Home to the state capitol and the majority of Hawaii’s population, the island of Oahu is a vibrant mix of natural, cultural and historic wonders. In Honolulu, an array of cultures blends harmoniously, allowing each to retain its distinct flavor. The downtown sector combines Hawaii’s royal history with the modern-day action of a major metropolitan center. Waikiki Beach, with its impressive hotels and glittering atmosphere, is a famous tourist hub and resort destination of international renown. Honolulu is also the location of Diamond Head, Oahu’s famous volcanic landmark, and Pearl Harbor, the largest natural harbor in Hawaii and the only naval base in the United States to be designated a National Historical Landmark.

Location Nawiliwili Kauai, Hawaii, USA
In
Out

The Garden Isle is a relaxed reminder of old-time Hawai’i. Villages like Hanapepe invite you to get your toes in the sand at one of the island’s many beaches, or step up to a roadside truck or stand for a refreshing, neon-tinted “shave ice.” Natural splendors abound on Kauai, including sprawling Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” the dramatic fluted cliffs of the NaPali Coast or the Kilauea Point Lighthouse, standing proud on the northernmost point in the Hawai’ian Islands.

Date 14/10/2022
Location Lanai
In
Out

Lanai is the sixth largest of the Hawaiian Islands, and has a small population of about 5,000 permanent residents. Sometimes called “the pineapple island” because, for most of the 20th century, virtually the whole island was one huge pineapple farm operated by the Dole company. Since 2012, 97% of Lanai’s land is owned by Larry Ellison, co-founder of the Microsoft corporation. He has invested substantial funds into restoration and infrastructure improvement, and has stated that he intends to make the island the first economically viable, 100% green community. He also owns the two Four Seasons luxury resorts on the island. Manele Bay is divided into two parts, known and White Manele and Black Manele. White Manele, or Hulupo’e Bay, is the location of the star attraction, a wide beach of golden sand. It attracts swimmers and snorkelers and is famous for frequent visits by spinner dolphins and humpback whales. Offshore, the bay supports rich and varied marine life, and is an ideal snorkeling site. One notable feature is Puu Pehe, or Sweetheart Rock, looming 80 feet above the sea about 150 feet offshore. The “Black Manele” section is lined by tall sea cliffs called Pali Lei noHauni, offering panoramic views from their tops. Elsewhere on the island, Kaunolu Village is a National Historic Site noted for its ancient Hawaiian ruins and petroglyphs.

The island of Hawaii, called the Big Island, is the largest, youngest and most changeable of the Hawaiian Islands. It was the last in the chain to be formed and is still creating and re-creating itself. Lava flowing to the ocean in a sustained, years-long eruption of Kilauea, the world’s most continuously active volcano, has added 300 new acres of topography, while it has demolished some of the island’s most treasured landmarks, including a 200 year old black sand beach. It was on this island that the Polynesian voyagers are believed to have first set foot in Hawaii about 500-750 CE, and it was here that Kamehameha the Great was born and died, and Captain James Cook was killed.

Location Fakarava, Tuamotu, French Polynesia
In
Out

The 77 Tuamotus, (the name means “Distant Islands” in Polynesian) comprise the largest chain of coral atolls on earth. They sprawl across the vast blue South Pacific Ocean encompassing an area the size of Western Europe. Atolls are literally the skeletal remains of coral reefs, forming rings of crushed coral sand surrounding a shallow central lagoon. The natural flora and fauna of the Oceanic realm is adapted to this environment, and Fakarava’s large lagoon is designated by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The people of Fakarava farm coconuts for copra on shore and pearls in the lagoons. They also host the travelers who flock here to bask on the beaches and snorkel or dive in the luxuriant coral gardens along the shore. At the long spit of Les Sables Roses, the pink blush of the sand reveals its coral origin. The sleepy towns of Rotoava and Tetamanu offer scant attractions for visitors, except for their distinctive rock lighthouses shaped like stepped pyramids. Tetamanu does boast a 19th Century church built of coral rock by missionaries, and an adjoining cemetery with coral rock headstones. Aside from snorkeling or beach-basking, some visitors enjoy a visit to a lagoon pearl farm, to see how the large, flat bivalves are coaxed into creating the treasured gems formed by the lustrous nacre inside their shells.

Location Rangiroa
In
Out

One of the largest coral atolls on earth with a total circumference of 200 km, Rangiroa is a part of the island group called the Tuamotus. Its central lagoon is so large that is actually has its own horizon. Pearl cultivation is practiced here, yielding the prized black pearls, and surprisingly, it also supports a winemaking endeavor for the commercial market in Tahiti. The vines are planted on the small motus right alongside coconut palms.

Location Bora Bora
In
Out

Bora Bora, has long been noted for its stunning beauty. A tiny island, less than 20 miles in circumference, Bora Bora is dominated by the castle-like Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia, two volcanic peaks with lush tropical slopes. A protective coral reef encloses Bora Bora, and the lagoon is dotted with colorful motus, or islets. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to brilliant turquoise and sapphire-colored waters, and locals in the small village of Viatape sell colorful fabrics, sculptures carved from native wood and precious black pearls.

Location Papeete
In
Out

The islands of French Polynesia are acclaimed as the most beautiful in the South Pacific. Tahiti is the largest of the Polynesian islands and home to the capital city of Papeete, a delightful blend of cultures. Papeete, meaning the “water basket,” was once a gathering place where Tahitians came to fill their calabashes with fresh water. Today, it is the gateway to the country, and boasts romantic resorts, fine dining, vibrant markets, pearl shops, and boutiques. Tahiti’s mountainous interior is adorned with deep valleys and scenic waterfalls, while the rugged coastal lands are home to fields of tropical flowers, and glorious white and black sand beaches.
