We’d be ashamed of ourselves if we didn’t add a Hawaiian destination on the list! After a ton of research, we eventually landed on Heleiwa- a bustling city in the summer months that is equally as charming and exciting after all the tourists have departed.
The small town in Oahu is known for its surfing competitions which is no small wonder. As such, you’ll be transported into a bohemian paradise that has flourished with the help of both the surfer and artistic residents.
You may be wondering what else is there to do in Haleiwa? If you’re not a surf enthusiast then we recommend you visit the Wyland Galleries with their tsunami glass sculptures and murals or the Waimea Valley. Here you’ll find botanical gardens and waterfalls unlike any you’ve ever seen on the mainland.
Trust us, the long flight over the ocean is well worth it!
