Our splendid joyride took off with a 2-hour whale watching in Maui. Our excursion started with the narration from our caption about the safety measures and the majestic experiences that we were going to have. Even though we could not witness the whales or dolphins, we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise experience. Especially the stunning views while traveling along Maui’s exquisite coastline was indeed a breathtaking experience. We believe that going on a cruise One of the best things to do in Hawaii.

Our main goal of spending 9 days in Hawaii was just to relax and keep all our stress at bay. We did the same mostly by spending a tranquil time at the beaches that mainly included Kaanapali Beach and Waikiki Beach. If one wants to try water activities in Hawaii, then Kaanapali Beach is the best option. Here, vacationers can try hands at snorkeling and witness the magical marine life. Apart from this, Waikiki Beach, which is one of the best beaches in Hawaii had crystal clear water where swimming was a delight. Although it was a bit crowded, we managed to have a wonderful and cozy time with each other.
3. The 9 Seater Flight: An Iconic Experience!
Without a shred of doubt, the island hopping in a plane from Ohio to Maui was the real highlight of our entire trip. The plane had only 9 seats and each seat was a window and an aisle seat. Witnessing the beauty of this place with a birds eye view was indeed one-of-a-kind experience for both of us. All-in-all we had a very unique experience flying on Mokulele Airlines. We would definitely go for it on our next Hawaii trip.
Shopping In Hawaii
Shopping in Hawaii is indeed a refreshing experience. This place offers various intriguing things that one can bring home as souvenirs. Being not much of shopaholics, we actually didn’t have a shopping spree. But one thing we shopped in abundance was “Macadamia Nuts”. Since these are locally produced, the markets are replete with these yummies. Additionally, some of the other things which we thought one could buy are Lei necklaces, Hawaiian quilt, Loa wood products, Hawaiian shirts, and many more.
Best Hawaiin Restaurants
Our dining experiences in Hawaii were next to perfection. We tried out several kinds of delicacies in various restaurants and cafes and noticed that the quantity of food was quite much for two persons. As a reason for that, we couldn’t go for too many options, nevertheless we extremely enjoy or dining experiences. We especially enjoyed gorging on the original cheesecake from “The Cheesecake Factory”. For people having a sweet tooth, pineapple ice creams from Dole Plantation is a must try. Lappert’s is also another eatery where we savored a variety of ice creams. Honestly, the food in Hawaii added great value to our 9 days in Hawaii trip.
One of the USPs of our vacation was the stay in the hotels. Our first stay was at Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach which was one of the best accommodations we’ve ever come across. Be it the facilities, the staff services or the scintillating ocean views, everything this was perfect here. Next, we stayed at Kaanapali Beach Club where the rooms were quite spacious and especially the location was something that impressed us to a great extent. Courtyard Waikiki Beach where we spent the last day featured spacious rooms but there everything was marvelously organized and special heed was paid to the cleanliness as well. Frankly, all these accommodation options offered us utter relaxation. Hotels in Hawaii
