Escape to the Hawaiian Islands and Live Aloha

Plan an unforgettable Hawaii vacation and book with AAA Travel for exclusive Member benefits.

Aloha is more than just a way to say hello and goodbye—it’s a way of life. It’s virtually impossible to define, but aloha embodies Hawaiian virtues like akahai (kindness), ohana (family), ‘olu’olu (pleasantness) and ahonui (patience, perseverance). Because Hawaii isn’t one place, but a destination where the four most visited islands each provide a distinct experience, your vacation can be anything you want it to be. And with an exclusive Member benefit of $50 in activity credit, you can do more on your Hawaii vacation. Use the credits for a variety of activities and attractions to experience these amazing islands and live aloha.

Take a snorkeling cruise and practice ‘imi ola (seek life in its highest form)—just one way to live with the spirit of Aloha.

For sheer diversity and jaw-dropping beauty, Maui is an island that lends itself to in-depth exploration. Try a sunrise trek above the clouds in Haleakala National Park, home to Maui’s highest peak rising more than 10,000 feet above the azure sea. As you watch the sunrise, show ka lā hiki ola (optimism). Take the plunge and sign up for a submarine tour. Trace the winding road to Hana, stopping to picnic, swim in the Seven Sacred Pools in Kipahulu and hike in the bamboo forest.

Oahu offers a cosmopolitan aura and an impressive array of arts and cultural options. Spend time soaking up the vibe along famous Waikiki Beach, with its endless array of boutiques and fabulous hotels. Take surfing lessons where Hawaiian royalty and legendary watermen like Duke Kahanamoku surfed. As you learn to surf, show ahonui (patience). Your surfing experience will exhilarate you from the moment you catch your first wave. Indulge in a helicopter tour and be amazed by the phenomenal scenery of the island’s hidden rainforests and lush valleys.

The Garden Island, Kauai, is known for its spectacular sea cliffs, pristine Poipu Beach Park and outdoor adventures. Start with a visit to Waimea Canyon, aptly nicknamed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific by Mark Twain. You’ll come upon another breathtaking vista on the Na Pali Coast, a 22-mile stretch of volcanic cliffs. No matter which of these activities you choose, approach them with aloha ‘aina (love and respect for the land).

On the Big Island, getting outdoors is what it’s all about. Here you can hike to Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, follow paths of wild orchids in dense rain forests, enjoy black sand beaches and bike along volcanic moonscapes. Take a sunset cruise out of Honokohua Harbor for the unforgettable sight of giant manta rays gliding beneath the surface. Or step aboard a historical dinner cruise and step back in time. A historian on board will share legends and local history on the way to Captain Cook’s Monument in Kealakekua Bay. As you take in the points of interest, appreciate ‘ike loa (the value of learning).
