Beauty, adventure and fascinating culture; all these things can be discovered throughout Hawai’i’s diverse islands. With six main islands and over 400 beaches, there is a place here for every person, mood and experience. The best part? There are no private beaches anywhere, so if you can reach it, it’s yours to enjoy. Waikiki is the most famous and popular beach throughout the islands and said to be the birthplace of surfing. Ho’okipa on Maui is renowned for its windsurfing conditions and has plenty of sand to watch from if you’re a little less adventurous. O’ahu’s North Shore is a surfer’s haven, and the spot for some of the world’s best surfing competitions. The sands of Punalu’u Beach on the Big Island are famous for their jet-black colour and being one of the few areas where the endangered green sea turtles choose to lay their eggs. On Kaua’i Island, Poipu Beach is great for families with its tranquil waters and shallow shores. Visit one of these favourites, or talk with the locals to be pointed in the right direction of another gorgeous sandy oasis.
Unlike any part of the United States, Hawai’i will leave you intrigued. While each island offers something different, all will reward you with a unique experience and beautiful backdrop for whatever journey you choose.
