Holiday In Hawaii
Things to Do in Hawaii
With eight main islands and islets for days—and coast-to-coast activities—our Hawaii holiday deals come in handy. Scoping out Hawaii care hire options is a good idea, too. Plan your itinerary and let lastminute.com.au go crazy. If you’ve never charged a wave—aka surfed like a boss—Hawaii is the place to start. With breaks for all skill levels, all you need is a board and a beach. Strengthen your sea legs on the milder waves of Hanalei Beach in Kauai. For advanced currents and a little turtle watching, float over to Laniakea on Oahu’s North Shore. Skip the surf altogether and take a hike out to the gorgeous Haleakala Crater in the Haleakala National Park. After exploring the local terrain, get to know the cultural landscape with a visit to the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument in Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii’s capital and only major metropolis.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Stick to the North Shore like spray tan on a tourist for the best outdoor shopping districts, starting with the vintage vibes of Haleiwa, a village brimming with galleries and boutiques. On the Big Island, Kailua-Kona is the one-stop shop for department stores and Farmers Market finds, including world-famous coffee beans. If you want to lux out, strut you stuff through Waikiki, home of designer flagship stores.
While you’re shopping in Waikiki, give in to the delectable smells wafting from beachfront pubs, corner barbecue stands and the in-house restaurants at five-star hotels. On whatever island you can home base, head to the coast for your pick of local favourites and fine dining with a wicked-fine view. Smoked or grilled fish is always a good bet, as is Hawaii’s signature cocktail, the mai tai—no, it’s your tai.
Not all Hawaii packages come with a traditional luau experience, but your holiday definitely should. With several luaus all over the islands, you’re sure to find good stories, more roast pig than you can eat and an excuse to sway your hips with perfect strangers. Kailua-Kona locals host several luaus, as do folks in Honolulu and Kapolei. If you’re looking for shenanigans, look no further than downtown Honolulu. Expect to see fewer grass skirts and more tan lines.
