#Hawaii #Kauai The Right Way to Visit When the Time is Right

Nāpali Coast

With all due respect to aloha—that time-honored verbal stand-in for the Hawaiian spirit—there’s a lesser known Hawaiian term you will gain an even deeper appreciation on your next visit: #mālama. One of those nuanced local words that doesn’t translate so neatly, it conveys a combination of protecting, preserving and honoring the world around us. And when that world happens to be Kaua’i—Hawaii’s primordially gorgeous Garden Island—the impulse to treasure and care for it comes, well… naturally.

Double-waterfalls, primeval rain forests, multicolored canyons, jagged emerald cliffs that plunge straight into the ocean… that’s just the short list of items that will awe and inspire you into a place of mindful stewardship. Somewhere Over the Magical Rainbows!


Manawaiopuna Falls |
Of course, that same spirit of protectiveness extends to the well-being of everyone on the island, so visiting at this exact moment would involve a 14-day quarantine—and hey, hats off if you can swing a couple of weeks at one of the island’s newly-dubbed “bubble resorts” (generally large and amenity-laden properties where you have the run of the resort, so long as you consent to tracking devices and Covid testing, among other particulars).

Another way to look at these recently enacted protocols. They will help you appreciate a second local concept: #kuleana. Again, it’s a nuanced idea, like #mālama, but translated loosely, the word means responsibility, with an emphasis on taking ownership of our actions and their effects on our communities and surroundings.

Even if you can’t visit right now, you will want to eventually! With that in mind, read on for some of our favorite places that inspire both mālama and kuleana, though we have no doubt that when the time comes, you will discover a few of your own.

Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park
#Nāpali, The Cathedrals |

The deep valleys in this 6,000-acre wilderness house majestic waterfalls, terraced stone fields and ancient temples—and open onto one of the planet’s most ravishing and recognizable coastlines you have likely seen those rugged emerald sea cliffs in anything from Jurassic Park to The Descendants.

Keep in mind that this isn’t a park you can drive into. But exploring its magnificence on foot is well worth the effort. In good weather, expert hikers should consider the 11-mile Kalalau Trail, where essentials include walking sticks, sturdy boots, plenty of drinking water and the right permits. An easier but equally amazing alternative: Hike the first two miles from Hā‘ena State Park and then two miles ma uka (toward the mountains) to Hanakāpī‘ai Falls. Be sure to secure your parking/ entrance pass well in advance, and on the way back, stop at Kē‘ē Beach for a dip. Whichever hike you do, note that Hanalei Town is a great place to pre-caffeinate, and the Napali Art Gallery & Coffee House at Hanalei Colony Resort is a particular favorite for espresso drinks and Kaua’i-made products.

For jaw-dropping perspectives on the coastal portion of the wilderness park, take a boat, helicopter—or both. Seeing those Technicolor cliffs plunge into the Pacific is the kind of thing one never tires of, and may well come with bonus whale and dolphin encounters.

Waimea Canyon State Park

The so-called Grand Canyon of the Pacific is 14 miles long and more than 3,600 feet deep with surreal vistas to spare. For the clearest conditions and best photo ops of the prismatic walls and buttes, visit in the morning, as cloud cover can set in by the afternoon. 

A Waimea Canyon Helicopter tour is an absolute MUST. And should be reserved at the time of your original reservations so as to not get there to only find out they are all sold out!  

If you’re going to descend into the depths on a day hike, fuel up (and reward yourself afterward) with sugarcane or pineapple from the vendors at the Waimea Canyon lookout. And look out for the ridge-loving mountain goats; the red dirt on their white coats makes them blend in easily.

Kōke‘e State Park
A choose-your-own-adventure collection of seven trails, Kōke‘e lets you wander through koa hardwoods and norfolk pines, check endemic birds off your list (try to spot the bright-red apapane), stop and smell the wildflowers—and much more.

