If You Want To Be a True Hawaii Travel Expert – You Must Do These Things in Hawaii
Think you know a lot about the Aloha State? If you think you know everything there is to know about Hawaii, you should do these 11 things.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is worth a visit.
Natural Feature, Park
At the spectacular volcano park on the Big Island, you can walk along the floor of Halema’uma’u Crater, look into the Thurston Lava Tube, and look at steam vents, sulfur slopes, and lava that shoots into the air. At the Klauea Visitor Center, you can learn all about volcanoes and the Hawaiian stories about these dangerous giants.
Summit Mauna Kea
Mauna Kea is the best place in the world to look at the stars because it is the tallest mountain below sea level. Astronomers from all over the world come to this place, which has some of the clearest air in the world, to study the universe. In the afternoon, drive your 4WD car up the zigzag road to the top and look at the bright stars.
Explore Kauai’s Nā Pali Coast
The best way to see the green cliffs of N Pali is by boat or helicopter. The beautiful landscape hasn’t changed much since Hawaiian settlers lived in its valleys.
Drive to Hana
The Road to Hana is the one road trip in Hawaii that you can’t miss. By going around the windward side of Maui, you can get a taste of old Hawaii, away from the west coast, which is full of resorts and shopping centers. With its beautiful waterfalls, sparkling ocean, and lush forests, Hana is a great place to spend the night at an ecolodge or guesthouse.
Visit a farmer’s market
Hawaii has so many great farmer’s markets because it has a lot of tropical fruits and vegetables that grow there. At the farmer’s market, you can find the freshest pineapples, birds-of-prey flowers, lychee, mangoes, starfruit, papaya, passion fruit, and bananas, no matter if they are at a roadside stand, next to a gas station, or set up in stalls in town.
See the sunrise over Haleakala
Natural Feature, Park
You will always remember the hike up Maui’s Mt. Haleakala to see the sunrise. The landscape around the dormant volcano is full of cinder cones, soft colors, and dry pebbles, so sometimes it feels like you’re walking on the moon.
Learn how to surf.
Waikiki is known for surfing, and there are many stands where you can rent a surfboard and learn how to handle yourself in the waves. Most surf schools promise that you will get at least one standing ride during your lesson. With the small waves at this beach, it’s a great place to get your sea legs.
Visit a Kona coffee farm for a tour
Visit a nearby coffee farm to find out how these famous beans are grown, picked, and roasted. Try a cup of coffee that can only be found on the islands and learn why Kona coffee is so popular all over the world. In November, the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is held on the Big Island for 10 days. There are cupping contests and tastings.
Feast at a luau
Luaus are traditional parties with food and entertainment that are often held in hotels and cultural centers all over the islands. This “dinner with a show” from the past usually includes singing, dancing, and sometimes even breathing fire. Poi, kalua pig, chicken long rice, laulau, lomilomi salmon, haupia, and poké are all typical Hawaiian dishes.
Get a lomilomi massage
The massage style that is unique to Hawaii is called lomilomi. It has been around for a long time and, with or without essential oils and lotions, tends to be more stimulating than a Swedish massage. You can easily make a reservation for one at any hotel or licensed massage practice.
Hawaii is a great place to snorkel because it has white sand beaches, tidepools full of fish, and reefs that are just a stone’s throw from the shore. Look out for turtles, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and schools of colorful fish, depending on where you go.
