The Best Easy Hikes
Many who visit Hawaii are not avid hikers. Numerous trails are great for beginners to get out and take in the natural beauty of the island. The Diamond Head hike is a favorite due to its breathtaking views and easy-to-navigate trails. Many other paths, such as Manoa Falls, Pali Twin Falls, and Hanauma Bay Trail offer beautiful water views. Whether it’s waterfalls or views of the ocean, these hikes are sure to make any sea lover swoon.

For The Intermediate Hiker
If you love hiking but are not interested in extremely difficult trails, there are a large number of intermediate trails that would be perfect. Many of these trails will take you through a bit of wilderness to hidden gems that you can only reach by foot. Waterfalls, pools, and caves are waiting for you to discover them without too many dangerous terrains or challenging climbs.
Taking It To The Extreme
Test your skills and stamina with hikes to the tops of beautiful summits and through harsh jungle trails. Pali To K1 is a perfect example of a trek that offers heart-stopping climbing opportunities, as well as challenging hiking terrain. One of the most exciting and hazardous hikes is the Kalihi Saddle. Make your way over an eroding, basalt ridge line and through overgrown areas to the top. Trails such as these are not for the faint at heart and require advance knowledge in climbing and hiking as well as the appropriate gear. Be aware of the trails that you are hiking as some may be labeled as illegal treks and stay aware of the difficulty of each trail you consider traversing.
The best way to take in the most beautiful areas of the island is with a hike. Whether it is a beginner hike along the shore or an advanced hike to the summit of one of our gorgeous mountains, it is well worth the trip. Stay with us at Marina Hawaii Vacations in Honolulu, Hawaii, for a comfortable place to return to and relax after a day of hiking.
