‘The only way to explore Hawaii is by island-hopping. Each island has its own hidden gems and you won't be disappointed. Whichever combination you choose, you’ll want to come back – it's one of my favourite places.’

‘Some of the roads can be very bumpy on the islands. If you are planning on hiring a vehicle, make the journey more comfortable and hire a larger car, like an SUV.’

Events & Festivals

Festivals and events are wonderful to include during your Hawaii holidays, offering a glimpse into the country’s authentic culture and traditions.

 

Kapalua Wine and Food Festival

Each June, Maui hosts the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival. Over a long weekend, the Kapalua Resort welcomes in food and wine experts to give seminars, wine tastings, and local cooking demonstrations. As a visitor you will be welcomed the Aloha way with some delicious meals.

Kona Coffee Cultural Festival

Grown on Hawaii Island, Kona coffee is renowned for its delicious flavour and aroma. For ten days each November, you are invited to get a glimpse of how the coffee beans are grown and sample the coffee within the jubilant atmosphere of live music and dance performances.

Aloha Festivals

The Aloha Festivals are a month-long celebration of Hawaii’s culture and traditions. Many of the archipelago’s islands join in the celebrations, offering a range of events. From ceremonies to parades, each of the events showcase Hawaiiaan culture. This is the perfect way to learn more about the islands’ fascinating spirit during your Hawaii holidays.

 

Waimea Town Celebration

Another celebration of Hawaiian culture and history, Waimea Town Celebration is a nine day festival held each February. The festival features a range of fun events across Kauai’s breath-taking West Side, full of live entertainment and delicious local food.

Honolulu Festival

Hawaii’s capital city celebrates the cultures of the Pacific Rim each March at the three day Honolulu Festival. Get a taste of the unique cultures through exhibitions, live entertainment, crafts, and great local food.

Local Cuisine

Get a flavour of the local culture through your palate during your Hawaii holiday. Here are a few of our favourite foodie dishes.

Taro Root

Known as the potato of the tropics, taro is a plant that has played a huge roll in Hawaii’s history and culture. The plant is celebrated for sustaining Hawaii’s earliest settlers with its starchy root, and locals now use it in everything from burgers to poi. 

Poi

One of Hawaii’s staple foods, poi is made from cooking and mashing taro root. Despite the purple mash appearance, poi is incredibly flavourful and beloved by locals.

Kalua pig

Whole pigs are roasted in a fire pit underground, lined with rocks and banana leaves. After being covered, the pig is cooked for an entire day. Kalua pig is a favourite with locals and usually made for big celebrations, so make sure you give it a try if you attend a luau (traditional Hawaiian party).

Loco moco

First invented in the town of Hilo on Hawaii Island, Loco moco is now a popular dish across the archipelago. A delicious comfort food, Loco moco consists of rice, a burger patty and a fried egg, all covered in a gravy. 

 

Poke

Another Hawaiian favourite is poke, a food made from ahi (raw tuna) that’s marinated in shoya, sesame oil, salt and green onions.

Lau Lau

Considered a soul food by many Hawaiians, lau lau is a tasty dish of leaf-wrapped fish and pork. The fish and meat is wrapped in ti leaves and taro leaves, secured with tied leaf stems, then steamed for hours. The result is a parcel of deliciously tender and juicy meat. Note that the cooked taro leaves are not to be eaten, as they are solely there to seal in the moisture and flavour.
