Hawaii is just one of those places that everyone would like to visit; the climate is fantastic, the people warm and the beaches pristine. I have been fortunate enough to visit this magical island twice but I still don’t think that is enough, if ever I get the chance to go again I will take it in a heartbeat.
If you live in Australia then you really have no excuse not to visit! There are regular flights from Hawaii to Australia each day and the best part is that there are some great deals to be had. So get your hands on an air ticket and start looking forward to a holiday in luxury that you won’t be able to find back home.
I spent a week on the island relaxing and soaking up the sun, there were so many things to enjoy that it’s difficult to tell you about them all you will just have to see for yourself.
I managed to select my 3 favourite things about Hawaii, it was tough to get the list down to just 3.
So here they are:Every beach is a public beach!
Every single beach in Hawaii is, by law, completely public. I love this! It means that you can stroll around the island and when you see a beach you like you are free to enjoy it for as long as you like. You can be sun bathing on a perfect white sandy beach right next to Oprah’s house and other superstars from around the globe. You are fully entitled to enjoy the same beach and therefore the same views or sunsets that the rich and famous do.
The world’s tallest mountain (no, not Everest!)
I know that everyone thinks that Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world but if you check the record books Mauna Kea is officially the tallest mountain on the planet. A whopping 20,000 feet of this mountain are below see level so you can’t see all of it. It’s a beautiful place to stroll around with the greenery giving perfect shade from the sun.
The Hula culture is absolutely fantastic and really does make this place what it is. I met some people from a Maui roofing company and they showed me around and it was really amazing. If you want to you will be able to learn about some of the local traditions and fascinating myths. I am sure you will end up getting involved in Hula dance at some point, I did! Looked like a fool, loved every second!
