Aloha readers – Greetings with flowers of Hawaii, Hawaiki from proto-Polynesian language meaning “ place of the gods”.
Aloha – I wanted to use this powerful word in Hawaiian language.
It has many meanings, and all of them are great ones: love, greetings, welcome, best wishes and goodbye.
Hawaii is a state of US, with a nickname “ Aloha State”.
Whoever can interpret it own way, could also be a state of love. For us, it definitely was!
Hawaii consists of over 130 islands and the biggest ones are Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Niihau and Kahoolawe.
Great things heard about the island Kauai, unfortunately we did not have time to visit all of the islands and especially Kauai, but we had a lot to see during our Hawaii Holidays and explore on Oahu, the main island of Hawaiian islands.
Flowers of Hawaii – Dream travel destination
We wanted to include an exotic, tropical travel spot for our trip as well, and Hawaii holidays was of course an easy choice.
The idea of spending next 5 days and 6 nights on a most isolated island in the World.
Yes, Hawaii is most isolated. It is located in the middle of Pacific Ocean, it takes around 2400 miles to California, 3900 miles to Japan and 5000 miles to China.
Being so far away from everything else in the world, makes this place even more unique.
For the best beaches of your Hawaii holidays, Oahu is certainly a place to be.
Nevertheless, worth to mention still a mysterious and favorite choice of many people Kauai, is the oldest island of Hawaii and has wonderful beaches over there.
The youngest island, and at the same time biggest lack of good beaches due to the fact that the island is still in the process of making its own form, since the volcano is active and continually erupting.
It would take few millions of years until we could head to the Hawaii Big island for nice beaches. Till that happens, lets enjoy Oahu Beaches.
Our little cottage was located 50 meters from Waimanalo Beach.
Reason why we chose this location was because it looked very beautiful from the pictures.
It came out that this was actually a fantastic choice.
Our second option was Kailua Beach, where we later of course went for a visit, was just too full of tourists and people in general.
Waimanalo is perfect since it is so empty and quiet, it really feels that you are on a private beach.
In the morning and afternoon hours the beach is the place for the newlyweds, including us.
Many couples decide to make wedding ceremonies at the Hawaiian beaches, you see many brides with flowers of Hawaii in hair.
Waimanalo was also one of them, nevertheless the amount of brides in Honolulu is way higher than in the rest of the island.
Located on the Northern part of Oahu, well known place for its great waves and definitely attractive beach for surfers.
Best season for surfers to visit Waimea Bay is from December to March, when the big waves hit the Northern Coast of Oahu.
Hawaii holidays like a Paradise
During your stay on Oahu there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself:
Getting married with a traditional Polynesian way, hiking, road-trip around the island, sun-bathing, Polynesian dance shows, enjoying local food, buying food from locals, as we did, was wonderful to taste the real Hawaiian banana bread and drink coconut milk from the coconuts.
Dragon fruit (Pitaya), which is the sweetest in Hawaii, tasting wonderful seafood and fish dishes, enjoying sunsets and sunrises.
Time flies quickly, Hawaii holidays was wonderful and we had to head back to the airport. Everything is thought detailed in Hawaii, wonderful airport with lovely flower designs everywhere. Toilet signs as well not forgotten, just a reminder that you are in Hawaii 🙂
We will never forget our Hawaii holidays – a place such as Hawaii will remain in your memories until you refresh it and visit it again – We will repeat our Hawaii holidays!
With love and flowers of Hawaii, Leilani bird
