There's no place on earth quite like this handful of sun-drenched, mid-Pacific islands. The Hawaii of South Seas literature and Hollywood films really does exist.
The entire island chain is made of volcanoes; don't miss the opportunity to see one. On Oahu the entire family can hike to the top of the ancient volcano, world-famous Diamond Head. At the other end of the spectrum is fire-breathing Kilauea at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, on the Big Island, where you can get an up-close-and-personal experience with the red-hot lava ooze. On Maui, Haleakala National Park provides a bird's-eye view into a long-dormant volcanic crater.
Rushing waterfalls also dot the Hawaiian landscape, thundering downward into sparkling freshwater pools are some of Hawaii's most beautiful natural wonders. If you're on the Big Island, stop by Rainbow Falls in Hilo or the spectacular 442-foot Akaka Falls, just outside the city. On Maui the Road to Hana offers numerous viewing opportunities; at the end of the drive, you'll find Oheo Gulch (also known as the Seven Sacred Pools), with some of the most dramatic and accessible waterfalls on the islands. Kauai is loaded with waterfalls, especially along the North Shore and in the Wailua area, where you'll find 40-foot Opaekaa Falls.
Each of the six main islands, Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Lanai and Molokai are separate, distinct, and infinitely complex. There's so much to see and do that many people return to the Aloha State year after year.
