"Ka'anapali Beach is the best. It has clean sand and waves that aren't too big. I don't need a 40-foot wave to go bodysurfing, although I'm a big boy. This beach seems to appeal to everyone. It's wide enough so that you can throw a Frisbee or football. It's great for families, great for couples, great for singles. At the end of Ka'anapali Beach is Black Rock, a natural cove where they dive off the cliffs every day at sunset. If you snorkel 50 feet out, you'll see everything from huge turtles to the most colorful fish ever, like the humuhumunukunukuapua'a, the state fish of Hawaii. At 7 years old, my kids could pronounce it."
"A helicopter ride over Maui is a must. You'll see the Iao Needle, which is spectacular, with waterfalls and the thinnest pointed mountain in the world. You'll go over Lahaina and out to Hana and Kipahulu, where [Charles] Lindbergh's grave is located. You'll see the Pools of Oheo Gulch and the winding roads and the beautiful countryside. Then, you'll go up and around the Haleakala crater. That's an unbelievable vista. Haleakala is a combination of colors when the sun hits it. It's a pretty big crater and you're just happy that it's not active."
