Planning your next holiday and looking for inspiration? The world is a big old place, and there is a lot to choose from. Well, how about Hawaii? It’s a far-flung destination for many, so you might not know much about it. Here are some reasons why it should be your next travel destination.


First of all, if you’re looking for good weather and the sunshine, Hawaii is one place where your hunt will go well! Thanks to how close it is to the equator, it is hot! Sure, the winter is a wetter time, but temperatures here are still pretty steady. You should appreciate the rain also; it helps keep the island as lush and green as it is. In the summer months, you’ll enjoy the hot sunshine, long days and warm air. Lovely! http://www.govisithawaii.com/hawaii-weather/ will give you more of an insight into the weather.

Ever heard of the Aloha spirit? This is what the locals regard their friendly natures and attitude towards life. It will come your way in the way they speak to you, and even serve you. It’s not just about how they act; is is so to be a way to achieve a strong state of mind. This can, in turn, help you achieve goals, sort out problems or just live a better life. You’ll get a real-life lesson in the Aloha spirit if you visit, as you’ll be able to witness it with your own eyes. You could pick up some tips for your own well-being, or habits to adopt for your return home. Learn more about the Aloha spirit at http://www.huna.org/html/deeper.html.


Now, if you’re on the hunt for good weather, you’re probably on the hunt for a great beach. Well, Hawaii has loads! 400 public beaches, in fact, across 750 miles of Hawaiian shoreline. Don’t just expect goldens sands, either. There are also beaches made of black, red, white and even green sand! Find out more about the last one at http://www.greensandbeachhawaii.com/!


Want to see something other than golden sea and turquoise sand? Happily, Hawaii has loads of culture and activities to enjoy. It may be the 50th state of the United States, but the culture is very different. Everyone in Hawaii is a minority, thanks to the fact that so many of the residents are from elsewhere. You’ll find Chinese, Japanese, Latinos and many more living here harmoniously alongside each other. This makes for a rich culture that seeps into every area of life. Expect a diverse range of food, music, architecture and more as a result. Find out more about culture in Hawaii over at http://bestinbeach.com/.


Like to shop? Hawaii has its own designer collection of shops, including Yves St Laurent and Chanel, both of which are in Waikiki. Like to walk? Expect stunning canyons, volcanoes, sea cliffs and more. Hawaii Island, which is also known as Big Island, is home to waterfalls, tropical rainforests and a volcanic landscape. These can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, from on foot to on horseback. Some places are so high and remote you can’t even access them on foot. Take Maui’s Honokohau Falls, for instance; the best way to see this incredible natural wonder is in a helicopter! Like to surf? You’re in luck! Whether you’re a novice or a professional, there will be a beach and waves for you. http://www.surfertoday.com/surfing/7056-the-best-hawaiian-surf-spots lists some of the island’s best surf spots.
