Hawaii Island is served by two airports, one in Kona and the other in Hilo. Even though there are flights from the mainland most come from Honolulu. Kona is the primary airport and Delta and Island Air are just two of the airlines that fly in here.

On the Hilo side of Hawaii, the “Tropical Side”, is a lovely boutique resort known as the Palms Cliff House Inn. For the most discerning of tastes, this lovely little 8 room resort has received rave reviews from some important tourist publications including Conte Nast and Travel & Leisure. From here it is easy access to the Volcano National Park, old Hawaii at Honomu or many other interesting sites of Hawaiian history.

Richardson’s Ocean Park is a great place for snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, diving or sunbathing on the black sand beach. A picnic area, bathrooms, showers and lifeguards as well as the calm protected waters makes this a great family spot. If you want accommodations with more going on; then perhaps the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows is for you. From simple guestrooms to villas to fabulous bungalows you will find your niche.

Check out the award winning Mauna Lani Spa, fitness room, the Tennis Club and a gorgeous beach. With two marvelous golf courses they have won the Gold Medal Award from Golf magazine every year since 1988. Slip into your UjENA swimsuit; grab your big hat, Oakleys and Hawaiian Tropic Sport Protection. The Beach, Links and Sun are callin...


Kauai Island is one of the islands in our state of Hawaii. You fly into Lihue Airport on United Airlines or Mokulele Airlines and the fun begins. Po’ipu Beach is on the south shore where you can try kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, hiking, surfing, bicycling, deep sea fishing, golf or a helicopter ride.

If you do nothing else you must contact Birds In Paradise and take a motorized hanglider flight over Kauai. Easy swimming and interesting snorkeling can be found at Queen’s Bath. Places to stay? So many! How about the Hilton in Lihue with three miles of secluded beach and a sand bottom freshwater pool? Bring the tanning lotion and sunscreen.

Prefer a condo, Kiahuna Plantation and the Beach Bungalows is thirty five acres on a wonderful swimming beach where you can do a little sunbathing too. Kiahuna Golf Club is nearby with shopping just across the street. Winter weather can be stormy but the temperatures are still warm. Winter water temperature drops to 74° from the high of 82° in the summer. Grab your Cooltan swimsuit and shirt for an all over tan.


Maui Island is the second most popular island in this our 50th state. Arrive at Kahului Airport on American, Hawaiian or Island Air. You head for your accommodations at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa or The Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa in Ka’anapali and feel the stress start to melt away.

There are a large number of beaches with comfort facilities that are good for snorkeling, scuba diving or surfing. Check carefully for good swimming areas due to currents. Go snorkeling at Black Rock, a lava outcropping with attached coral, with clear visibility and calmer waters.

Wander through the museums and shops in Lahaina, once a great whaling port or learn about volcanoes at Haleakala National Park. Also in this park are the Seven Sacred Pools, a must see that can be difficult to get to requiring hiking. Between the ocean and swimming pools your Maui Babe sun products would be a good to keep handy. With high temperatures in the summer in the 80’s and winter highs in the 70’s, you should be outside seeing the sights.
