Mahalo to Bernadette Kozak for sharing her lovely photo with us for Aloha Friday. Bernadette took this sunset photo from Oahu’s North Shore. It appears that the afternoon had been overcast, but the clouds seem to have given way to the bursting sun. What a lovely ending to the day!

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.

Best things to see, do and try on Molokai

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.

Mahalo to Scott Pudwell for sharing this beautiful photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series. Scott took this sunset shot in November from Waikoloa — one of our favorite places to stay on Hawaii, the Big Island.

I love how the sun beams are stretching across the water. I can almost feel their warmth. Can you?

Happy Aloha...

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...
