Molokai

If you’re interested in immersing yourself in Hawaiian tradition, Molokai is the island for you! In May, the people of this pristine land gather for the Ka Hula Piko Festival at Papohaku Beach Park, to honor the aloha spirit and the origins of the hula. Talented dancers from throughout the state join in the festivities, every movement and chant hearkening the customs of the past. Molokai also boasts untamed wilderness as well as interesting historic sites, such as 700 year old rockwall fishponds and King Kamehameha V’s famed coconut grove from the 1860’s. Modern wonders include touring a working coffee plantation or visiting Kanemitsu's Bakery in the town of Kaunakakai, where you’ll want to

indulge in their famous onion cheese bread. Small beachfront cottages offer an intimate atmosphere and a calmer view to the beauties of the Aloha State.

This bill represents equal rights for everyone in Hawaii, everyone who comes here. This is to me the essence of the aloha spirit,� stated Governor Abercrombie as he signed the recent civil union legislation. “With its signing, I want to say ‘Welcome’ to the world, come to Paradise.

“The Magic Isle� has a smaller population than many realize, which allows for convenient and elegant amenities as well as more peaceful explorations of popular attractions.

Maui

A tourist favorite, with miles of glorious beaches and the scenic Hana Highway - with 600 curves, 54 bridges, and more waterfalls along the way than you can count. Watch the humpbacks in the Auau Channel (between Maui, Lanai and Molokai) – revered as one of the best places to whale watch in the world. Spectacular sunrises await at over 9500 feet, atop Haleakala Crater. Lazily swim in the Pools of Oheo, naturally tiered and fed by shimmering waterfalls. Discover sugar plantations, flower farms, wine tasting, shopping extravaganzas and over 120 miles of beachfront.

Where couples vow to navigate life together.
