Is it possible to speak of tropical destinations without mentioning Hawaii? The Aloha state has much to offer. There are things that you simply cannot skip doing on your first trip and there’s more to be done when you return for a 2nd and 3rd visit. Hawaii is the kind of place you get addicted to and be certain that you’ll be back for more.

Ever thought about surfing? It looks pretty cool but tremendously difficult. Hawaii is where you conquer your fear and learn to surf. Each winter in Hawaii professional surfers from all over the globe go against each other at the Vans Triple Crown while spectators which in awe. The competitions are usually at Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach which are difficult surf locations. If you’re interested in learning then stick to the South Shore. You can also go to Big Island’s Kahalu’u Bay in Kona where you’ll find instructors who can teach you how to surf.

Molokini is another exciting island that is really part of a submerged volcano and a state Marine Life Conservation District and Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary. It is an excellent place to snorkel and dive thanks to its rich reef which lets you see over 250 marine species. If you’re a fan of sunsets then put in some effort and climb 10,023 feet to the top of Haleakala which is a dormant volcano. The key is to get there early by about 4:30am covered in heavy clothes and with hot drinks in thermoses to avoid the cold’s biting effect. You need to make a reservation to make the trip to see the sunrise though so be sure to book in advance.

Ever seen a volcano before? Well do you want to? There are 5 active volcanoes in Hawaii with 4 of those being on Big Island. Kilauea Volcano is the one to watch as it is considered one of the most active volcanoes worldwide having been erupting nonstop since 1983. For a close view drive down the Chain of Craters road so you can watch the lava as it descends into the ocean.

Loves whales? Then you better go between January and March when humpback whales put on a show on the shores of Maui as they jump and splash. This is a beautiful site that makes Hawaii, Maui island specifically, very unique. Hawaii in itself is a lovely destination and like I said, one visit just won’t cut it and you’ll find yourself aching to return.
