Hawaii may be composed of islands but it is not small.
Your time away is so precious. There is just one thing that you must do: Relax! There is so much to see, and even better experience that you just might miss the magic if you try to “do” too much.
Whatever your plans, It’s still a vacation.
Whether you decide to bask in all the luxury that Hawaii has to offer or adventure every day and live up the nightlife still remember to relax. It is your vacation after all. When you first arrive there is the possibility of jet-lag. Take it easy on your first day. Hit up the beach or the swimming pool (or both) to get some sunshine. Exposure to bright, natural light helps to regulate your internal clock so you will adjust to the time change quicker.
Water does a body good.
Remember to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. The sun can be hot and drying. It is important to keep drinking water while you are lounging on the beach or out to activities.
#1 Tourist Move to avoid.
Wear sunscreen and sun protection when you are outside. The Hawaiian sun can be hot and damaging if precautions are not taken. There is no worse beach tourist mistake or anything that will ruin your trip faster than a searing sunburn day one. Most upscale beachfront hotels have chairs, umbrellas, and cabanas both on the beach and near the pool for rent.
Stay in one place, if you have limited time.
If you trip is a week or less it is well advised that you pick one island to explore and not try island hopping in a short period of time. If you only have a few days to spare then we might suggest staying in one local and really digging into the Hawiian experience instead of trying to do and see too much.
Pick a daily activity.
Pick one primary daily activity. The timing and location of this key activity will help you determine what other supplemental activities you add to your agenda. This is even more essential traveling with a group or children. Planning in this way will help you to get the most out of your day by preventing you from trekking back and forth across the island to different activities. For example, if you want to take a heli-tour off Maui to the nearby island of Molokai, plan your afternoon shopping and dinner in , near the airport.
Hawaii is different. Slow down, Bro. Aloha can mean ‘hello’, ‘welcome’, ‘love’, ‘best wishes’ or even ‘goodbye’. Say Aloha and feel it.
Even the perfect plans are subject to change. Be flexible and you will have a better time over all.
