Thanksgiving Day

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 surly 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 sunbathe. 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 world-famous 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 – Jump on the Waikiki Trolley, it’s 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 open-air shopping centre with over 320 shops. Here you’ll find Macy’s, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Old Navy, GAP – the list goes on. 15

O’AHU

PEARL HARBOUR – This is a must for everyone who visits Hawai‘i. 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 some amazing places to eat, drink and be merry in Waikiki. A few of our favourites are the Asian Fusion offerings at Morimoto’s and Roy’s, the Cheesecake Factory (bring an empty stomach!) and the ever lively Duke’s (don’t forget to leave room for the Hula Pie).

19

HANAUMA BAY – Head to the marine conservation area of Hanauma Bay for some incredible snorkelling. It can get busy so make sure to head there early in the morning.

Maui On the west coast of Maui, there’s a pretty little town named Lahaina where you can while away the hours drinking cocktails and gazing out across the sea to the neighbouring islands of Lana’i and Moloka’i. Art galleries and restaurants now line the quaint main street where once whaling ship crews roamed. At the other end of the island is Hana, a small town whose main attraction is the journey itself with 84 kilometres of coastal road that incorporates 600 bends and 54 one lane bridges. Between the two is massive Haleakala, a volcano that forms more than 75% of the island, with spectacular sunrises and views. And dotted all around the island are the most beautiful beaches and bays, there are resort laden beaches, long white sand beaches, secluded rocky coves, beaches fronted by parks and picnic areas – you’re spoilt for choice.

Our favourite things to see and do MAKAWAO – A thriving arts community and well worth a visit into up-country Maui. Take in a weekend rodeo event, and if you’re there over the 4th of July enjoy the Makawao Rodeo, one of Hawaii’s largest paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) competitions. IAO VALLEY STATE PARK – A peaceful, lush area centring around Iao Needle, a towering black rock pinnacle soaring over 365 metres high. It’s best to go in the early morning and there are lots of great hikes from which to admire the area’s rich foliage, natural pools and scenic mountain views. LAHAINA HISTORIC TRAIL – Pick up a walking guide from the Lahaina Visitor Centre and explore Lahaina’s rich whaling and plantation history, as well as the historic court house, jail and banyan tree on a self guided tour throughout Lahaina Town. GOLF – There are many golf courses which will satisfy even the most demanding golfer. Courses are flanked by crashing waves and soaring hillsides with panoramic vistas and tropical landscapes.

ROAD TO HANA – With over 600 hairpin turns and 54 narrow bridges, the famous road to Hana is much less a thoroughfare as it is a life lesson. Slow down and enjoy the ride, there’s a surprise around every corner. HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK – Rising more than 3000 metres from the sea, Haleakala is a dormant volcano and is one of Maui’s most memorable attractions. A sight not to be missed is watching the sunrise over the unusual lava forms. Don’t forget to rug up as it can be quite cool at the top of the mountain. On a clear morning you may even see the neighbouring islands of Hawai‘i, Lana’i, Moloka’i, O‘ahu and Kaho’olawe.

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 Na Pali 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 – Visit this 15 metre high 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. It’s also the location of the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary for seabirds. 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.

FERN GROTTO – Visit the 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.

NA PALI 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 sunset dinner cruise for some unforgettable scenery.

Hawai‘i Island At 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. PUNALU’U BEACH – Visit the Black Sand formed from hardened lava that has been crumbled into tiny particles. This is a popular spot for beachgoers and is also a habitat for honu (turtles). ‘AKAKA FALLS STATE PARK – After a short hike you’ll first see the 30 metre Kahuna Falls, then continuing on the loop track witness the towering ‘Akaka Falls plunging 135 metres from the cliffs above. DEEP SEA FISHING – A great place to hook big mahimahi, ono, ahi and Pacific blue marlin is off the Kona Coast.

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 sign-posted 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.

Emergency Roadside Assistance

Things to think about:

While each vehicle is serviced and cared for individually there may be an instance that you need some assistance. You can rest assured that in Hawai‘i, Hertz provides Emergency Roadside Assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Driving licence requirements

Minimum age restrictions and driving restrictions

Additional driver conditions

Deposits

One way rental fees

Optional equipment eg. child seats, roof racks
