Paradise on Earth, Honolulu, Hawaii
Reviews > North America > United States > Honolulu > Paradise on Earth
Hawaii is a place that makes it hard on one to decide what to do first, surfing, hiking, cliff diving, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, mountain climbing, ravishing beautiful tropical flowers and plants, attending a luau, shopping, eating, drinking, dancing and just kicking back.
Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian islands where you will find the city of Honolulu, tourist filled Waikiki strip and the sleepy beach town of Hale'iwa dotted with famed surfing spots Sunset Beach and Waimea Beach.
Hawaii WaterfallsKauai, also known as the Garden Isle is home to Mount Wai'ale'ale, the wettest spot on earth. Koke&'e mountains surrounds you with lush swamps and rare birds, dense rainforests of Ha'ena awaits you, while the sunny beaches and clear skies in Po'ipu calls on you to feel the sand between your toes.
Maui is knows as the Valley Isle and the valleys on this island where created by the dormant volcano, Haleakala. Maui's major resort area is Lahaina a historic whaling town, but don't forget about Hana to experience a black sand beach.
Big Island is the place to see erupting volcanoes, with two of the five volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, still active. The volcanoes are lined along the west side, Kona, resulting in the dry landscape, while the east side lies the town of Hilo is wet and lush.
Hanoma Bay, Hawaii Lanai and Molokai, two smaller islands that should not be neglected. Lanai is better know for offering two five-star resorts - the Manele Bay Hotel and the Lodge at Ko'ele. Molokai you can bask on Hawaii's longest white sand.

The city with its surrounding areas can be easily visited thanks to the wonderful public transportation system. Downtown is also an easy place to get around as it is surprisingly small. It’s not so close to the shore, built around a spacious plaza on King Street and among its most important attractions are the Iolani Palace, built in 1882 and the state capitol. If you go towards the shore you won’t find a nice beach to walk along for too long as lately there has been a lot of constructions going on. The Aloha Tower is one of the buildings you can visit there. It is a good place to have a bird’s eye view of the city and... Read more »
