Hawaii is stunningly beautiful, with lots of sightseeing opportunities and fun adventures. If you are traveling to this beautiful island, there’s just a ton of things to do; you will be spoilt for choice. From simple activities like getting yourself a massage to breathtaking activities like high wave surfing, Hawaii offers something for everyone. Or you can just choose to laze about on the beach and soak in the beauty. If you are just looking for a laid back activity, here are things you can do to relax in Hawaii.
1. Go scuba diving
The warm weather of the Hawaii is just perfect for diving. The crystal clear waters abound with beautiful sea creatures. The western side of the Hawaii island is the best place to dive because the waters are relatively calm here. The Kona-Kohala coast is one of the best places to scuba dive, especially for beginners.
2. Go on a romantic sunset cruise
Sail out to sea in the one of the many cruises organized just for this; to gaze at the sunset. Nothing compares to the beauty of the setting Sun in the Hawaii. It’s unique in a way that cannot be explained. So relaxing and romantic. It’s no wonder Hawaii is a honeymoon destination. The cruises come with cocktail and dinner on board. There is entertainment too involving live bands. And before the sun sets fully, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the coast.
3. Hit the spa
After a long day of activity, a spa will be the best place to pay a visit. Combine this with the famed traditional lomilomi massage native to Hawaii, and you are in for a great treat. There are numerous spas scattered all over, and you can choose between a closed or and open spa. Enjoy a body wrap, a scrub, a facial and may more services against the sound of waves splashing up the shore, and palm leaves whistling in the breeze. It can never be more relaxing. In fact, one of my favorite spas is run by a mainland cosmetic surgeon in GR Michigan that specializes in face lifts and although it’s not in Hawaii you can find similar services here in paradise as well. Find her on twitter as well.
4. Go sightseeing
Mountains, valleys, waterfalls, parks, cultural sites, the list of the things you can go out to look at is endless. You can go on your own in a rented car, or you can go as a group on an organized trip. You can also decide to go on a hike. Notable places to visit include the Hawaii volcanoes, the Waipio Valley for its breathtaking beauty, the Polynesian cultural center to have a glimpse of the traditional heritage and the Honolulu Zoo.
There are many other places which the sightseeing expedition organizers may suggest. Or you can decide to go nowhere in particular and just drive about, and the scenery will still amaze you.
Whatever you choose to do in Hawaii, you will never leave disappointed. It may not be possible to sample every piece of attraction, but the tranquility of the place and the people will leave you relaxed.
