Planning a family vacation that will tick all the boxes for kids and adults alike can be sometime be a little tricky. With kids of different ages and adults with mixed interests it’s not easy to find a place that is going to keep each family member happy. Well, we believe we have found the perfect family vacation destination: Hawaii.
This amazing place truly has something for everyone and is guaranteed to offer both kids and family the vacation of a lifetime. Here are all the top activities that will have your family wanting to come back year after year.
Sea, Sun and Surf
Of course, one of the main attractions of Hawaii is the sunny weather, beautiful beaches and the turquoise sea. But just lounging around on the beach is not everyone’s cup of tea and kids tend to get bored easily. So why not sign them up to a surf school? Resorts like, Maalaea Surf Resort in Maui, situated directly on the beach, means parents can spend the day relaxing by the pool, whilst the kids try their hand at a bit of surfing.
Hawaii is famous for many things and whale watching is certainly at the top of the list. Being able to watch these majestic mammals is one of the most magical sights anyone can experience, at any age. Going on a boat trip is a great way to try and catch a glimpse or even just keeping your eyes peeled from the beach or your hotel balcony.
There are some great family sport centers in Maui that promise to keep the kids happy. Places like Maui Golf & Sports Centre are a great way to let your kids blow off some steam. They offer a wide variety of sports and activities such as rock climbing, bungee trampolining, bumper boats and mini-golf.
Hawaii offers some of the World’s best trekking routes and most breath-taking views. The national park, Haleakala, offers stunning walks that you can enjoy as a family, where you can take in the sights of the island, whilst also visiting the Haleakala volcano and the endangered Hawaiian geese.
Why not try your hand at a little canoeing? This activity is a great way to spend time as a family and see the island from a totally different perspective. Take your snorkels and dive in to see the beautiful sea turtles and tropical fish.
Maui Ocean Centre
Spend an afternoon with your family at the Maui Ocean Centre. Not only can you see everything from hammerhead and tiger sharks, octopus and a wide variety of weird and wonderful deep water fish, but the staff are also fantastic with children and spend time with families talking them through the sea life and also educating them about the Hawaiian culture.
This is an all round family favourite and an experience you and your kids will never forget. Recently features on National Geographic, the Atlantis submarine tour takes you on a journey 100 foot deep into the ocean. Travel deep into the pacific ocean and take in the wonder that is Hawaii’s underwater world.
