You’ve heard the old saying “When in Rome do as the Romans” well, this also applies to Hawaii.

While you mostly hear us talk about things you should do in Hawaii,  today we remind you about some of the things that bug locals about people visiting the islands which you should not do on your Hawaiian vacation. Making sure you respect the culture here (or anywhere you go)  is important. If you have unrealistic expectations about how things are done here differently than on the mainland,   your vacation could get off on the wrong foot and even be ruined!  Most people are very tolerant and appreciative  of our visitors however,  it’s to your benefit to understand a few things that will help you when your visiting the islands.

From taking your shoes off in homes,  to remembering not to turn your back on the ocean we’ll get you prepared to have a stress free vacation.


  1. There should be a ban and signs to indicate that nude children should not be allowed on public beaches as well, 2 weeks ago on Waikiki naked toddlers and young children ran around on the beach, pieces of fecal matter were found in the break water area. When I spoke to the lifeguard, he told me I should go to the pool at my hotel if I objected, I told him I didn’t pay $5000.00 to sit at a pool. Some weird guy was taking pics of these children ! They make diapers for the water.
