All the things to do and see in Hawaii besides Waikiki Beach
Any good holiday begins with some research and a list of what there is to see and do, and when it comes to Hawaii, that list is longer than most. From the world class surfing beaches to the lush jungle and mountainous interior, not to mention the fact there’s actually 8 islands which many people don't even realise. Making a list for all the things to see and do will have you feeling slightly overwhelmed at all the activities you probably won’t get around to. So I could list out the 10 must not miss things to do around the more tourist centric areas like many other lists, or I could throw down the activities in Oahu and Maui that are going to give you the best stories to take back home….which would you rather?
