Start off the day by yoga and if you like most likey workout Jion the Hawaii gym
1. As much as sleeping in may feel good, starting your morning with yoga on the beach will set the day’s tone and help you feel even better in the long run. Yoga has been proven to have health benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety, lessening chronic pains, bettering mood and energy, and improving respiration and circulatory health.
Due to the added obstacle of keeping steady while on sand, yoga on the beach will force you to truly forget about anything on your mind and bring you into the present moment, where the only worry you’ll have is whether or not you can reach your toes. You may not come out of it feeling like you’re ready to kickstart your new life as a traveling yogi, but hearing the ocean waves crash onto the beach and watching the sunrise as you give your body a much-needed stretch can’t even compare to the standard, indoor yoga of back home.
The best part is that it can be done on any beach, and all you need is a mat. If you would like an instructor, however, or don’t have your own mat with you, this can be easily arranged through your accommodation or through a tour company. Some places, like the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, combine the exercise with a cultural activity, such as e’ala’e, which is the Hawaiian practice of clearing the mind and body and greeting the sun at first light.
Hike To Beautiful Vistas
2 For those not into waking up in the morning just to exercise, or for those that do and want to continue doing so, a hike is a great way to get the blood pumping and immerse yourself in nature. The opportunities for hiking in Hawaii are vast and, depending on the route you take, will have you traversing through valleys, forests, and meadows or past volcanoes, rivers, and waterfalls. Regardless, every single one is sure to provide you with gorgeous views of your surroundings.
In particular, hikers love the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon on Kauai; Ka’au Crater and Waimea Falls on Oahu; Kalaupapa and the Moomomi sand dunes on Molokai; Puu Pehe and Koloiki Ridge on Lanai; Volcanoes National Park and Papakolea Beach on the Big Island; and Iao Valley and Haleakala on Maui, where you can also hike at night to see the sunrise over otherworldly terrain that’s reminiscent of Mars.
Enjoy Your Hawaii Trip With Amazing Waterfalls
3 Waterfalls are a perfect place to, if space allows, just sit and relax, read, have a picnic, or even cool off by getting into the water. Hawaii has a seemingly endless number of waterfalls on all of its islands, ranging in size and accessibility. The most popular ones are easier to get to, including Wailua Falls on Kauai, Pāpalaua on Molokai, Manoa on Oahu, Wailua on Maui, and Akaka on the Big Island. While those are all worthy of a visit in their own right, there are many others just as beautiful that take just a little more effort on your part to get to.
If you’re not taking the self-driving route around Hawaii, tour companies like Hawaii Forest and Trail will do the work for you, with both specialized tours (like a waterfall-only tour that takes you to several of them) or well-rounded tours that include different pieces of what the island you’re has to offer, including a waterfall or two.
Soul Needs Peaceful Mind And Heart
4 For a different kind of boating experience, take a catamaran, a spacious ship with two hulls basically built for relaxation, out onto the water. Entire catamarans can be rented out for you and your group for a truly unique outing, whether it’s for a day party on the water, a cruise to see the Hawaiian landscape from a different perspective, to spot some wildlife (whale season in Hawaii is from mid-December to mid-May), or all of the above, you’re likely to experience all of these regardless.
If you’re riding solo or an entire catamaran is too much, there are group catamaran tours available for booking which can be arranged through wherever you’re staying or on your own.
Enjoy Hawaii in Sport Best Experience Forever
5 Hawaii wouldn’t be Hawaii without water sports, and the list of things you can do runs long: surfing, paddle boarding, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, and parasailing, among tons of others.
It would almost be easier to list what you can’t do. If you’ve never done one of those particular water sports, fear not because experienced guides will be with you nearly every step of the way to ensure you have an exhilarating, yet safe, time. Booking one of these activities is as easy as walking down any beach, where you’ll see various outfitters next to gear just waiting to be rented out for the day.
BEST PLACE FOR COUPLES AND HONEYMOON PLAN
If you’re looking for a mixture of big city atmosphere and an impressive array of historical and natural attractions, then Oahu is likely for you. Honolulu, Hawaii’s largest city, is packed with every kind of cultural activity, plus top-notch restaurants, shopping, museums, theaters, and more. With its wide crescent beach, backdropped by high-rises and the iconic Diamond Head crater, Waikiki remains a hub for surfers, locals, and tourists alike. Further afield, you’ll find two beautiful mountain ranges, amazing North Shore surf breaks, plus other must-see historic and cultural sites, including Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona, and numerous botanical gardens.
To post up in the heart of Waikiki Beach, consider booking a room at ‘Alohilani Resort or the hip downtown hideout, Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. For those who prefer more remote setting, there’s Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko’Olina, on the island’s sunny western coast, or the North Shore Turtle Bay Resort, where the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall was filmed.
Honeymooners who prefer for a more beachy, less big-city vibe should put Maui at the top of their list. The island was formed by two volcanoes, most notably the 10,000-foot Mt. Haleakala, which still inspires visitors with its amazing sunset views and abundant adventure activities. There are plenty of areas worthy of a Maui honeymoon: Wailea Beach is the most popular, with plenty of resorts built along its golden shores. Kapalua Bay, to the northeast, offers a more reserved island home, while inland towns such as Paia provide a first-hand look at Hawaii’s exigent cowboy culture. Make the “Road to Hana,” an unbelievably scenic coastal drive, to spend a night or two in the perfectly stuck-in-time town of Hana.
Depending on your desired level of remoteness, top Maui resorts include: the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (with picturesque ocean views), Montage Kapalua Bay (home to large, apartment-style accommodations), and Travaasa Hana (a secluded bungalow-style retreat).
Kauai is known as the Garden Isle for good reason. It’s the wettest, greenest, and lushest of all the Hawaiian islands. While a Kauai honeymoon often includes a posh resort (there are a number on the island) and popular attractions (like the 10-mile-long Waimea Canyon), the island still manages to feel like a remote tropical paradise. Activities include kayaking along the scenic Na Pali Coast, hiking the scenic Kalalu Trail, or walking hand-in-hand along Hanalei Bay, one of Kauai’s most stunning golden beaches.
Perch yourselves right on the North Shore beaches at Princeville Resort or at Kauai Beach Resort, an oceanfront property near Lihue. For a more out-of-the-box stay, consider booking one of the 61 traditional bungalows at Waimea Plantation Cottages, which fronts a black-sand beach along Kauai’s Western Shore.
