Wind, water, fire and earth. Hawaii is one of the few places on the planet where you can experience all the elements before your eyes.
Choosing to visit Hawaii is the beginning of an amazing journey ahead, with no less than hundreds of sights and activities to immerse yourself within. But first, the biggest decision you’ll have to make is WHERE to begin. Vacationing in Hawaii’s chain of islands lives up to its reputation as one of the most exciting destinations for members to explore because not one of the islands is the same. Each boasts its own unique landscape, weather patterns, culture and defining features. Here are just a few highlights to get you started:
Also known as the "Big Island", Hawaii is the largest of all the Hawaiian Islands. Timeshare in Hawaii lives up to its reputation as one of the most exciting destinations for members to explore. It’s the vast volcanic landscapes that truly set Hawaii apart. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the largest park in the state. Feast your eyes on the steaming Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, see the fiery glow from the Halemaumau crater at night, hike along the Kilauea’iki crater floor and walk through the 500-year-old Thurston lava tube.
For more unforgettable experiences around the Big Island, sink your toes into black sand on Punaluu Beach, head beneath the surface and snorkel the warm and clear water in Kona, uncover the magic of Hilo’s Rainbow Falls, discover the blanket of green flora in the Waipio Valley and drive to the summit of Mauna Kea at 10,000 meters, the tallest sea mountain in the world. From lush green rainforests to arid volcanic lands, find it all on the Big Island of Hawaii.
If you are ready to explore beyond the big island, consider Maui. Known as “The Valley Isle”, it’s the 2nd largest Hawaiian island. Maui has world-famous beaches that stretch over 30 miles! These famous beaches come in a variety of colors due to the island's rich volcanic soil. Whether you are into surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing or just want to take a swim, Maui is perfect for you. There are also plenty of opportunities to experience the colorful local culture with a nightly sunset luau performance featuring song, dance, food and fire.
A little more remote but true to its island roots is Molokai. It’s the fifth-largest of the Hawaiian Islands, featuring the highest sea cliffs in the world and the longest continuous reef. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself unable to leave one of Hawaii’s largest powdery white sand beaches. If a private island in paradise is your calling, Molokai more than lives up to the Hawaiian Island dream. Explore this tropical playground from just about anywhere on this quaint island. Snorkel among its colorful reefs, swim alongside sea turtles, toss a line in for a catch or simply sway in a hammock between the palms to get a true dose of island life.
