As a Hawaii Destination Specialist and a resident of Maui I hear all the time “Hawaii is so expensive!”This may be true when comparing the islands of Hawaii to smaller towns in the United States. But when you compare Hawaii to other world class resort areas we are actually a great bargain!
Fun things to do for free in Hawaii:
1. Hike Diamond Head Crater on the island of Oahu.
2. Learn all about the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
3. Stop by the Koloa rum factory on the island of Kauai and have a free sample of rum (must be 21+).
4. See an active volcano on the big island and watch the lava flow into the ocean
5. Visit Iao Valley on the island of Maui
6. Take a day trip to Hana and see all the beautiful waterfalls that Maui has to offer
7. Watch the water gush out of the blow hole on Kauai’s south side of the island
8. Hike a dormant volcano at the Waimea Canyon on Kauai
9. Akaka Falls on the big island of Hawaii is a quick 10 minute walk to 2 of the prettiest waterfalls on the island.
10. Check out the monster waves at Haleiwa on the north shore of Oahu!
11. Swim at Hulopoe Bay on Lanai in front of the Four Seasons Manele Bay and see the spinner dolphins
12. Opaekaa Falls is a breath taking waterfall located on Kauai. It is an easy drive from anywhere on the island.
13. See the sunrise on Maui atop Haleakala Crater at 10,000 feet.
