3 things you should know before visiting Hawaiʻi

Hawaiʻi Travel Tips


  1. Hawaiʻi is so much more than just a beautiful place that you see in pictures. It is a place full of rich history and culture. Native Hawaiians navigated to the island’s about 1,500 years ago and thrived on these lands for generations, preserving the cultural heritage they brought while also pioneering fresh traditions. There is so much more to the history of Hawaiʻi and how it became what it is today so I urge you to take some time while here in the islands to learn about our history and culture. Here’s a few recommendations:
  2. Be conscious of sea animals. It is not uncommon to see sea animals while on the beaches in Hawaiʻi whether they are in the water with you or relaxing on the sand. It is important to be mindful of them and give them the space they need. Here’s an article by NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) sharing “10 Things You Can Do to Share the Shore and Sea With Pacific Islands Wildlife”
  3. Lastly, it is important to leave no trace while enjoying the natural beauty of Hawaiʻi. Ensure that you leave no litter behind and don’t geotag locations, so the environment remains unspoiled for future generations. Due to the amount of tourism Hawaiʻi gets it is easy for places to be overrun and for our ʻāina (land) to be left with ʻōpala (trash). By leaving no trace this not only respects the land but also contributes to the preservation of Hawaiʻi’s unique ecosystems.
