    Big Island Sunrise. Mauna Kea Summit Hawaii

    Luggage and bags: One big suitcase for your Souvenirs you won't need much. Don't forget to tag your luggage so you don't get it mixed up a lot of us shop in the same places:)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather varies within 74-84 degrees Farenheit and humidity 64-74 percent all year long.
    Winter travelers we have snow here in Hawaii for those of you who didn't know! Nothing fancy though no ski lifts here and you drive right to the top 4WD required. This one place you can go sking and surfing in two hours.
    You won't be needing much clothes, a couple pairs of swimwear a wrap / saron.
    Some slippers also known as flip flops which you can purchase in Hawaii for a couple of bucks.
    If your planning on going hiking don't forget your hiking shoes and a compass just in case your guide doesn't know where their at LOL, just kidding.
    A light sweater, just because its Hawaii, that doen't mean its always warm everywhere you go. For those late evening walks under the stars, or if you're planning on renting a Jeep thats open you'll need it, the volcano area is the coldest on the island and a town called Waimea/Kamuela.

    My Fav Swimwear Collection: VenusSwimear.com

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't need, just go to Wal-Mart and get it. Some mosquito repellent maybe needed.
    If you want to pack a first aid kit and a roll of toilet paper, hey by all means go for it......

    Photo Equipment: HIGHLY RECOMMENED all of your equipement, I guess just what you want to carry, the extra baggage will be worth it you won't reqret it.
    How often will you have the opportunity to come to Hawaii and capture your half naked polynesian dancers LOL :)

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you love camping and outdoor activities you already know what to bring.
    But for beach stuff: 1.beach umbrella, lots of drinking water, gallon tap rinse water for those off roaders with no fresh water to rinse off in unless you don't mind being salty, obviously sunscreen and tanning lotion / oil, slippers also known as flip flops, towels, beach mat to lay on unless you just use a towel to lay on, snacks, books / magazine. LEAVE electronics in room the heat will destroy it if left under sun for long periods of time, I mean direct sunlight. I suggest waterproof cameras.

    Miscellaneous: Thanks for looking..As we'd say in Hawaii A Hui Hou (pronounciation uh-who-eee-ho ! Until we meet again!

    Oops I almost forgot: Guides, Big Island Revealed, Maui Revealed, O'ahu Revealed very detailed.
    Just dicovered another detailed guide by: Lonely Planet.

    Safe travels Aloha .....................
