What are Hawaii’s most easily recognized landmarks from above?
The Hawaiian Islands are home to countless natural landmarks that are easy to identify from the air, but Oahu’s Diamond Head Crater, Kauai’s Na Pali Coast, and Maui’s Haleakala Crater are three of the most famous. If you’ve never experienced the beauty of these destinations, add them to your Hawaii bucket list immediately.
How can you experience Hawaii from above?
While we love looking at aerial photographs of Hawaii, there’s nothing better than experiencing the beauty of the Aloha State from above for ourselves. Of course, you’ll see the islands from this perspective when flying to or between the islands, but there’s little better than a helicopter tour. One of our all-time favorites is the journey that leads you to Manawaiopuna Falls, more commonly known as Jurassic Falls — after its famous appearance in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic, Jurassic Park. For a simple adventure, why not go parasailing off the coast of Waikiki?
What is the tallest place in Hawaii?
The highest point in the entire Aloha State is Mauna Kea, which measures in at 13,796 feet above sea level. When measured from its oceanic base deep in the vast Pacific, however, the mountain measures in at more than 33,000 feet tall — higher than Mount Everest! The summit area of Mauna Kea is unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere across the Hawaiian Islands, and you’ll want to visit for yourself.
