Iconic Experience

Even from outside, feel the energy of grand balls and hula performances, as well as the time of Liliuokalani's overthrow and imprisonment. Continue your Honolulu Walking Tour viewing the State Capitol Building and the 18-foot, bronze King Kamehameha Statue commemorating a great warrior, diplomat and leader.
  • Pearl Harbour: Explore the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, located in Punchbowl Crater, on a scenic drive. This burial in a national cemetery is for members of the armed forces who have met a minimum active-duty service requirement.
  • Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park brings new sights as you unlock the geology of the Islands. This UNESCO listed park and designated International Biosphere Reserve protects some of the most unique geological, biological and cherished cultural landscapes in the world and encompasses the summits of two of the world's most active volcanoes - Kilauea and Mauna Loa. You'll love experiencing this wonder for yourself viewing the steam vents and on a visit to the Kilauea Visitor Center.
  • Keauhou: Unlock the beauty of the must-see Punalu'u Beach Park, famous for its black sand and green sea turtles. Stroll along the black sand beach made of fragments of old lava flow. Then perhaps pause in a shady spot under the palm trees and keep your eyes peeled for endangered Hawksbill turtles and green turtles basking in the sun on the beach.
  • Kona: Get ready to sample one of the most expensive coffees on the planet, Kona Coffee. Currently, there are only about 3,000 acres of Kona coffee plants to supply the entire world, making it a very in-demand commodity. Visit the Kona Joe Coffee Farm and learn about this exclusive beverage and the work it takes to produce, all while tasting the coffee and taking in some of the most scenic views in Hawaii.
  • Keauhou: Discover the world of the giant manta rays (mobula alfredi) that come to the Kona shores at the Manta Ray Learning Center at the <name of resort>. Under the guidance of your Local Specialist, learn the manta ray's life cycle, the history of the rays in the area and how the center supports educational programs and funding scientists for research with a mission to support mantas in their natural environment. To top it all off, the lights from the resort shine into the water, attracting plankton which in turn attracts manta rays to the water right off the hotel.
  • Kaanapali: Enjoy a visit into old town Lahaina where you can dine at one of the many restaurants.
  • Waimea State Park: A display of changing colors and lights awaits at Waimea Canyon State Park, one of the Hawaiian Islands most awe-inspiring sites. Dubbed the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific,' the canyon is 14 miles long, 1 mile wide and more than 3,600 feet deep, with a lookout offering views of buttes, crags and gorges. You'll drive all the way up the canyon and bask in these views of different colored rock.
  • Kauai: Discover Spouting Horn blowhole, one of the most photographed spots on Kauai. Be amazed at how the Po?ipu surf channels into a natural lava tube and puts out a huge spout of water that can reach as high as 50 feet into the air. Listen for the hiss and roar of water that is the basis of a Hawaiian legend of a giant mo?o (lizard) named Kaikapu.
MAKE TRAVEL MATTER
  • Kona: Unlock the importance of salt in Hawaiian culture visiting a deep Ocean Salt farm. Watch the salt production process and taste different salts to explore the flavor profiles. Learn about the importance of salt in Hawaiian culture, how it's produced from deep ocean water and how this differs from salt produced in other locations.
