Loco Moco

A trip to Hawaii wouldn’t be complete without at least one meal of loco moco, a plate of burgers atop a pile of fluffy rice, hidden beneath a fried egg and lashings of gravy. It may not look the prettiest, but the proof is in the eating. In case you were wondering…

Ahi poke

Another local favourite is ahi poke, a raw salad of diced sashimi-grade tuna, marinated in a mixture of sea salt, soy sauce, inamona and sesame oil. It’s mostly served in lettuce cups, with chillies and spring onions as a garnish. Delicious and nutritious. Did you know that…

Spam Musubi

More Spam is consumed per capita in Hawaii than anywhere else in the US. Fact. A particularly tasty local snack is Spam musubi, which consists of a slab of Spam atop sushi rice, wrapped in nori (seaweed). We promise it’s nicer than it sounds. Try it for breakfast. Bet you didn’t know that…

Incredible Surf!

Route 340

Most people head to Maui for the incredible surf this windswept island has to offer. For the adventurous driver, though, take a spin down the Route 340, which follows the route of an ancient footpath, through steep ravines and along a wild coastline, affording unparalleled views.

Hawaii Volcanoes
National Park

A visit to the Big Island is like taking a step back in time, particularly if you drive the Hawaii Belt Road. Witness raw creation itself at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where active volcanoes are constantly spewing out lava and clouds of sulphurous smoke.


Known as the ‘friendly island’ (which isn’t to say they’re not all friendly), Molokai is much less frequented by tourists than some of the other islands, giving you a unique sense of the real Hawaii. The pace of life here is slow, so you can’t help but relax. It’s also the home of hula.
