There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
You'll explore and learn at Alain Despert and Bora Art Upstairs. Take a break from the city and head to Pure Snorkeling by Reef Discovery and Skydive Bora Bora. And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearls -Bora Bora, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bora Bora Turtle Centre, relax and rejuvenate at Latitude Massage Bora Bora, and see the world from above with Tahiti-Helicopters.

Kailua-Kona, United States

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 27th (Thu), get engrossed in the history at Kona Coffee Living History Farm, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, then enjoy the sand and surf at Kahaluu Beach, and finally fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Keep things going the next day: steep yourself in history at Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, explore the striking landscape of Puukohola National Historic Park, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

For reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona tour builder site.

Getting from Bora Bora to Kailua-Kona by combination of ferry and flight takes about 16.5 hours. In August, daytime highs in Kailua-Kona are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 77°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Hilo.

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sat): stop by Hilo Coffee Mill, hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Art Center Gallery, and finally hike along Sulphur Banks. On the 30th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls, then kick your exploration up a notch at Zip Line Through Paradise, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Akaka Falls State Park.

Plan my Hilo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Kailua-Kona to Hilo in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Kailua-Kona in August, plan for slightly colder nights in Hilo, with lows around 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Lahaina, United States

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Step out of the city life by going to Haleakala Crater and Ka'anapali Beach. Lahaina Galleries and Lahaina Printsellers are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Iao Valley (in Wailuku), Wailea (Wailea Beach & Makena Beach) and Kalepolepo Beach Park (in Kihei). Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. The adventure continues: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, test your problem-solving skills at Maui Escape Rooms, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, and stroll through Napili Beach.

Honolulu, United States

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and Epic Aloha. Your inner history buff will appreciate Iolani Palace and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, &more). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Waikiki Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Kuhio Beach, work some fitness into your day at Ala Moana Beach Park, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To see traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu day trip tool.
