Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii is one of the most cherished destinations around the world. In addition to experiencing the golden sand beaches and the tasty cocktails, the Kohala Coast also offers many other experiences for the luxury traveler. Taking a day to swim with the 16-foot Kona Manta Rays is surely an unforgettable experience. The Original Hawaiian Chocolate Tour is for the lovers of boutique artisan chocolates who will not only get to sample several different chocolates, but will get to learn each step of the chocolate-making process. Lastly, the traveler cannot experience the Big Island without visiting the most active and longest-erupting volcano on the planet, Kilauea, at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Maui, The Valley Isle
Another prime destination for luxury travelers in Hawaii, and my personal favorite is Maui. Conde Nast Traveler voted Maui the “Best Island” for 19 years. In order to experience the true beauty of Maui, visitors can take one of several helicopter tours, which offer breathtaking views of the island’s twin volcanoes, the lush green valley, and the gorgeous natural scenery from the air.
Another way to view this beautiful island is to take the almost two-mile zip line within the West Maui Mountains. This is the only parallel-line system in Hawaii, so you can ride side-by-side with a friend. My all-time favorite experience, the breathtaking sunrise above the clouds at Haleakala (the 10,023 foot dormant volcano)! Some that are braver than me choose to bike down from the summit for a little adrenaline rush. Another beautiful and exciting experience is “The Road to Hana”, it winds through flourishing rainforests, remote countryside, hidden tropical waterfalls, and plunging pools. If your schedule allows, visit Maui between December and March and board a whale watching boat to see (and hear) the thousands of humpback whales that winter here.
Oahu, The Gathering Place
The gathering place where Honolulu is situated. The big waves of the North Shore lure the world's top surfers for competition from November to February. But you can surf year round on the island's consistent surf. If you haven't surfed yet, take lessons at Waikki Beach for the time of your life. If hiking is your interest, hike to the top of the Diamond Head Mountain overlooking Waikiki for a spectacular panoramic view. And absolutely don't miss out on Pearl Harbor.
Kauai - The Garden Isle
Whether you are an experienced or beginner hiker, Waimea Canyon, known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" is a must. Take a boat tour along the North Shore to see the stunning Napali Coast with its towering cliffs. Watch dolphins and sea turtles swim by and go snorkeling from the boat. Kauai has the only navigable rivers in the islands so why not go Kayaking on the beautiful Wailua River through jungle scenery?
Hawaii - The Big Island and Orchid Isle
Volcanoes National Park is a must see! See this volcanic crater of Halemaumau and walk through the Thurston Lava Tube, I'm told its an exhilarating experience. Witness the incredible sight of red hot lava flowing into the sea from Kilauea Volcano. An exceptional experience from the cruise ship, from the Kalapana viewing point or from a helicopter as you fly over this amazing natural wonder. Saddle up?? Take a horseback ride through open landscapes, go on a cattle drive or ride the historic trail to Kealakekua Bay for swimming, snorkeling and dolphin encounters!
GOLF - Hawaii is the number 2 destination in the world for golf.
An active vacation in Hawaii can banish stress and put you on the road to well-being so what are you waiting for? Put Hawaii in your plans for your next exciting active getaway to a location with staggering natural beauty and many unique opportunities.
