Ocean Safety tips for big wave season in the pandemic

2022 roared into Hawaii under a “Kona low” weather system that darkened skies (and lit them up with lightning) and caused severe flooding in multiple areas throughout the state. For days. But sunny skies have returned, the winds have calmed, and the Aloha State is again enjoying perfect “beach weather”. This is great news for […] The post Ocean Safety tips for big wave season in the pandemic appeared first on Hawaii Aloha Travel.

Hawaii winters and how to notice them

Other than the literal, astronomical, and calendrical start of winter on December 21, it’s hard to say when a “Hawaiian winter” starts. Residents just sort of feel it. Winter is here and it feels a little late. Maybe because it’s a La Nina year, when climate patterns goose ocean surface temperatures and jiggle wind patterns.

Sunset Beach legends with lessons

The 2021-2022 Winter Season on Oahu’s North Shore has begun with the recent arrival of significant swell and favorable winds. It’s getting good, and we are thinking about how different this season will differ from those past. 2020-21 was exceedingly weird and quiet for terrible reasons.

Hawaii “shoulder season” perks

We’re in the middle of one of Hawaii tourism’s “shoulder seasons”, when demand for travel, accommodations, and tourism-adjacent businesses like restaurants and tour companies dips below peak summer and winter levels. But what does shoulder season really mean? Right now, in the middle of October, daily visitor arrivals are averaging ~20,000. Just this past August, […] The post Hawaii “shoulder season” perks appeared first on Hawaii Aloha Travel.

Why Waikiki? It's Hawaii to Da Max

Most people's image of Waikiki Beach on Oahu is summarized by a thousand words in the photo above: lot's of tender flesh elbow to jowl on a strip of artificial sand backed by square blocks of high-rise resorts, designed shops, eateries, and weirdness run amok. And that image is pretty much true. (And what's wrong with that?) But the roots of Hawaii literally run through the place, on the Waikiki Historic Trail. You can bus in from the airport and spend a vacation on foot and riding trolle...

The 'back door' to Oahu's hidden North Shore

Most people who venture out of Waikiki to see the fabled North Shore of Oahu want to see the Mt. Rushmore of pro-surfing beaches: Haleiwa, Waimea Bay, Pipeline, and Sunset Beach—and then drive back. They miss out on the wild, scenic stuff that ironically is in proximity to Turtle Bay Resort, the only resort community on the rural North Shore. Just beyond Sunset is Velzyland (above), where a renowned surfing wave on a dreamy beach has special appeal for surfers from around the globe. Large...

Hawaii's most beautiful beaches

IT’S A CHALLENGE for me to open up about cool places in Hawai’i because that’s essentially the opposite of how things are done here; you don’t give up the good spots to tourists and just lay out everything in the open. Hawai’i is one of those places where you have to take the time, respect, and energy to discover and appreciate its best secrets yourself because no one is just going to tell you. In fact, after living on Oahu for 7 years, I still don’t know where some places are and I won’t until ...

20 Things to Do in Oahu Hawaii

We spent two weeks in Hawaii visiting three of the Hawaiian Islands – Oahu, Maui and the Big Island and it’s hard to say which island we loved best. They all have their own unique personalities.

Everybody's gone surfin', at Waimea Bay

The North Shore of Oahu boasts the Mt. Rushmore of pro-surfing venues—Pipeline, Haleiwa, Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay—where real-life beach boys and girls ride unreal waves. The shore also has a few dozen other named surfing breaks. The place is Surf City, Planet Earth. When epic surf rolls in, 25-feet and up (way up) you won't see anything like Waimea Bay. Breaking surf closes out the mouth of the bay, the kind of waves that make beachcombers tremble—and make the best surfers of the worl...
