Family holidays to Hawaii
The tropical paradise of Hawaii, the newest of the 50 US states, is blessed with majestic scenery, fascinating volcanic activity, lush rainforests, a pleasant year-round climate, seemingly endless white-sand beaches and world famous watersports, which all combine to make these Polynesian islands a perfect retreat for both keiki –the Hawaiian word for children – and parents. On each of the state’s main islands you can enjoy varying landscapes, however,you will always receive the same warm welcome. When combined with a city break in Los Angeles or San Francisco, a family holiday to Hawaii is made even more special.
Oahu is home to Hawaii’s state capital Honolulu with its museums, attractions and the hugely popular Waikiki Beach making it a dream destination for all the family. Waikiki was once a royal playground and has been a popular beachfront resort offering a world of fun since the first hotel was built in 1901. The Hilton Hawaiian Village sits on Duke Kahanamoku Beach, Waikiki’s widest stretch of sand, and is a popular choice with families due to its superb location and facilities. At Camp Penguin children will learn about Hawaiian culture and history through fun and educational activities, while at the five-acre salt-water lagoon or one of the resort’s five magnificent swimming pools, the whole family can play or relax to their heart’s content.
Big Island holidays
The ever-expanding Island of Hawaii, or the Big Island as it is more commonly known, is the place to be for awesome geological wonders, historical sights, vast spaces and premier resorts. At the UNESCO World Heritage-listedHawaii Volcanoes National Park you can watch the island grow as the lava flows of the volcano Kilauea reach the sea.
Maui is the second largest of Hawaii’s islands but has a smaller population than Oahu and Big Island resulting in uninterrupted scenery, unspoilt beaches and small friendly towns – perfect for families seeking some quiet time to reconnect and enjoy their natural surroundings.