But before you hit the trails, stop by the Kōke‘e Natural History Museum for an insightful overview of the park and current walking conditions. And word to the wise: If you reach the Kalalau or Pu‘u O Kila lookout and encounter mists, don’t walk away. Give it at least 20 minutes, and your patience may be rewarded by glorious breaks in the clouds that reveal unreal views of Kalalau Valley. Another must: the sweet-tart liliko‘i (passionfruit) pie at Kōke‘e Lodge, where Nick Castillo sings sweet old-time Hawaiian music on Sunday afternoons.

Fern Grotto

This lava cave cloaked in ferns and mists—and paired with a waterfall—is so magical, you won’t be surprised to learn the grotto was once reserved only for Hawaiian royalty. To get there, you’ll travel by boat along the Wailua River with Smith’s Kaua’i’s Fern Grotto Boat Tour—adding traditional local songs and stories to the trip.  A magical place for a #DestinationWedding, which has to be prearranged months in advance because of the popularity. 

Wailua Falls

This roadside spectacle is the rare waterfall that’s as accessible as it is stunning—nature’s answer to a drive-in movie. Or TV show as the case may be: You may recognize the double-cascade from the opening credits of Fantasy Island. Plunging from a height of about 80 feet, these side-by-side streams grant early birds a bonus treat: If the sun hits the mist at the right angle, the resulting rainbow is epic. Note that parking can be tight, but people don’t stay long after scoring their Insta-prize photo. Be sure to check out another waterfall on a Wailua tributary, too: the lacy ‘Ōpaeka‘a Falls and—across Kuamo‘o Road—a sweeping view of the Wailua River valley.

Kaua‘i Museum

Housed in a lava rock building!, the exhibits here will school you on everything from the island’s geology to Hawaiian monarchy. Don’t miss the arts and crafts from Kaua’i and Ni‘ihau (a small, mysterious isle dubbed the “Forbidden Island”) nor the exquisite Ni‘ihau shell jewelry at the gift shop. Just know that the tiny, delicate, multi-hued creations can be pricy, reflecting the rarity of the shells and the painstaking artistry of the makers.

A Foodie’s Delight Lydgate Farms
Immerse yourself in the local chocolate scene at Lydgate Farms, a 46-acre outpost in the foothills of the island’s east side. During a guided tour, you’ll get insights into the harvesting, fermenting and drying of cacao beans as you wander the fragrant and lush grounds. Of course, you will taste some of the exquisite house chocolate, but the farm’s palm blossom honey is amazing, too—as is whatever tropical fruit may be in season during your visit. To taste more local treasures, hit the food stand at Hanalei Taro & Juice Co. for taro burgers, taro hummus or taro mochi cake, Midnight Bear Breads for the macadamia pesto—and the Kaua’i Coffee Company’s local outpost for estate reserve varieties that haven’t hit the mainland market yet.

Kauai’s beaches
Po‘ipū Beach |
Of course, you can’t visit a Hawaiian island without hitting the beach, and Kaua’i has an embarrassment of riches. One you shouldn’t miss is Po‘ipū Beach on the island’s southern shore, where you’ll find golden sands and a unique sandbar that’s split in two, with calm, kid-friendly waters on the left and an open bay on the right (great for experienced swimmers and snorkelers). And if you spot rare Hawaiian monk seals there, mālama dictates that you stay at least 100 feet away (150 feet if a mother seal is with a pup). From December through April, you might even spot migrating humpbacks.

Families with small children will love the lifeguard-staffed Lydgate Beach Park, home to a rock wall that provides two sheltered swimming areas. And if you’re looking to give back, the weekly Friends of Kamalani & Lydgate Park Saturday beach cleanup is a great way to score bonus mālama Kaua‘i points.

But for the most iconic local beach experience, head to the North Shore’s Hanalei Bay—where the two-mile golden crescent comes with lifeguarded shores, an emerald-green mountainous backdrop and enough magic to sustain you until your next trip to Kaua‘i.

Time to stop dreaming and start planning! To book your trip to Kaua’i when the time is right.

