Book Hawaii holidays to surf, meet dolphins, relax on beautiful white-sand beaches, and dance a bit of hula on dreamy Pacific islands. Here's what to expect...
Whether you plan a multi-island trip or spend your holiday really getting to know one place, Hawaiian breaks allow you to combine a completely relaxing getaway with trips to admire amazing landscapes, flora and fauna. And, you may even bump into the American President Barack Obama while you are there as he regularly visits the islands where he was born.
With the famous Waikiki Beach, lively capital Honolulu and the historic landmark Pearl Harbour, Oahu is probably the best-known island. Families will enjoy visiting the Sea Life Park where it is possible to swim with dolphins, and trying not to get lost in the enormous maze at the Dole Plantation. There's also a huge range of hotels on the island to suit all budgets.
The second-largest Hawaiian island, Maui, is the ultimate spot for golfers - where else can you play on championship courses with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop? And children will love gasping as manta rays and sharks swim past them in the Maui Ocean Centre.
Lanai is a more serene retreat and an excellent location for honeymooners as it boasts exclusive resorts, the famous Sweetheart Rock (Puu Pehe) and beautiful beaches. For more active visitors, there are also golf courses, calm waters for snorkelling and brilliant routes for hiking.
Those who would like a serene break with plenty of swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing should head to Kauai where 50 miles of beach frame the island. Many of the stretches of sand are more secluded than on the other islands. But it's the landscape - rainforest, waterfalls and dramatic cliffs - that really wows visitors.
Other Hawaiian highlights include visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, watching a hula show and even learning the dance yourself, going whale watching and trying to spot hump backs, and going to the quiet island of Molokai where no building is taller than a coconut tree. And for the ultimate view of the islands' waterfalls, volcanoes and beaches, book a helicopter tour.
