Although Hawaii is the “youngest” of the 50 United States, this lively archipelago boasts a rich history along with modern luxury and some good clean fun in the sun. While most travellers find Hawaii accommodation on one island and explore every beach and canyon it has to offer, we say go beach-hopping, because more is more. From the monuments in Honolulu and the wilderness preserves of Kauai to the seaside volcanoes of Hawaii (aka “The Big Island”), you won’t be lacking exciting activities or opportunities to be blissfully lazy.
Don’t be fooled by the rugged cliffs and secluded lagoons. You can take your pick from numerous hotels in Hawaii’s eight main islands, ranging from simple beach bungalows to luxurious resorts. To soak in some maritime history in Oahu, book accommodation near Pearl Harbor, which is within walking distance to several museums and memorials, as well as Aloha Stadium.
Most travellers start in Honolulu—on the island of Oahu—a city with easy airport access, fascinating local and national history, and delicious eats all along the beachfront streets of Waikiki. We’re talking everything from juicy burgers to fresh seafood and mai tais galore—mai tai, your tai, everybody’s tai! A couple of islands to the east, Maui owns the bragging rights to Haleakala Crater, the rim of which sports unbeatable views of the surrounding forest. Just don’t fall in! When you can peel yourself away from Maui’s Ho’okipa Beach, remind yourself that bigger isn’t always better in Hawaii (just ask the indigenous fiery skipper butterfly). Still, the Big Island is a must-see; pack for a hike so you can visit the Akaka Falls State Park in Hilo and the Volcanoes National Park on the island’s southern coast. After that, if you’re not quite ready to trade togs for real clothes, float on over to Kauai, northwest of Oahu. This hibiscus-shaped island is dotted with accommodation in Hawaii’s secluded rainforests, where you can fall asleep to the sound of waterfalls.
While many islands have their own airport, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) is close to beautiful Hawaii hotels and welcomes heaps of intercontinental flights every day. Car hire (especially if you book it with Wotif) is a winning option if you’re not planning to visit multiple islands on one holiday. Rail service is available in Oahu and buses run through all the main islands. Otherwise, you can hail a cab and explore all the top neighbourhoods on foot. To hop from island to island, catch a ferry and enjoy the views as you float by…but first you’ve got to book those flights to Hawaii!
With very little variation in its gorgeous weather, Hawaii is a great choice year-round, but the busiest time is June through to August. If you like, skip the tourist crowds but not the festivals, which fill the island state’s calendar from the Honolulu Festival in March to Kauai’s Festival of Lights in December.
Ready for a Hawaii holiday, but not sure how you can do it all? When you’re wondering how, think Wotif. We’ve found sweet deals on airfares and accommodation, so you can mix, match and bundle the perfect tropical trip.
