Aloha! Hawaii is looked at for being one of the most romantic holiday destinations in the world as well as a place brimming with adventure for hikers, surfers, or complete adrenaline junkies. There are many activities to full fill your time in Hawaii. Hawaii is a collection of volcanic islands: Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii's main island Kilauea.
There are many creative things to do in Hawaii depending on which island you are visiting. Hawaii's main island Kilauea is the biggest island out of them all. At Kilauea, you can bask in the Hawaiian tropical weather or you can take a guided tour of the Mauna Kea Mountain which hosts white peak tops during the winter months. Mauna Kea Mountain is an excellent sight for observing the night sky and the mountain is the base for the International Astronomy Visitor Centre where you can visit one of the observatories to gaze at the beautiful clear skies. If Manua Kea Mountain isn't your cup of tea then why not take a hike through the Waipio Valley. The Valley is a great place to take photographs as well as to relax in the calm tropical breeze. You can take a horseback ride through the valley to discover the amazing landscape and unveil some of the myths and history of such a spectacular place on a guided tour by foot or by van.
Another place to visit whilst at Kilauea is the Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site where you will be transported back in time to a preserved ancient temple. It is believed that the temple was built and dedicated to the war god Kukaillmonku. This is a magnificent place where the culture and spirit of Hawaii will touch everyone's heart and imagination. Not only is this one of the most sacred temples to visit within Hawaii but it is also an excellent place to view humpback whales during the spring and winter months.
If you fancy an adventurous holiday where you can hike through some of Hawaii's most natural scenery and almost touch the clouds then visit the Island Maui. Maui Island is home to the Haleakala National park which is host to the Haleakala Crater. You can visit the Haleakala Crater where you will be taken 7,000 feet above sea level. You can hike or walk across the park itself which covers a vast array of natural landscape. Not only will you bask in the beautiful waterfalls and tropical areas you will also learn about the history of the Haleakala National Park and be introduced to extremely scenic and individual parts of the park which you may not have discovered on your own. If the Haleakala National Park seems like a bit too much hard work, then enjoy an easier hike at the Iao Valley. The Iao Valley is an ideal place to visit for those of you who wish to take life a bit slower or those of you who are new to hiking. It is believed that the Iao Valley is a sacred ground where a battle commenced to unite Hawaii. This Valley is full of history and tales which you can explore at your own pace.
The Lanai island is probably the most romantic island where you can watch spinner dolphins splash about in Hulopoe Bay. Not only may you spot dolphins at the wonderfully protected bay but you can also enjoy snorkeling, swimming, body boarding but also having BBQ's and family picnics. Although a great spot in the summer it is advised to be careful during the winter months due to very extreme conditions. If Hulopoe Bay is just a tad too quite for you then you can pick up the pace with a 4 wheel drive through the Keahaikawelo (Garden of God's) and drive through rock-strewn landscape.
At Molokai, you can travel across the Kalaupapa National historic Park by Mule and enjoy a guided tour where you will learn about Molokai history. Molokai is a scenic, reserved Island and if its sea, sun, and surf you are looking for then the best island for you to visit would be Oahu. Oahu is a great island for nightlife and hosts an array of art galleries. Oahu is the best island to learn how to surf. Take lessons at Waikiki Beach and if you wish to immerse yourself in the surfing culture then take a trip to the North Shore where many of the pro surfers take their boards to clash with the high tides. Not only can you surf at Oahu but you can also visit the USS Arizona Memorial and pay your respects at Pearl Harbour. As well as Oahu, the island Kauai is also known for its fast-paced lifestyle. For example, take a helicopter ride along the Napali Coast at 3000 feet or visit the Wailua River where you can enjoy Kayaking or a boat tour.
As well as the main creative things to do in Hawaii there are also the smaller activities available such as learning how to Hula dance, play golf, join in with a Luau festival, learn how to play the Ukulele or learn some of the basic phrases from the local people. Whatever you chose to do there are many great creative activities to try in Hawaii.
