Hawaiian culture is very ʻohana (family) oriented so you rest assured your family will have a time they will be raving about for years until your next return.
Family Fun in the Water
Take the family on a snorkeling and sandcastle building day on sun-soaked beaches to exploring volcanoes and sacred cultural sites, the Hawaiian Islands are a natural playground you never outgrow. Popular snorkeling spots include the shallow, protected tide pools of Poʻipū Beach on Kauaʻi and the island of Hawaiʻi’s Kona coast, where you can even swim with dolphins and manta rays.
A trip to Sea Life Park gives the kids the chance to pet a sea lion, learn to surf from a pro on Waikīkī Beach, and see massive humpback whales splashing around during a whale-watching tour on Maui, Molokaʻi or Lānaʻi.
Beyond the Beach
Beyond the beach you will find an array of wonderful museums and natural attractions that will bring the family together. Learn to dance the hula at the Smith Family Garden Luau, Polynesian Cultural Center and many other authentic Lūʻau on every island. Kids can watch planetarium shows and participate in lava demonstrations at the Bishop Museum or learn how Hawaiʻi’s early explorers navigated to our shores by the stars at the ʻImiloa Astronomy Center. Or, let the little ones burn off some energy at our national and state parks, lush gardens and green spaces – from hikes through the clouds at ʻĪao Valley State Park to zipline adventures at Kualoa Ranch, a filming location of Jurassic Park.
If you’re enjoying your Hawaiian vacation at your resort you can be sure to find activities that will enchant the whole family.