Ways to Experience Maui Magic Without the Crowds JESS@FriendsTravel.com

Filed under: Cruise Hawaiian Islands,Golf Hawaii,Haleakala State Park,Hana,Hawaii,Maui,Oheo Gulch Seven Sacred Pools Waterfalls,Paia,Upcountry,Wailea Coastal Walk — #Hawaii with #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa90069 JESS@FriendsTravel.com @ 4:02 am

Ways to Experience Maui Magic Without the Crowds

Often considered the ultimate destination in the Hawaiian Islands, Maui, with its abundant nature, vibrant culture, and rich history full of sugarcane and cowboys, has earned top marks from T + L readers eight years in a row.

Though island visitors tend to make a beeline toward Lahaina and the sprawling hotels of Kaanapali, Maui’s less-trodden outposts reveal faces of the Valley Isle many travelers rarely see. Heading inland delivers a taste of authentic Maui flavor — literally. The pastoral slopes of Haleakala, the island’s 10,023-foot shield volcano, nurture abundance in the form of lavender, goat cheese, craft spirits, honey, wine, and, of course, Maui’s famed cattle. Meanwhile, the windswept east coast and the sunny southern shore offer their own unique brands of allure.

Here are three ways to delve into some hidden Maui magic.

The Upcountry

Funky Paia on Maui’s north shore was a thriving plantation hub during king sugar’s heyday, but the industry’s decline hobbled the local economy. Windsurfers breathed new life into town in the late ’70s when the epic trade winds and winter swells at Hookipa Beach began attracting hordes of big wave seekers. These days, surf shops and cafés mingle with hip boutiques and galleries in this bohemian beach town.

Greet the day at Paia Bay Coffee & Bar, an eco-eatery that serves island-style breakfasts alongside delicious lattes in a tropical, open-air garden. Afterwards, pop into Heart in Paia, a pocket-sized shop tucked around the corner, for handmade Hawaii-themed jewelry and artwork created by Maui native Lynn Lindell Baldwin.

A short drive south leads to historic Makawao and the scenery along the way — chestnut-colored cattle grazing on rolling green pastures — provides a clue to the town’s backstory. This is paniolo country, the heart of Maui’s proud cowboy legacy, which began in 1793 when British naval captain George Vancouver gifted a herd of longhorns to King Kamehameha I. Get schooled at the tiny Makawao History Museum, where mini-exhibits, ranch-relics, and old fashioned photos share tales of the community’s diverse, plantation-era culture.

Afterwards, explore present day Makawao with a stroll along Baldwin Road. Lined with cool mom and pop shops and unique galleries, the town’s main drag centers around a lively artisan scene. Stop in to visit with Jordanne Weinstein at her studio-meets-gallery where she paints and displays her vibrant landscapes and still lifes. Or follow a winding path behind the town’s plantation-style storefronts to Haku Maui, a snug oasis where owner Britney Texeira weaves gorgeous lei poʻo (head leis), using nothing but fresh flowers and greenery. If you’re lucky, your visit will coincide with one of Texeira’s workshops, where you can make a fragrant lei poʻo of your own.

For an authentic Upcountry experience, saddle up for a few hours on horseback at Piiholo Ranch. Owned by the Baldwin family for six generations, the 800-acre property sits on the verdant slopes of Halekala. Channel your inner paniolo on the ranch’s “Cowboy for a Day” adventure, driving a herd of Piiholo cattle across open ranchlands from pasture to pasture surrounded by panoramic Pacific views.

No matter where you look in the Upcountry, Haleakala, which means “The House of the Sun,” looms large. Though heading up to the summit for sunrise — and biking back down afterwards — is all the rage, doing so involves advanced reservations, a prohibitive wake-up call, and lots of company. A happy alternative to the sunrise circus? Sunset. Get to the summit parking lot a few hours before dusk to secure a spot and explore this side of Haleakala National Park — most notably, the remarkable Sliding Sands Trail, which leads down into the vast Haleakala Crater. The entire trail is 11 miles, but you can hike in for as long as you want and then turn around. When the air begins to take on a chill, find a westward-facing place to sit, bundle up, and wait for the show. It’s otherworldly.

