Overview

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Hawaii Off the Beaten Path show you the Aloha State you never knew existed. Pay respect to the 700-pound crystal shivalingam and experience a daily puja (purification ritual) at Kauai’s Hindu Monastery. Hike through the natural splendor of Waipio Valley to reach Hiilawe Falls. Dropping more than 1,200 feet in free fall, the waters of Hiilawe make the longest unbroken descent in Hawaii. Follow Jack London’s trail on Kalae Stables’ “world-famous Molokài mule ride” to Kalaupapa Peninsula. Or dine on a “plate lunch,” the quintessential meal of Hilo, at Cafe 100, the city’s first drive-in. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
