What to Pack for Adventure
If you are the adventurous type and want to see all that Hawaii has to offer you will want to pack accordingly. Having a wide assortment of items that can take you from hiking up to the top of the Koolau mountain range to kayaking down to the mokes will help you to be prepared for all that Hawaii has to offer. T-shirts and tank tops are always good options for Hawaii as the weather is always warm. Other accessories like towels, pareos, and hats are a must to give you some protection from the sun and can be used in multiple situations. Here are a few outfit ideas and suggestions on what you should pack for your next Hawaii adventure.
For a breathtaking view try the Lanikai pillbox hike. It is a short 75-minute hike round trip but if you just want to get to the first pillbox it will only take about 25 minutes. The pay-off at the end is a spectacular view of the beach and the horizon. The hike can be a little dangerous so make sure to wear good shoes and bring water. It is usually not too crowded but get there early for best results.
Acai bowls may not have been created in Hawaii but they were definitely perfected here. Made from an acai fruit base, topped with sliced fruit, and served with granola and honey, it makes a refreshing snack after a long hike or day at the beach. You can find them at many places around the islands but we recommend Lanikai Juice. They have a few different variations to suit your taste but try the works if you don’t know what to get. Definitely a must try when in Hawaii.
