New fruit created in Hawaii — the Papineapple!

Posted: April 1st, 2014 | Comments Off

papineapple-fools

A papineapple? What’s that? It’s a new fruit that’s a cross between a papaya and pineapple. This new fruit has emerged in the last year and it’s taking Hawaii by storm!

Pineapples and papayas are both popular tropical fruits grown in Hawaii. It only makes sense that these two favorites would combine into a delicious marriage.

What’s been the most interesting development of the papineapple is that the idea wasn’t conceived by scientists. It all happened by accident as described by Mr. Tom Rollings, Manager...

Mahalo to Nikki Clouse for sharing this trigger fish photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series. I believe Nikki’s photo is a humuhumunukunukuapua’a. This Hawaiian fish with the long name is Hawaii’s state fish.

Though the length of the name looks fairly intimidating to pronounce at first glance, it’s really quite easy. Use this link to learn how to say humuhumunukunukuapua’a. If that doesn’t work, I’ve heard many folks shorten the name to humuhumu or simply humu.

* Hawaiian Airlines raised the cost of checked luggage for interisland flights. The good news is that you can avoid that increase by becoming a HawaiianMiles member, which is a free, frequent-flier membership. The fee for the first checked bag increased from $17 to $25, but the fee for HawaiianMiles members has dropped to $15. See this link for more information and fees...

Mahalo to Damian James for supplying his gorgeous photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series. Damian took this photo on Molokai. From the looks of it, I believe he took this photo at Ali’i Park just east of Kaunakakai town. Isn’t it stunning?

As Damian shared this photo he simply said, “Molokai…you don’t know until you go!” Though only a brief statement, I think I know what Damian means. I remember my first time visiting Hawaii in Maui...

Is April a good month to vacation in Hawaii?

Posted: March 17th, 2014 | Comments Off

After taking a look at March, we’re moving on to examine whether April is a good month to visit Hawaii. Before we review the details, I want to reiterate that just about any time is a great time to visit Hawaii. I wouldn’t hesitate to hop on a plane to Hawaii any month of the year and April is no exception. We have visited Hawaii multiple times in April and always had an enjoyable time.

Kapaa Sunrise by Ashley Howard

Mahalo to Ashley Howard for sending in this lovely sunrise photo. Ashley took this photo in Kapa’a on Kaua’i in October.

We tend to find sunset photos relaxing, but Hawaii sunrise photos seem energizing — starting a new day filled with more Hawaii beauty to explore.

When Ashley shared this photo on our facebook page she said, “Wishing I was there today!” Oh, how we do, too, Ashley!

Happy Aloha Friday!

Is March a good time to visit Hawaii?

Posted: March 4th, 2014 | Comments Off

I’m kicking off a new series today with a month by month look at all the important information you need to help you choose when you should go to Hawaii. Since we just rolled into March over the weekend, we’ll start with March.

Before we jump into the details, I want to say that just about anytime is a great time to visit Hawaii. The temperatures are warm and generally sunny year-round. If I found the right flight deal, I wouldn’t hesitate to go to Hawaii in March.
