We've published many sunset photos over the years, but this is the first moonset photo from Hawaii. Happy Aloha Friday y'all!
Visitors and locals of Hawaii love taking sunset photos, but it’s rare to see a moonset photo. Mahalo to Dave Newbold for sharing this unique photo of the moon setting. Dave took this photo from Kailua-Kona on Hawaii, the Big Island on March 5th. Happy Aloha Friday! Share

One way to impress your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, is to wish them ‘happy Valentine’s Day’ in the Hawaiian language. As you might imagine, February 14th wasn’t traditionally celebrated as Valentine’s Day in ancient Hawaiian culture. So, there is no specific Hawaiian word for...

Satellite view of Oahu via Google Maps I’ve been writing about Hawaii travel since 2006 and I’ve heard almost every misconception about Hawaii that’s out there. A common one that I often hear about Oahu is that it’s over developed, touristy and too citylike. If Oahu was only Waikiki and...
