Kihei, Maui — 2 nights

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Step out of the city life by going to Zipline and Ho'okipa Beach Park. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Wailea Beach and Kamaole Beach Park II. Take a break from Kihei with a short trip to Scuba & Snorkeling in Lahaina, about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Makena Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with Native Intelligence, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ulua Beach, and experience rural life at Maui Tropical Plantation.

Honolulu, Oahu — 4 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore hidden gems such as Lanikai Beach and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
