6 TIPS for your
Off the beaten track
Hawai‘i is actually comprised of six very different islands. In beautiful Molokai you can explore the world’s tallest sea cliffs on a hot-hooved mule, while Hawai‘i Island boasts some of the most unique volcanic experiences in the world. For something really cool, head to the end of Highway 130 in the Puna District (on the coast at Kalapana) and hike to an area where lava from Kilauea Volcano flows into the sea. The viewing area is open daily from 3-9pm, but be aware that volcanic activity can change at any time. Experience the famed Hana Highway, a 104 kilometre route along Maui’s stunning coastline or try paddle boarding in Kaua‘i. Alternatively, stay on O‘ahu and venture one hour out of Waikiki to the North Shore. You’ll be greeted by a shoreline of fine-looking waves (and even finer looking surfers).
You’ll see the best of Hawai‘i if you venture off the well-trodden path. A rental car is an absolute must. Maui’s Hana Highway boasts waterfalls and ocean views, as well as roadside shacks and the peaceful town of Hana; a sleepy nugget of unspoilt Hawai‘i, with nostalgic stores and locals with beautiful smiles. Many people have described Maui as ‘traditional Hawai‘i’ due to its misty mountains and historic towns, such as Paia, and Makawao which is also home to the Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy). In Kaua‘i, ditch the wheels and commandeer a kayak. Set off along the Wailua River and discover Napali Coast, or discover Waimea Canyon on Kaua‘i’s west side. Named “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, it’s enormous, rugged and more than 1098 metres deep; providing unprecedented views of Kaua‘i’s dramatic interior.
Hawai‘i is a playground for active travellers and with warm, clear waters, it’s perfect for ocean lovers. Activities include snorkelling, diving, game-fishing and whale watching (between November and April). Over on O‘ahu’s North Shore, Waimea Bay is popular for its Waimea Bay Rock, a nine metre monster that daredevils choose to jump from. The North Shore is also a mecca for die-hard surf enthusiasts. In winter the waves are enormous and play host to the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, whereas in summer the waves are gentler and friendlier for everyone. For something a little more sedate, Sharks Cove, with its shallow tide pools is a fun-for-all family option. And on Maui, the island’s rugged terrain attracts all those who love volcano hikes, fresh water caves and rainforest walks.
Discover the best beaches
Snorkelling and diving
You’d be hard pushed to find a bad patch of sand in Hawai‘i. Many of the beaches are ranked in ‘Top Beaches’ categories, including the famous ‘Dr Beach’ list which named O‘ahu’s Haunama Bay as the best beach for 2016. Also on O‘ahu, is the platinum white Makapu’u Beach. Nestled in a cove-like bay and defined by its cascading drifts of sand. It’s an easy day jaunt from Waikiki, with a lighthouse to explore and convenient restroom facilities beside the beach. Kauna‘oa Bay on Hawai‘i Island boasts bluer-than-blue waters and is also known as Mauna Kea Beach for its nearby hotel of the same name. This spot is ideal for snorkellers, sunbathers and sandcastle makers alike. One of our favourite Hawaiian beaches resides on Maui. Offering a whopping five kilometres of white sand, Ka‘anapali Beach provides bountiful snorkelling opportunities, plentiful resorts and nearby golf courses.
Take yourself to Hawai‘i Island for a manta ray dive. The mantas frequent the Kona Coast, notably the bay fronting Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa, and come nightfall boat tours, certified divers and snorkellers are all permitted to venture amongst them. Hawai‘i’s snorkelling is awesome and is always best in the morning, before the trade winds pick up. Maui’s a great place to take the plunge because it’s replete with bright coral, tropical fish and if you venture to Turtle Town, multiple sea turtles. Some of the top spots are the northern section of Ka‘anapali Beach near Black Rock, or the small island of Molokini, which is just southwest of Maui. Join a Molokini Snorkel Cruise for a fussfree guide through coral and marine life. From November - April, you might also get to see whales.
