Craving for a beach vacation during the pandemic? Let us take you on a virtual tour to this tropical paradise!
Want to visit the coolest place on Earth? Head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park which literally looks you are walking on the surface of the moon! The park is home to two active volcanoes, one of which is the most active volcano in the world.
During the area’s most active periods, tourists have the chance of experiencing the thrill of feeling seismic activity, hearing the boom of gas emissions, or even seeing a pillar of ash escaping into the air.
Akaka Falls is the most famous of the Big Island’s waterfalls, and for the right reasons: it’s 442 feet tall! It’s quite easily accessible, so head to this place for a majestic view.
No trip to Hawaii would be complete without spending time in Honolulu. This is by far the largest city in the island chain, the state capital and a bustling, exciting place to explore.
For amazing views in Honolulu, climb up to the summit of the Diamond Head Crater, which overlooks Waikiki. Don’t forget to visit Pearl Harbor as well!
If you want to just sit back, relax and bask in the sun, head to then head to Lanikai Beach, which is just a 30-minute drive from Downtown Honolulu. Lanikai is Hawaiian for Heavenly Sea, and I think that is the perfect way to describe this half-mile stretch of coastal beauty.
What could possibly get your heart pumping with adrenaline more than swimming and freediving with sharks? Take a boat trip out to a natural shark aggregate site for an experience of a lifetime.
Nicknamed the Garden Isle, it’s a no-brainier as to why so many people love visiting Kauai, another popular destination is this island nation. The dramatic cliffs, paired with the lush green landscape make it one of the prettiest islands in all of Hawaii. You can explore the famed Na Pali Coast here and find some of the most serene secluded beaches in the world.
Then there’s the majestic Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon located just a few miles inland of the Na Pali Coast of Kauai. The canyon itself is about 16 kms long and 3,000 feet deep and is quite a popular area of hiking in Hawaii! So, for all the trekkers out there, you know where to go!
This one is for the early birds who know how to appreciate a breathtaking sunrise. Located on Maui, Haleakala National Park offers access to the inactive Haleakala Volcano, which stands at over 10,000 feet. Views from the summit stretch across the entire island and are particularly beautiful at sunrise.
Take a road trip to the dramatic Hana Road, officially named Hana Highway, is a scenic 52-mile stretch of highway on the island of Maui.
Towards the end of the road to Hāna in Maui, there is a beautiful black sand beach called Waianapanapa. The contrast between the thick green fringe of trees, the deep black sand, and the vibrant blue ocean is unique.
On the east side of Maui, the Pools of ‘Ohe’o, or “Seven Sacred Pools,” are a series of small waterfalls and plunge pools fed by a stream running through the rainforest. Not only are the pools popular for swimming and cliff-jumping, but also the scenery is magical.
Swim with all the beautiful reef fish, turtles, and other marine life in a protected cove on the southeast coast of Oahu. Hanauma Bay is picture-postcard beautiful, with turquoise blue waters and white sand.
Saving the best for the last, do the Stairway to Heaven in Oahu. 3,922 stairs lead up the imposing mountain ridge and trust me, this is one of the most beautiful views you’ll ever witness!
