On our latest Hawaii Vacations Connection Podcast, hosts Aloha Bruce and Lanai Tabura have a free-wheeling and insightful discussion about must do Hawaii activities for anyone planning a Hawaii vacation.
After a shout-out to new listeners in the Philippines and a quick note about Lanai’s upcoming “pop-up” at Lineage Restaurant on Maui with Chef Sheldon Simeon (of recent “Top Chef” fame), Bruce and Lanai dive right in.
Lanai says right off the bat that going to the beach is probably the first and most important item on a Hawaii vacation must-do list. Bruce says that although Oahu beaches sometimes get negative internet comments for being too crowded, there are dozens of quiet, secluded beaches all over Oahu for visitors to enjoy. Lanai says his must do Hawaii activities on Oahu are on the West Side and in Kailua.
Our hosts also talk about the many farmers markets on Oahu, and that farmers markets can be found seven days a week on Oahu. Lanai says they feature local business that rely on word-of-mouth to spread awareness of their products.
The conversation moves onto ziplining at Kaena Point, helicopter tours, and hiking. Lanai gives his typically funny and correct opinion on what makes hiking in Hawaii so great: “No snakes!” or other dangerous animals.
Bruce and Lanai move on to Maui where they say snorkeling and whale watching are must-do activities. They also mention Haleakala and the Road to Hana. Bruce notes that Hawaii Aloha Travel helps vacationers plan for these activities.
Bruce talks briefly about waterfall rappelling gaining popularity, surf lessons, and challenging fears by doing things like parasailing.
As the conversation moves to the Big Island, Aloha Bruce and Lanai mention manta ray encounters, coffee farms, and of course, Kilauea Volcano. Fluming in Kohala is noted, which allows visitors to rent an innertube or kayak to ride the currents of freshwater irrigation ditches no longer in use.
On Kauai, Waimea Canyon, fluming, coffee farms and a variety of beautiful beaches are all must do Hawaii activities. Some activities and trails require permits. Our hosts note that they can help planning activities that require more preparation than a simple hike or trip to the beach.
Lanai also speaks briefly about beaches on the islands of Lanai and Molokai. Bruce notes Maui helicopter tours to Molokai.