Discover authentic Hawaiian flavours loved by the residents. O‘ahu’s famed North Shore food trucks are always swarmed by locals and that’s because they’ve been a Hawaiian institution for decades. Look for Giovanni’s, one of the original (and best) food trucks in Hawai‘i. If you like raw fish, you’ll love Poké. Relatively similar to ceviche, it’s thick cubes of raw tuna marinated with soy and sesame… Ask for added avocado to make it extra delicious. When staying in Waikiki, The Shore Bird Restaurant allows guests to cook their own dinner at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach, while Leonard’s Bakery has been selling malasada since 1952. A malasada is a hole-less donut stuffed with custard (or chocolate) and dusted in sugar and cinnamon. It’s a crime to leave Hawai‘i without trying one.
As your plane begins its descent, you lean forward in your seat, hoping to catch a glimpse of the emerald and iconic volcanic peak known as Diamond Head, rearing out of the ocean and fringed with white sand. The moment you step off the plane you know you’ve arrived in the right place – the air is warm and has that languid feel that you only find in the tropics. Then, as if to reassure you further, you’re greeted, not by the usual nod from a customs official, but with a brilliant smile and a welcoming ‘aloha’. It’s a greeting you’ll hear a hundred times a day in Hawai‘i, and one which you’ll find yourself slipping into your own language as you melt into the rhythm of the islands. Hello, goodbye, peace, love and happiness – all sentiments that suit the Hawaiian lifestyle perfectly. With its Polynesian heritage, it’s easy to imagine that New Zealand would be like this if it had the good fortune to be dragged a few hundred miles closer to the equator. It’s the sort of destination that makes you want to try new things. Fancy learning to surf? You’ll find a beginner-sized wave somewhere on any given day, and there’s no shortage of patient instructors to get you up and riding. Or learn a new artform or custom from the Islands of Aloha. The friendly Hawaiian locals will be only too happy to share their stories and the strong spiritual connection between Hawai‘i and New Zealand. One thing is certain – on your last night, as you watch the sun sink into the Pacific, you’ll wish you could dally a little longer.
O‘ahu An old-fashioned trolley bus rumbles along streets fringed with palm trees. Beyond lies a white sandy beach where tourists relax. The surf is small but perfectly formed – just right for a morning surfing lesson. When you’re done, saunter barefoot to a breakfast of fresh pineapple, strong Kona coffee and a pastry, in anticipation of some serious shopping. Such are the highlights of Waikiki, but don’t be trapped by its charms – O‘ahu has so much more to offer beyond Honolulu. Hire a car and circle the island. On the east coast you’ll find soaring cliffs, talcum-powder beaches and a quieter way of life, the perfect foil to the fun and frivolity of Waikiki. The worldfamous surf beaches of the North Shore are another highlight, and even if you’re not a surfer, Sunset Beach may be the world’s best spot to watch the sun go down.
Our favourite things to see and do Waikiki Beach Walk® – Make sure you check out the art galleries and shops at the Waikiki Beach Walk®. Home to the famous Yard House where you can taste over 110 different types of beer.
Waikiki Trolley – A fun way to see the sites. The red line is for the history buffs – explore 13 stops in historic Honolulu, take the green line for a scenic tour along the east coast of O‘ahu past Diamond Head and the pink line is for all the shopaholics. Ala Moana Shopping Centre – The world’s largest openair shopping centre with over 320 shops. Here you’ll find Macy’s, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Old Navy, GAP – the list goes on.
Pearl Harbour – This is a must, a very moving tribute to those who lost their lives here on December 7th, 1941.
North Shore – Head to the North Shore and check out all the surfing action at famous beaches such as Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach. Stop at the Aloha General Store – the birth place of Shave Ice and feast on fresh shrimp from one of the many shrimp trucks on the side of the road. Dining – There are so many amazing places to eat and drink in Waikiki. A few of our favourites are Roy’s, Bill’s Hawai‘i, The Pig & Lady and the always lively Duke’s. International Marketplace – Head to the re-designed International Marketplace with over 60 brand new stores and restaurants in the heart of Waikiki. The Grand Lanai offers seven signature restaurants unique to Waikiki.

Enjoy scenic drives past Maui’s flower and sugar cane farms in Wailuku and hear the history of the picturesque Ka’ahumanu Church built in 1876.
Take the journey of a lifetime over the long and winding road to Hana. Sit back and let your guide do the driving through over 600 hairpin turns and 54 narrow bridges. Along the way see the crashing waves at Keanae Valley Lookout and just enjoy the stunning, lush landscape passing you by.
