11 Awesome Things to Do in Hawaii
The state of Hawaii is arguably one of the most beautiful states in the United States. It has diverse natural scenery that’s populated with forests, mountains, volcanoes, and beautiful beaches. Its warm climate makes it a great place to vacation all year round. And even if it’s winter back home, you’ll be able to tan in Hawaii. There are eight main islands in Hawaii, although there are also many other smaller islands. The big eight are “Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui and the Island of Hawaiʻi. The last is the largest island in the group; it is often called the “Big Island”. Each of these islands has a variety of entertaining, awesome activities that can please every kind of person. If you come to Hawaii, you’ll have fun.
Obviously, one of the best things you can do in Hawaii is to go fishing. And there are so many different ways you can fish in Hawaii. There are natural streams, you could fish off the shore or on a beach or pier, or you could book a charter with us and go deep sea fishing. All fishing experiences are fun (although we believe deep sea fishing is the most fun).
Of course, one of the most wonderful things about Hawaii are the beaches. They’re idyllic looking, with white sand, beautiful cerulean water, and the warm golden sun hanging overhead. You can surf, swim, lay out and tan, or build sandcastles with your kids on all the different beaches. With so many beaches options you can pick the one that best suites your mood or interests, especially if you’re interested in a certain type of sport like surfing.
Another great activity to do in the beautiful Pacific is snorkeling! There are so many beautiful creatures to see in the Hawaiian waters such as the Green Hawaiian Sea Turtle and snorkeling provides an opportunity for you to see many animals in their natural habitat. Depending on when and where you go, you may be able to see Dolphins or whales or beautiful coral reefs.
Another awesome opportunity to see some of the beautiful animals that populate Hawaii is to go on a whale watching tour. It’s a magical experience that allows you to get fairly close to North Pacific Humpback Whales as they migrate gracefully to the Hawaiian waters, breaching the surface like a dancer.
Many people come to Hawaii for the beautiful golf courses that are available. There are plenty of wonderful public and private golf courses that work with golfers at any level, whether it’s their first time golfing or if they’re professional level. The beautiful views of the mountains, ocean, and forest is an indescribable golfing experience.
Drive Along the Highways
You can find some beautiful views just driving down the highway in Hawaii. Pack up your car or rental, roll down the windows, and you’ll be ready to experience and see the most beautiful views. The Hana Highway in particular (Highway 36 and Highway 360) is an adventurous drive with a lot of one way bridges, a lot of curves, and a whole lot of fun.
There are plenty of cool stops along the highway including the Puaa Kaa State Wayside Park, the Kahanu Garden, and the Haleakala National Park.
There are more beautiful national parks than the ones mentioned above and all of them are fun to hike. Depending on what you’d like to see, there’s a view and experience for everyone, with tropical valleys, beautiful oceans to look over, dramatic mountains that make you feel like you’re in a fantasy world or at least a paradise. There are also paths where you can hike up a volcano such as the Mt. Haleaka which is a dormant volcano located on Maui, that has beautifully diverse views. In some places you can see tropical waterfalls, or a bamboo forest. On Oahu there’s the Makapu’pu Lighthouse Trail that sees over the oceans and allows you to see cool historical lighthouses. No matter what island you’re staying on, you’ll find be able to find a beautiful hiking trail.
After hiking on a dormant volcano, watching whales, deep sea fishing, and traipsing through a bamboo forest, you’ll probably need some rest and relaxation. And Hawaii has plenty of spas that can help you do just that. These spas allow you to rejuvenate and unwind so you’ll be ready to go swimming or hiking or just to help you go back to the daily grind.
