If you are searching for sun, fun and beautiful scenery for your next vacation, it’s hard to beat Hawaii.
Whether it’s great weather, numerous sandy beaches or popular outdoor activities such as swimming, surfing or luaus, it’s not surprising that a trip to Hawaii is on most people’s bucket list.
Of all the Hawaiian islands, Oahu is the most populated and also the most popular with tourists. In 2018, over 9.9 million people visited Hawaii with 5.9 million choosing Oahu (Maui was next at 2.9 million).
One of our Sun Vixen ambassadors just returned from a vacation in Honolulu and highlighted a series of swimwear and accessories that we offer that would be ideal for a future trip.
From iconic Waikiki Beach (pictured above) to the North Shore, there are plenty of options when it comes to beaches. It all depends on where you’re staying and whether you are looking to mix a day at the beach with shopping (Waikiki is your best bet) or somewhere quieter such as Lanikai Beach, which ranked 23rd on Flightnetwork’s list of best beaches in the world in 2018.
Agua Bendita’s One Piece Tina Reversible swimsuit is also a solid choice if you are looking to widen your wardrobe options to stretch the length of your trip while saving on pesky baggage fees.
Following a day at the beach – or when the tradewinds pick up – beach cover ups such as the Wild Orchid Ashlyn Dress or Naya Dress are great options and ideal for attending a luau or watching one of the many free performances that are held at venues such as the Royal Hawaiian Center (pictured) or Kuhio Beach. A pair of Lanai Sassy Shorts packaged a T-shirt or hoodie can also adjust your look while meshing with the casual local vibe.
Another entertainment option worth investigating: The Blue Note Hawaii. Opened in January 2016, it offers live shows by local performers such as Henry Kapono, Jake Shimabukuro and Raiatea while stars such as Kenny G, Dionne Warwick and Vanessa Williams have also appeared as special guests.
The sun in Hawaii can be intense so along with sunscreen, a pair of shades – such as our Classic Black or Gold and Tortoise sunglasses – are essential. Combine them with a Josie Hat to enjoy your day at the beach while remaining comfortable and safe.
