Poipu, Kauai

Poipu ©
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Poipu: Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Polihale State Park). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Poipu Beach Park, whizz through the canopy at Kauai Backcountry Adventures, see Kipu Ranch Adventures, and take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn.

For maps, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Poipu trip itinerary builder.

Los Angeles to Poipu is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Poipu. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Los Angeles in April since evenings lows in Poipu dip to 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona ©
Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 29th (Thu), experience rural life at Heavenly Hawaiian Kona Coffee Farm, fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then kick your exploration up a notch at Hawaii Forest and Trail.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona travel route builder.

You can fly from Poipu to Kailua-Kona in 3 hours. Expect a daytime high around 83°F in April, and nighttime lows around 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Explore Lahaina's surroundings by going to Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park), Maui Pineapple Tours (in Makawao) and Kalepolepo Beach Park (in Kihei). Spend the 1st (Sat) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach, immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Lahaina online tour planner.

Traveling by flight from Kailua-Kona to Lahaina takes 4.5 hours. In April, daytime highs in Lahaina are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Honolulu online tour itinerary planner.

You can fly from Lahaina to Honolulu in 3.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 84°F in May, and nighttime lows around 71°F. On the 10th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
