As an isolated archipelago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is a traveler’s dream destination. There is something for everyone, from natural wonders to historical monuments. Hawaii’s main islands beckon every adventurer and include the following great destinations:

 

-Oahu: The famous Waikiki Beach in downtown Honolulu served as a government center for the islands in the 1450s, which is fitting considering that Honolulu is the state capital in modern-day Hawaii. In addition to enjoying the sun and surf on Waikiki, tourists can visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. This somber place commemorates America’s entry into WWII. Surf aficionados will want to travel to the North Shore, site of famous wave spots including Waimea Bay and the Banzai Pipeline.

 

-Hawaii Island: Hawaii Island is both the largest and the newest island because of ongoing volcanic activity. A visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park allows aspiring volcanologists to experience first-hand the might of Mauna Loa and Kilauea, two of the world’s most active volcanoes. Visitors looking for another type of excitement might choose, instead, to tour one of the many world-renowned coffee farms on the Kona Coast. From growing to roasting to tasting, coffee lovers can get their caffeine fix via an afternoon outing to a coffee farm.

 

-Kauai: Known as the Garden Isle, Kauai is breathtaking beautiful. Visitors can hike through Waimea Canyon State Park to view waterfalls and prehistoric plants, and they can view the magnificence of the Na Pali Coast via land, sea, or air. The Na Pali Coast is quite remote, and visiting will require planning and effort. However, it is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places on the planet, which makes the effort worthwhile.

 

-Maui: The Road to Hana is the best-known option for those wanting to wander the Valley Isle. It is a trek of around 65 miles that can be made on Maui’s eastern side. Drivers need to be cautious on the drive, as it is notorious for its hairpin turns, sharp drop-offs, and damaged bridges. The reward for making the drive is great, however: magnificent seascape vistas, abundant rainforest, waterfalls with pools to plunge into, and so much more. The journey to Hana delights and entertains thousands of visitors each year.
