Best things to see, do and try on Molokai

Posted: February 25th, 2014 | Comments Off


Each Hawaiian island has its own personality and attractions that make it unique. Molokai’s tagline is Hawaiian by nature. From my observation Molokai earns that reference from its untouched beauty and lack of commercialism.

There are no high-end hotels, luxury spas or signature golf courses on Molokai. Instead you’ll find miles of unspoiled coastline, valleys and mountains.

Two waterfalls visible in the verdant Halawa Valley.

Suggestions for taking two separate vacations on the same Hawaiian Island

Posted: February 18th, 2014 | Comments Off

The climate diversity in Hawaii is really amazing. Generally speaking, one side of each island is lush and jungle-like, while the opposite side is dry and almost always sunny. This pattern is described as the windward and leeward sides of the Hawaiian islands. When you visit Hawaii, we highly recommend you get out to explore both these sides. The contrast and diversity in such a small area is amazing.

In this article, we present some food for thought as you’re making Hawaii vacation plans. Beyond just sightseeing from the windward side to the...

Mahalo to ナガシマ ケンイチfor sharing this beautiful lei photo. ナガシマ ケンイチ lives in Japan and took this photo while visiting Oahu.

I love the way thatナガシマ ケンイチshaped this lei into a heart. This lei is absolutely stacked with colorful plumeria blooms. I can only imagine that the fragrance was divine.

Happy Aloha Friday and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Mahalo to Kelly Driscoll-Smith for sharing this neat photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series.

Kelly took this photo off Maui’s road to Hana at the black sand beach at  Waianapanapa State Park. As you face the ocean, on the right end of the beach, there’s a cave that’s the end of a lava tube. That’s where Kelly took this photo.

The short walk into this cave leads to this window, so to speak, from the cave out to the ocean. Take your...

Mahalo to Karen Couturier for sharing her excellent sunset photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series.

I believe Karen’s photo was taken in Ko Olina on the southwest coast of Oahu. Ko Olina sunsets are spectacular.

I really like how Karen composed this photo with the sheltering palm branch hovering just above the view. Ah, what a relaxing sight.

Happy Aloha Friday!
