Hawaii is a popular destination for surfers and nature lovers, and for Americans who choose this marvelous place to spend Spring Break and summer vacations or to retire. Lying on the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii’s islands have always struggled to preserve their culture – first of all, hawaiian language – and today, closed off to anyone who is not a native, there are still remote isles inhabited by tribes.
HAWAII IN A NUTSHELL
The main islands of the archipelago are Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui e Hawaii Island (or Big Island).
What is the best time to visit Hawaii? Dry season starts in April and ends in October; rainy season is from November to March.
If you’d like to visit more than just one island in the same trip, you can hop on Hawaiian Airlines‘ planes or easily cruise the Pacific Ocean aboard of a Norwegian Cruise Line ship and explore Big Island, Maui, Kauai and Oahu. Getting around Hawaii is so much fun – rent a four-wheel drive and go find secluded beaches and drive through the most scenic drives you will ever experience.
Accommodation is easy to find. Whether you got long pockets or you’re on a budget, cheap hotels, luxury resorts (Hyatt, Four Seasons, Ritz…) and villas (rent one with friends) are spread anywhere on the islands.
Below, these 15 Hawaii photos will show you the wildest side of the Aloha State – canyons, divings, sweeping valleys and a few lava flows (there are 3 active volcanoes – don’t miss the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park).
