustle and bustle from the get-go. Animal lovers will be in their element here with a zoo and aquarium on offer which chimpanzees, elephants and camels call home. Landmarks such as the Pearl Harbour wreckage and the volcanic monument of Diamond Head can also be found in Oahu and are must-sees for first-time visitors.
The volcanic theme continues on the island of Maui being home to two volcanoes. An abundance of vast backdrops and sights such as the Molokini Crater are found here, making it popular with hikers and nature enthusiasts. Prefer something more adrenaline fuelled? The northwest coast is one of the top snorkelling and scuba diving destinations and has more than 200 species of fish to discover.
Amazing beaches and mountain ranges litter the landscape of Kauai. Known as The Garden Island, make sure to head to Waimea Canyon heralded as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, or the powder-white sands of Hanalei Bay. Film buffs, take note. Kauai was the location for Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
The island of Hawaii, more commonly known as Big Island, is the largest of the eight and is home to fantastic national parks including Waipi’o Valley, as well as manta ray snorkelling. Traditional restaurants and eateries are in abundance here with Merriman’s and Brown’s Beach House being top picks for amazing seafood with a tropical twist.
