Escape to the Islands: Hawai‘i in the Fall

When the summer crowds depart, it’s the best time to enjoy Hawai‘i’s many exciting and new outdoor, culinary, and cultural activities


Holo Holo Charters | Partner Content


Catch the brilliant colors of the sky along the South Maui shoreline on the new 2.5-hour Royal Sunset Sail with Alii Nui Sailing Charters. This romantic adventure offers dining in the open-air cabin or topside on the spacious deck along with a buffet and open bar. A unique farm-to-table experience awaits at O‘o Farm located in Upcountry Maui on the slopes of Haleakalā. Join the Gourmet Lunch & Farm Tour and take part in harvesting ingredients that will be used in the preparation of your outdoor meal.



Immerse yourself in all things java on Kauai Coffee Company’s new farm tour. You’ll travel down the red-dirt road of this beautiful plantation (the country’s largest coffee grower, with four million trees), learn about seed-to-cup coffee production, plant a coffee tree, and sample estate-grown coffees. The dramatic northwest Nāpali Coast is yours to explore with Holo Holo Charters on their Nāpali Snorkel Sail. Experience 3,500-foot-high soaring cliffs, valleys, waterfalls, and beaches; hear the stories and explore the underwater world of this legendary shoreline.


Hawai‘i Island

Thrills abound on the new ATV and zip line tour that KapohoKine Adventures recently created in partnership with Polaris Adventures, maker of UTVs and ATVs. Get set for off-road fun along six miles of trails featuring waterfalls, muddy hills, and verdant fields, plus an eight-mile zip line course offering side-by-side zip-lining. Looking for a quick round of golf? Mauna Lani Golf’s Wikiwiki Course is ideal for Kohala Coast golfers looking to play a round in about one hour. Wikiwiki means “fast” in Hawaiian and this nine-hole course was designed with speed in mind.

KapohoKine Adventures



Discover off-the-beaten-path West O‘ahu with Hawaii Forest & Trail on their new Farm to Forest Experience. You’ll visit Ma‘o Organic Farm and enjoy a hands-on experience working in the community garden and making a salad dressing loaded with healthy ingredients. The adventure continues with lunch and hiking on private lands in the forested mountain heights of Palehua. This fall, don’t miss Honolulu Museum of Art’s Contemporary Landscapes: Li Huayi (through January 5, 2020), a major exhibit of Chinese ink painting.


Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival

Sip, savor, and repeat. The ninth annual Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival celebrates the rich bounty of Hawai‘i’s farms and seas with over 100 world-class chefs, 40 winemakers, and 25 mixologists.

Hawai‘i Island: Oct. 5; Maui: Oct. 18–20; O‘ahu: Oct. 23–27