It’s long been said that the Road to Hana isn’t about Hana. But that’s a myth — one that has led many visitors to treat this sleepy hamlet on Maui’s eastern edge as just another pit stop during marathon, out-and-back jaunts from the island’s big resort areas. But that may not be all bad — Hana remains one of the few havens of old-Hawaii in the entire archipelago and the town’s soulful vibe swiftly envelops those who opt to linger after the day-trippers have disappeared.

In 1946, San Francisco entrepreneur Paul Fagan opened the six-room Kauiki Inn as a way to entice travelers to visit Hana just as the town’s last remaining sugar plantation closed its doors. Those six rooms multiplied through the years and today Travaasa Hana sprawls across 70 lush acres scattered with breezy, ocean-facing bungalows. Staying here feels a bit like being at summer camp — Travaasa prides itself on being an experiential resort, offering multiple exploratory “pathways,” from culture and culinary to wellness and adventure — but with plenty of luxurious creature comforts to polish its semi-rustic edges.

In the morning, grab a flashlight and head across the street for a short-but-spectacular sunrise hike at Fagan’s cross. The 30-foot lava-rock monument was erected in the early ’60s in memory of Fagan’s role in Hana’s revival. Afterwards, fuel up for the day with breakfast burritos and cold brew at the Surfing Burro, a bright orange food truck a quick stroll down the Hana Highway.

Options for other Hana adventures are plentiful. About 10 miles south you’ll find the Kipahulu District of Haleakala National Park and the famous pools at Oheo Gulch. Sometimes called the Seven Sacred Pools — there aren’t seven and the pools, despite being a onetime playground for ancient aliʻi (Hawaiian royalty), aren’t sacred — Oheo is considered a major Maui attraction. Staying overnight in Hana gives you home-court advantage and a morning foray to the pools offers the best shot at solitude.

If the timing works out you’ll be back in town in time for lunch. Grab a table overlooking Koki Beach at Huli Huli chicken and dig into ridiculously good Hawaiian island barbecue. Though Koki is one of Maui’s prettiest beaches, it’s not ideal for swimming. Fortunately, an idyllic dip is just two minutes away at Hamoa Beach. Travaasa offers lounge chairs and towels for guests on the sandy, salt-and-pepper crescent. While away the afternoon bathed in sunlight filtered through the leafy fronds of surrounding Hala trees.

South Maui
A few days spent wrangling cattle, scrambling over a’a lava, and driving twisty roads through misty rainforest begs for some classic Maui R&R. For the island’s sunniest beaches, head to Wailea, a peaceful resort area on the southwestern coast. The scent of plumeria, a shiny, kukui nut lei, and a glass of fresh guava juice welcomes you to the elegant Fairmont Kea Lani where plush suites and dreamy beachfront villas invite rejuvenation.

Ease into the scene with a stroll along the Wailea Coastal Walk. The paved path, edged with electric green napuka shrubs and swaying coconut palms, begins right in front of the Kea Lani at lovely Polo Beach and winds for about a mile and a half past the golden crescents of Wailea, Ulua, and Mokapu beach parks. For runners, the walk becomes a photo-worthy route for an early morning trot.

Luxurious surroundings don’t mean adventures need to end and an excellent nearby option is the rugged Hoapili Trail. Part of an ancient, 138-mile path known as the King’s Highway, the trail traverses the youngest lava flow on the island and stretches for about five and a half miles along Maui’s secluded, far-southern coastline. Along the way, the brilliant blue Pacific thunders against seemingly endless fields of jagged lava and black feral goats clamber among groves of kiawe trees. The trail begins about six miles south of Wailea at La Perouse Bay — a fabulous place to spot whales in the winter months — and though you can go it alone, a guided excursion with Heather Reck, the Fairmont Kea Lani’s Energy Ambassador, delivers a much richer experience.

Afterwards, explore some of South Maui’s beaches, where you’re more likely to spot coolers and fishing poles than cabanas and cocktails. Just as stunning and far less crowded than their counterparts in Kaanapali, these local favorites offer some of Maui’s best snorkeling as well. One of the most scenic is Poʻolenalena, with soft sand and gentle surf great for boogie boarding. Take your snorkel to the south end of the beach where giant honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles), can be seen munching on algae while psychedelic parrot fish and blue-lipped humu humu nuku nuku apuaʻa — the reef triggerfish that is the state fish of Hawaii — glide among colorful corals.

