Waikapalae wet cave, Kauai

This cave is located on Kauai’s northern shore, and is often called the Blue Room Cave due to its vibrant blue water. This blue tint is brightest when the sun is shining into the cave. It was also used in Pirates of Caribbean movie, but warning, the water is super cold.

Rainbow Falls, The Big Island

111Rainbow-Falls-Hawaii

Rainbow (Waiānuenue) Falls is a waterfall located in Hilo, Hawaii. It got its name because if it is sunny in the morning, you will be able to see a rainbow from the falls. It is 80 ft (24 m) tall and almost 100 ft (30 m) wide.

Kilauea Crater (caldera), The Big Island

Kilauea is the most active volcano in Hawaii, which may be why in Hawaiian its name means “spewing.” The name obviously refers to the lava spewing out of the earth through this volcano.

Waimea Canyon State Park, Kauai

This gorgeous park is lovingly called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” This canyon is located on the Southwest side of Kauai and even though the size may not compare to the actual Grand Canyon, you will not find anything else like it in the Hawaiian Islands.

Waihee Ridge Trail, Maui

This 5 mile hike is not for a beginner, but provides exquisite views of the western mountains of Maui, the ocean, and even of Makamakaole Falls.

Travel Tip – While hiking make sure to bring a good water bottle that keeps your water cold (or hot).

Na Pali Coast State Park, Kauai

This 15 miles stretch of coastline is absolutely breathtaking. It may not be the easiest of places to access in Hawaii, but you can sail, hike, or even raft along this coastline.

Black and white rock beach in Kona, Hawaii

This beach may not be ideal for laying out but the black and white lava rocks sure do make for a great photo!

Bamboo Forest, Maui 

I knew there were Japanese influences in Hawaiian culture, but who knew you didn’t have to go all the way to Japan to see an amazing bamboo forest? It is super exciting that Maui has their own.

Kaihalulu Red Sand Beach, Maui

Most people are surprised to learn that Hawaii features some exquisitely beautiful red sand beaches. Kaihalulu Beach in Hana, Hawaii is one place where you can observe this phenomenon, but be prepared for a decent hike to uncover this gem. Also worth noting is that due to the secluded nature of this little piece of paradise, Kaihalulu is known unofficially as a clothing-optional beach.

This 500 year old lava cave is a must see spot if you are on The Big Island. There are quite a few lava tubes on the island, but Nahuku is one of the easiest and biggest to get to. These tubes are formed from flowing lava cooling and hardening.

Byodo-In Temple, Oahu

This temple was built to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii, is a replica of another from Kyoto, Japan, and is a perfect way to pay homage to Hawaii’s Japanese influence. This beautiful temple is surrounded by lush Japanese gardens and koi ponds. It is also featured in a few tv series including Hawaii Five-O, Magnum, Lost and House of the Rising Sun.

 

This is a glimpse into the beauty that here on the island! Start your journey at Kiahuna Beachside Resorts!
