Hawaii HolidaysHawaii is an archipelago of eight major islands in the North Pacific. It is the most remote island chain in the world located 2,390 miles from California and 3,850 miles from Japan. Holidays to Hawaii offer a year-round warm, subtropical climate; friendly, genuine people; fascinating culture; some of world's most wondrous scenery and of course, those famous beaches. The following video, by our very own Theresa, was filmed after her first visit to Hawaii. P.S. she's still talking about how amazing it was!
To put it in perspective, the flying distance to Hawaii is roughly equivalent to two transatlantic flights, so you really need to make the most of your holiday and see as much as possible. Many of our partner airlines offer free mainland USA stopovers en route to Hawaii making it even easier to incorporate places like San Francisco or Los Angeles. Your Bon Voyage travel consultant will discuss all available options, so you make the right decision based on exactly what you want to experience.
Each Hawaiian island has its own unique characteristics, and once you're there, it’s easy and affordable to island-hop. Again, we'll guide you every step of the way, but this will give you a snapshot of each of the islands........
Oahu is the busiest Hawaiian island and home to Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii. Oahu seamlessly combines city life with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Honolulu is simply buzzing and you’ll want to add Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head to your must-do list.
An hour's drive out of the city you'll find North Shore. Sleepy and more traditional, this area is also home to some of the legendary surfing beaches in Hawaii which must be seen to be believed. Three nights would be the recommended minimum to take in the highlights of this 50th state capital.
MauiMaui 's serene and lush landscape makes it ideal for honeymooners. There's no surprise this island has been voted the best in the world for the past 20 years. Ka'anapali Beach, the Road to Hana, sunrise at Haleakala Crater and the list well and truly goes on. You can easily spend a week here soaking up the Aloha spirit.
Hawaii IslandHawaii Island, sometimes referred to as "Big Island" , is a pre-historic gem. You will be amazed at the molten landscape that dominates the terrain across the island. We have to insist you visit Volcanoes National Park. Imagine being up close to Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world! Of all the islands, Big Island is the most geographically diverse with climates ranging from dry, coastal to snow-capped mountains.
Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano and highest point in the state of Hawaii, offers the most incredible stargazing. The Kona coast, settled over a thousand years ago, is full of archaeological sites and the place where Captain James Cook died.
KauaiKauai, nicknamed the Garden Isle, is known for its tropical rain forest and soaring cliffs which have been the backdrop for many Hollywood movies. Hikers will be in their element here and all who visit are enchanted. As well as hiking, you can enjoy horse riding, kayaking and breathtaking helicopter rides.
Molokai and Lanai
Molokai is unspoilt, authentic Hawaii. Visit the town of Kaunakakai and step back in time, perfect for switching off and immersing yourself in the Hawaiian way of life. Soak up the sunshine on Papohaku beach, one of the largest white sand beaches in Hawaii.
The island of Lanai doesn’t have a single traffic light and feels more like northern Wisconsin than Hawaii! With a fascinating history and uncrowded beaches, Lanai is virtually untouched. Take a day trip or escape for longer.
Hawaii cruising......Un-Cruise Adventures is ideal for the traveller seeking something off the beaten path. Smaller ships go where the big ships can't and fewer people on board ensures a more intimate experience. If you want to become one with your surroundings and properly soak up the native culture, Un-cruise is the choice.
Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America is Hawaii's only dedicated, year round cruise ship. With NCL's Premium All Inclusive, launched in 2017, alcohol and gratuities are now included as standard. That means Hawaii now has an all inclusive option for the first time. NCL's Freestyle Dining means you can eat where and when you want with no dress codes. Cruising is an ideal way to immerse yourself in a destination whilst having the comfort and security of a floating base. If you weren't sure about cruising, NCL's 'no rules' approach is refreshing and definitely worth considering.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
