Introducing Hawaii

Far from just the most exotic state of the U.S, Hawaii boasts a vibrant culture that is all its own. Its pristine white sand beaches, jungle covered hills, and active volcanoes make it the outdoor recreation destination of a lifetime.

When is the best time to visit?
Hawaii is a year-round destination, and the least expensive times to travel there are usually April, May, and September through October.

Where to go in Hawaii?
Each island has its unique flavor of Hawaiian beauty. Experience what big city life is like island style in Waikiki, hike through the Haleakalā National Park, visit lava up close and personal as it sizzles into the sea, or just relax on the beach and maybe even learn how to surf.

How many days do I need?
7 to 10 days will make for a great active (or relaxing) vacation in Hawaii, but it’s recommended that island hoppers spend at least 3 days at each one.

“The Heart of Hawaii” may be best known for the urban chic attitude of Honolulu and Waikiki, but it’s also home to quaint towns and rural roots in the interior and along the Windward Coast. And then there’s the legendary North Shore, synonymous with hot wave action and a cool surfer vibe.

Family Trip to Kauai · Hawaii - Apr 2 - Apr 10, 2016

Traveler: Tanguy P. - Local specialist: Angelei Hauge-Valko

Thx to Kimkim my family had a great vacation. I was tasked to organise the family trip :-)
As I had never been to Hawaii I didn’t know where to start. Finding the right island, the right area and right accomodation for the needs of my family helped us to enjoy it.
Kimkim helps you find hidden gems. Well done guys. Count on me to spread the word.
Tanguy - an evangelist :-)

Got more than I could hope for.

Hi Tanguy, glad that everything went smoothly. Angelei knows Kauai well, and I'm glad she shared a few of her hidden gems :) I hope the boys enjoyed their surfing lessons and were able to catch a few good waves...
