Poipu, Kauai

— 3 nights
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail and Polihale State Park. Escape the urban bustle at Shipwreck Beach and Queen's Bath. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Hanakapiai Falls, admire the natural beauty at National Tropical Botanical Garden, tour the pleasant surroundings at Secret Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Baby Beach.

Plan trip to Poipu with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Philadelphia to Poipu is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Philadelphia to Poipu due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Philadelphia in February: high temperatures in Poipu hover around 78°F and lows are around 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

— 4 nights

Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Get in touch with nature at Pololu Valley Lookout and Waipio Valley. Discover out-of-the-way places like Kealakekua Bay and Hulihe'e Palace. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae) and The Captain Cook Monument (in Captain Cook). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Michael the Archangel Church, hike along Maka’ula ‘O’oma Tract, and explore the activities along Kiholo Bay.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

— 3 nights
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kīlauea and Sulphur Banks. Visiting Richardson Beach Park and Carlsmith Beach Park will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Volcano: Holei Sea Arch (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) and Hilo (Scuba & Snorkeling & Liliuokalani Gardens). The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, learn about winemaking at Volcano Winery, hike along Mauna Loa, and Head underground at Kazumura Cave Tours.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
