The award-winning travel series goes interactive! Featuring over 430 listings, this practical and engaging travel app will introduce you to the many wonders of Maui, Kaua’i, Lana’i, and Moloka’i. First-time visitors to Hawaii will find everything they need to know here, and for those already familiar with the Valley Isle and the Garden Isle, we’ve pointed out plenty of lesser-known delights. Find locations on a map (even offline!), schedule a trip itinerary, share your photos, and easily locate venues nearby. Hawaii offers something for everyone. With the help of Peter Pauper’s island guide, make the most of what it has in store for you.
Author and veteran voyager Joanne Miller hand-picked every listing in the app, from small snorkeling trips and family-run B&Bs to helicopter tours and opulent resorts, spotlighting Maui and Kaua’i’s gems. No matter what your budget or where you take your joys, her reviews will steer you right.
OFFLINE MAPS. Need to navigate from a secluded beach, winding mountain road, or similarly signal-free zone? We’ve included high-res, interactive stored maps that you can access any time. Pan and zoom as you please. There’s also a fully searchable online map.
NEAR ME. Want to find out what’s nearby? Tap the Near Me button to pull up a list of the closest recommended beaches, restaurants, activities, shops, hotels, and more. You can also sort any tailored list of venues (parks and nature preserves, for example, or Asian restaurants) by distance from you.
STRAIGHT TALK. Confused by not-quite-credible, conflicting online reviews? Travel author Joanne Miller has turned her keen eye to the islands, and selected only the best for inclusion in our guide. There’s a brief description and photo of each site, so you know what to expect. And because we know travel research can strain your attention span, we’ve kept each review direct and fun.
FAVORITES. No more trying to recall the name of that unique café whose review intrigued you, or that out-of-the-way beach with prime surfing—just add them to your Favorites. Our newest optional feature notifies you when you’re near a bookmarked site.
TRIP PLANNING. Avoid missing out on your must-see list by planning your adventures in advance. Even if scheduling’s not your strong suit, the My Trip feature will help you organize your travel wishlist. Hit the Add to My Trip button on a venue page, select the timing of your visit, et voilà—instant itinerary.
SOCIALIZE. Tweet your photos of Haleakala sunrise, check in on Facebook from the top of a sea cliff, and generally let the world know you’re having a grand time. We’ve incorporated social media buttons into every listing, and even in-app camera and photo sharing functions.
ISLAND HOPPING. From Kaua’i’s majestic Na Pali Coast to Lana’i’s petroglyphs to Moloka’i’s famous Kalaupapa National Park, there are plenty of reasons not to limit your time in Hawaii to one island. We make it easier with inter-island trip advice, as well as guidance for getting around once there. We’ve recommended car rental companies, taxi companies, and even a few places that will rent you a motorcycle or Segway, if that’s your speed.
TIPS FOR TRAVELERS. Pick up a few key hints for making your way in the islands. We’ve included cheat sheets on Hawaiian vocabulary, dining etiquette, choosing a hotel (or B&B, or hostel, or campground), and other essential subjects.
TOP PICKS. Overwhelmed by a sea of options? Consult our shortlist of must-visit locales in Maui nui (greater Maui) and Kaua’i. The area’s most famous sites grace this section, but also a few less-obvious picks.
SEASONAL EVENTS. Maui and Kaua’i’s charms change with the seasons—whales and peak surfing in the winter, Lei Day in the spring, festivals all summer and fall. Check our list, and time your trip so as not to miss the transient occurrence that most strikes your fancy.
