Volcanic activity is an exciting, dramatic phenomenon. What makes it even more exciting are the landscapes it creates, and it is even better when we can visit them. The North Pacific island chain of Hawaii is one such place, the ‘Big Island’ of Hawai’i alone is made up of five major volcanoes. Helicopter rides are available over this volcanic area, particularly exciting at the moment, considering the recent eruption near the Pu’u O’o crater. This dramatic environment beckons the traveller in, to awaken curiosity, and hopefully fulfill it. My Destination Hawaii provides an overview of this.
Now, another thing which you may desire to incorporate into a holiday is to see dolphins. Not only that, but to touch them, and maybe even swim with them. This is all possible in this exotic location. Travel to Hawai’i or Oahu for example, and among other organizations, http://www.dolphinquest.com/ will let you do this. The whole family can take part in this magical activity, add the warm waters and sun and what could be better? How about some jet skiing, or scuba diving? Try http://www.hawaiiwatersportscenter.com/ for expert activities and loads of fun.
Of course, the Hawaiian Islands are also the perfect place to relax. While the water-sports are soaking their participants with exhilaration, you can always lie back and dream on one of the many white beaches. A great example is Molokai, a quiet island with secluded beaches and beautiful scenery. Seemingly far away from the rest of the world, here you will find the largest beach of the Hawaiian islands, Papohaku Beach. If you really want to escape for a while, this is the perfect place.
If however, you still want breathtaking photo opportunities, with a little more bustle, head to Oahu. Here you will find Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii and therefore the most populous city in the area with over 370,000 people. This makes for a guaranteed stimulating experience where you can sample the local culture and cuisine, and make a shamelessly touristy stop at Pearl Harbour. With all this to take in you will be glad that Waikiki Beach is nearby, so don’t forget your camera. The neighbourhood of Waikiki contains many hotels and resorts, including beachside hostels, ideal if you want to spend most of your time exploring and minimal time sleeping.
So, whether you want a holiday which is bursting at the seams with action, or just some time to top up the tan, the Hawaiian Islands are a great place to go. Fantastically picturesque and amazingly tropical, the warm waters surrounding the islands provide an inevitably idyllic environment.
