Hawaii’s nighttime attractions
If you travel all the way to Hawaii, “don’t end your day once the sun goes down,” said Valerie Stimac in the San Francisco Chronicle. On the main islands, there’s a lot to do after dark, including moonlit walks to Oahu’s Waimea Falls or stargazing from atop Maui’s largest volcano (mauistargazing.com). Families visiting Honolulu should see the Kailua Night Market, a Hawaiian interpretation of an Asian night market. Staying on the beach? Starlit strolls along the sand might also be illuminated by bioluminescent plankton, which thrive in local waters. Nocturnal travelers can also snorkel alongside Pacific manta rays, which flock to an LED-lit feeding area off the Big Island’s western coast, said Stacey McKenna in OutsideOnline.com. The massive fish, which can reach 21 feet wide, are sung about in a Hawaiian creation chant. With Anelakai Adventures, you can canoe to the site with a guide who shares stories about the island’s ancient ways.
