How better to spend your holidays than relaxing on some of the world’s most beautiful white sand beaches? On Oahu Island, there are plenty of beaches with calm waves for those who prefer to be far from the business of tourism or nautical activities. Lanikai beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is far removed from anything closely related to mass tourism. With turquoise water, white sand and coconut trees, this island is as close to paradise as one could imagine and is only accessible by a tiny path onto the beach.
For those who are keener to practise water sports, there are plenty of beaches with astonishing waves to ride. Surfing is the national sport on the islands and the famous waves of Waikiki beach, along the north shore of Honolulu, are the dream of every ambitious surfer. With café doors shaped as surf boards, the laidback ideology of surfing shapes the life of the locals and creates a relaxed feel to the islands. If you don’t know how to surf, here is the perfect opportunity to learn from passionate professionals who can teach you and share their love for the sport with you. Some of the best beaches where you can surf include Haleiwa Beach, Ehukai Beach Park and Sunset Beach.
Create magical moments during your yacht charter in Hawaii and swim with turtles. Gorgeous creatures to observe in the water, you can learn more about nature as you take opportunities to swim with them and discover more about how they move and how they relate in their natural habitat. The turtles appear even in the most touristy places, but unsurprisingly it’s best to encounter them in more quiet environments. Cockroach Cove in the south of the island or Makua Beach in the west of the island are excellent turtle-spotting locations.
Exploring nature reserves with a diverse flora and fauna is often the best way to get to know a destination and to relax into the way of life. There are a wide variety of trails to explore which range in difficulty and length. Manoa Falls Trail is an easy trail so perfect for beginners or those unfamiliar with long hikes and Koko Crater Trail and Kalauano are moderate-level trails.
Diamond Head is a volcanic landscape situated on the Hawaiian island Oahu. While part of the region is closed to the public, the beaches and resorts which sit close to the crater remain popular tourist attractions. You can reach the edge of crater by taking a hiking route for 1.1 kilometres and the return journey takes about 90 minutes. While the hike is not difficult, the path is not paved, and you have to cross tunnels and mount steps to reach the summit. However, the climb is worth it for the magnificent view.
Situated in a bay where the Hawaiians used to fish for oysters, Pearl Harbour is an historical and symbolical site which played a key role in the Second World War and continues to serve as a US military base today. A visit to the site will enable you not only to learn how Pearl Harbour got its name but also more about the way of life for US soldiers as well as the historic boat USS Missouri. We would recommend setting aside half a day to visit the area as well as the USS Missouri. A guided tour around the boat lasts for around 90 minutes.
Did you know that the Hawaiian archipelago produces more than 50% of the world’s bananas? Some of the islands are only made up of banana fields. During your yacht charter in Hawaii, be sure to visit a banana plantation which will prove to be an enriching experience which enables you to familiarise yourself with the culture of the bananas, the different types and the production. The world’s biggest banana plantation is found in Hawaii; the Dole plantation was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 as being the biggest banana plantation in the world. Entry to the site costs 6 euros, but with more than 14,000 different varieties of plant, there is no price for this experience. You can take a walk through the plantation and sample the bananas as you go. The homemade banana ice cream is a refreshing snack after a long stroll through the fields.
