The FREE Explore Hawai‘i and Family Hawai‘i guides are the ultimate tools to help you plan a holiday to this unique destination. There are beautiful beaches with turquoise bays perfect for activities such as surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and outrigger canoeing; opportunities to join in lei-making and ‘ukulele classes, and to visit ancient cultural sites. Attending a lū‘au — a traditional Hawaiian feast with cultural performances such as hula dancing — is a must for every itinerary, and many hotels and resorts offer a lū‘au on certain nights of the week. There is also an abundance of wildlife experiences, such as spotting humpback whales breaching on a boat cruise, or just viewing them from a headland. Adventure lovers can fly above volcanic landscapes on a scenic helicopter flight, go ziplining over a rainforest canopy, and hike through magnificent canyons and valleys to swim in picturesque waterfalls.
