Fantastic Island and Beach Attractions in Hawaii

28 January 2009

Royal Hawaiian Hotel

In spring 2009, Hawaii will host several events, some ongoing, some one-time. The ongoing events include lava viewing at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The park itself has 323,431 acres, trails totalling 150 miles, and seven distinct types of ecology, from sea level – where lava flows into the ocean – up to 13,667 feet.

The Polynesian Cultural Center has seven villages of the native peoples of Hawaii and other Polynesian cultures, where visitors can participate in daily activities. The Center also hosts festivals, an extravagant luau, a canoe pageant, and a terrific night show. Festivals include the 17th Annual World Fireknife Competition and Samoa Festival, and the Tenth Annual Maori Song and Dance Competition.

Hurricane season is from June to November, but true hurricanes are rare; winds usually don’t exceed 74 mph. Thus, your stay at the beaches will be more pleasant compared to the Caribbean, which regularly has dangerous hurricanes.

Tourism at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel has picked up. After major renovation, it held the Aloha Inaugural Ball January 20th, and will celebrate its Grand Opening Gala on March 7th. Senator John McCain met his wife in its legendary Mai Tai Bar, and celebrities including Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake are seen in Kailua (Oahu), the hotel’s location. The town itself has a beautiful beach, and incredible views of the mountains.

Any place you travel to in the Hawaiian Islands will be fantastic. Especially now that the President will be spending his vacations there, Hawaii promises to be more exciting than ever.