Best times to #visit #Hawaii, according to your travel preferences

Filed under: Big Island of Hawaii,Cruise Hawaiian Islands,Cruise to Hawaii,Golf Hawaii,Honeymoon,Kauai,Lanai,Maui,Molokai,Oahu,Spa Hawaii,Surfing,Waikiki,Wedding,Whale Watching — #Hawaii with #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa90069 JESS@FriendsTravel.com @ 5:07 am

#VisitHawaii By Land, Sea and Air

Those who choose to travel are strongly encouraged to check local government restrictions, rules, and safety measures related to COVID19 and take personal comfort levels and health conditions into consideration before departure.

Hawaii is a bucket-list destination for many reasons. The Aloha State is home to an extraordinary #culture, #pristine #landscapes, and #idyllic beaches. When you are searching for the best time to visit Hawaii, we have got you covered. The #HawaiianIslands are beautiful at any time of year, though individual preferences can dictate the best time to book your tropical vacation. Looking to save a few bucks! Plan your trip for the shoulder season. Hoping to spot a humpback whale! Opt for a winter or early spring getaway.

This is the best time to visit Hawaii, according to your travel preferences. Of course, while this advice is generally still applicable, the coronavirus pandemic may have impacted crowd levels, costs, and other events and offerings, so be sure to check before you plan your trip.

Best Time of Year to Visit Hawaii for Best Prices
Flights to Hawaii are generally at their most expensive from mid-December through mid-April. In 2019,  estimated that flights would be cheapest in January and September and most expensive in June and December. For extra savings, keep an eye out for flight deals from airlines. Hotel rooms, on the other hand, are likely to be cheapest during the fall months, from September through the middle of December. #JessKalinowsky will do this for you, he will always get the most advantageous rates based on YOUR dates, wants, needs, desires and expectations. Hometown Mainland USA to Hawaii! 

Tropical beach at beautiful sunrise. Nature background with lifeguard station and boat on shore.                  Best Time to Visit Hawaii for Great Weather
Travelers looking for the best weather in Hawaii will find that rainfall is at its lowest from April through September. However, according to the Hawaii Department of Health, hurricane season in the central Pacific lasts from June through November, though storms can happen at any time of year. Just remember there’s still plenty to do in Hawaii, even when it rains.

Most Popular Times to Visit Hawaii
According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, July typically has the most visitor arrivals of the entire year — in 2019, a total of 995,210 tourists came to the islands in July — and December is usually the second-busiest month. Travelers who want to avoid the crowds should also avoid booking trips during the last week of April and the first week of May. During this so-called Golden Week, hordes of tourists flock to Hawaii from Japan. In 2019, September saw the fewest monthly visitors, with 718,042 arrivals, the Hawaii Tourism Authority reported.  There are basically two times to visit Hawaii, When Mainland USA schools are IN Session, and when they are NOT IN Session. Because more families travel to Hawaii when kids are not in school. Plan accordingly.

There are plenty of annual events to keep in mind, too. Even though many of these events were canceled this year, 2020, due to the pandemic, notable yearly events include the #PGA Tour in January, the Aloha Festivals in August and September, and the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival in October. #Jess #Kalinowsky will guide you accordingly.

Best Times to Go Surfing in Hawaii
Visitors and locals can surf year-round on Hawaii’s famous waves, but there are a few things to keep in mind if you’re planning to hang ten. Waves are usually larger during the winter months, especially on the islands’ north-facing shores, so conditions are NOT ideal for beginners learning to surf. However, if you want to watch the experts tackle some big waves, this is a fun time to visit.

Best Times to Go Whale Watching
Those who visit Hawaii with the intent of whale watching will find humpback whales off the islands’ coasts from December through May. January, February, and March are considered by many as the peak of the season, as it’s when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration completes its annual whale survey.
Those seeking a perfect combination of fewer visitors, lower prices, and good weather will likely find their ideal booking window during the shoulder season in May or September.
