The main gateway to the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu is a modern cosmopolitan city with a unique blend of cultures and cuisines, energetic arts and nightlife scenes, a historic district which boasts the USs only royal palace, and a variety of great shops. It is surrounded by some of the world’s most spectacular coastal cliffs and epic forest trails offering breathtaking views of enchanted bays and beyond. Yet Honolulu’s biggest draw is undoubtedly its beaches — from Waikiki, the ever-bustling surfers paradise on Oahus southeastern shore, to the hundreds of near-deserted coves where your sundowner companions could be a family of sea turtles.

Malama (care for) Hawaii with us. In an effort to inspire mindful travel, industry partners and volunteer organizations across the Hawaiian Islands have come together with an initiative that encourages visitors to give back to the destination. Volunteer projects range from reforestation and tree planting to self-directed beach cleanups, ocean reef preservation and even creating Hawaiian quilts for our kupuna (elders). By making a positive impact, you’ll have a more enriching travel experience and can even enjoy a free extra night from participating hotels.

Travel deeper and take a trip that gives back—to Hawaii and to you. For more information and for a list of participating partners, visit While you're there, don't forget to participate in the Hawaii Safe Travels Program.