Best of Maui Farm Tour You’ll take in some lovely scenery as well as some delicious treats. Visit the last working sugar plantation in Hawai‘i, then the Maui Gold Pineapple Company before reaching Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm. Here you can enjoy lavender tea, coffee and scones before your scenic drive to a ranch store for lunch and wine tasting. Travel back down the mountain and choose between Surfing Goat Dairy or Ocean Vodka Distillery.
Kaua‘i They call Kaua‘i the ‘Garden Isle’, but it’s like no garden you’ve ever seen before. Its mountaintops trap the rainclouds that roll in off the Pacific, so its peaks and valleys are draped with lush vegetation. Geologically it’s the oldest of the four main islands of Hawai‘i, so it’s had plenty of time to develop some spectacular scenery. Mark Twain described Waimea Canyon as the ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific’, while another highlight is the Napali Coast, where sheer cliffs rise thousands of feet straight out of the ocean. This coast is only accessible by hiking, boat or helicopter, but it’s well worth the effort. Of course, you don’t have to travel so extravagantly to appreciate Kaua‘i’s wonders – hire a bicycle from Kapa’a and cruise the cycle path that follows the coast for several kilometres. You’ll find your own patch of paradise.
Our favourite things to see and do Kilauea Lighthouse – Built in 1913 as a beacon for travelling ships, its light was turned off in the 1970s. The view of the rugged northern coastline and the deep-blue Pacific makes this the perfect spot for photos. Spouting Horn Blowhole – Located on Kaua‘i’s South Shore, it is quite spectacular and one of the most photographed spots. The Poipu surf channels into a natural lava tube here and releases a huge spout of water during large swells. Waimea Canyon – Stretching 22 kilometres long, 1.6 kilometres wide and more than 1100 metres deep, the Waimea Canyon Lookout provides panoramic views. There are numerous trails to traverse for beginners and seasoned hikers.
Po’ipu Beach Park
Napali Coast – The only land access to this enchanted area is via the Kalalau Trail, an 18 kilometre trail that starts at Kee Beach, crosses five different valleys and ends at secluded Kalalau Beach. If you don’t feel like walking, take a cruise for some unforgettable scenery. Fern Grotto – On Kaua‘i’s east side, accessible only by a short boat trip up the Wailua River, the grotto is natural lava-rock, lush with hanging ferns and tropical foliage, cooled by the mists of a waterfall. There was a time when the grotto was off-limits to all but Hawaiian royalty, but for more than 50 years, riverboats have provided tours of the site. Dining – With everything from fine dining to food trucks, you’ll find something on Kaua‘i to suit your palate. Tahiti Nui in Hanalei and Keoki’s Paradise in Poipu are two not to be missed. Both offer fresh seafood and live entertainment just about every night.

Hawai‘i Island Volcanoes National Park on the island of Hawai‘i (known as the Big Island), is one of the few places where you can actually see new land being created as molten lava plunges into the sea. The sudden meeting of hot rock and cool water creates a vast steam cloud that can be seen from miles away, but to see it after dark is even more impressive, glowing red against the black lava field and night sky. Volcanoes aren’t the only reason to visit the island of Hawai‘i however. On the west coast is Kona, a cute little waterfront town that today is famous for its coffee and World Ironman championship. Great men have walked this land – this was the last royal residence of King Kamehameha the Great, while nearby Kealakekua Bay is where Captain Cook first set foot on the island and where he was later killed.
Our favourite things to see and do Volcanoes National Park – Dramatic, diverse, vast and still growing! To best appreciate the volcanoes, plan to spend at least a day exploring the park.

Touring by Rental Car Driving in Hawai‘i Exploring Hawai‘i by car is easy. Driving on the right hand side of the road may be different, however the roads are excellent, well signposted and spacious. Just remember the centre line should be by the driver!
Choosing your Rental Car Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base, then a smaller vehicle may be adequate and easier for parking. If doing longer travel, remember you will have luggage to transport around as well as the shopping, so a midsize to larger vehicle should be considered. We suggest you book before leaving home, as this will save you money and ensure that you get the vehicle of your choice.
