If you want to vacation in one of the world's most beautiful locales, book a Hawaii beach rental and head to the Aloha State. Whether you're craving the hustle and bustle of the Big Island or the remote quietude of Lanaʻi, you'll return home with one-of-a-kind memories (and hopefully a few souvenirs).
You could stay in Hawaii for 10 years and never experience all the wonderful attractions it has to offer. Since you're only visiting for a short time, plan your visit around the beaches. Not only will you enjoy the crisp sand and cool water, but most Hawaiian beaches are also lined with restaurants, shops, and other attractions with which to fill your time. Waikiki Beach in Honolulu is undoubtedly the most famous and popular beach in Hawaii. It's also the most crowded, which means you might struggle to find a stretch of sand to yourself during the tourist season, but you'll meet other visitors as well as a fair number of locals, so it's perfect if you're a social butterfly. If you're more interested in surfing and other sports, hit Ho'okipa Beach in Maui, and if you're looking for the best views and the most seclusion, head to Lanikai beach in Oahu.
Some of the best annual events in Hawaii are also centered around the beaches, so get up early in your Hawaii beach rental and hit some of the best options. For instance, surfing aficionados won't want to miss the Van's Pipeline Masters, which is part of the Triple Crown of Surfing. It takes place along the North Shore on Oahu every December because the water becomes perfect for surfing this time of year. The Ka Molokai Makahiki Festival occurs every January and celebrates Hawaii's history and culture. You can listen to fascinating lectures, take workshops, eat delicious food, and participate in sports. The Amazing Aloha Festivals also offer a great time. More than 300 scheduled events and attractions draw people from all over the world during this event.
If you're interested in retail therapy, Honolulu is the perfect place to visit. There are numerous malls, swap meets, and other retail destinations in this city. Aloha Stadium, for instance, hosts a swap meet three days a week. Bargain hunters will always walk away with an inexpensive but exciting treasure. It's a great place to pick up a souvenir if you're not attracted to the typical options available in local gift stores.
Food is a way of life in Hawaii, whether you're searching for restaurants in small towns or big cities. The Original Roy's in Hawaii Kai, for instance, is a Hawaiian institution. It's a little on the pricey side, but you'll experience the best Hawaiian fusion cuisine in the state. Pa'akai is another fantastic option if you want to dine right on the water's edge. Try the steak or the pasta if you're interested in flavorful cuisine.
Hawaii is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, and for good reason. You can visit any time of year and enjoy endless sunshine and warmth, so book your Hawaii beach rental and start packing your bags today.
