Hurricane Lane in Hawaii

Posted: August 24th, 2018 | Comments Off

Normally on Fridays we post a happy Hawaii vacation photo from a reader. In light of the hurricane that’s passing near Hawaii, we felt that posting our usual Aloha Friday Photo would be insensitive to the residents of Hawaii.

Thankfully, the eye of the hurricane did not hit the islands, however the outer bands have brought dangerous winds and rain.

Posted: August 21st, 2018 | Comments Off

Waimoku Falls

Driving Maui’s delightful road to Hana (and beyond) can be an action packed day. With so much to see and do, it’s challenging to budget your time, but if you are up for a hike, the Pipiwai Trail is one that’s worth your time. (Allow between 2 to 2.5 hours to complete this 4-mile hike.)

The trail goes past banyan...

Take me there Tuesday: Waipio Valley, Hawaii (Big) Island

Posted: August 7th, 2018 | Comments Off

Waipio Valley

On Hawaii’s Hamakua Coast, Waipio Valley is sure to make you marvel. We always wonder how such a flat and verdantly green valley floor was created between the steep cliffs.
