Sights in Hawaii

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

All of the Hawaiian islands have great beaches – with sand ranging from white coral powder to black volcanic sand and even rare green olivine sand! Hawaii's beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. Whether you like a lot of activities and people, or secluded, private beach coves, you will find one to fall in love with here in Hawaii.

The Hawaiian islands are volcanic islands; from Maui’s Haleakala to Kauai’s Mount Wai’ale’ale, lava and craters of long-extinct volcanoes abound. With Perillo, you’ll fly over Wai’ale’ale – the best way to see it – in an exciting helicopter tour. The Big Island has Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world and the only active volcano in Hawaii.

 

The Pacific water is very clear in most places. Hawaii sightseeing with Perillo is truly something to behold. On the north shore of the islands, especially Oahu, the waves can get up to 25 or 30 feet during the winter months.  Not only is Hawaii the birthplace of surfing, it is also one of the best places in the world to do it. Not all the beaches have these large waves, however. Some areas are very calm – perfect for snorkeling!

Hawaii is the winter home of the majestic Pacific Humpback whale. The Humpbacks come to Hawaii to breed. They come all the way from the cold waters off Alaska where they summer and feed, and then they don't eat during their stay in Hawaiian waters. A whale watching cruise is a wonderful way to see these magnificent animals up close.
