    Packing List

    by mysie Written Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Just pack lightly! And pack shorts in your carry-on to change into once you reach the islands: the airport isn't air-conditioned, and you exit the plane on the HOT black tarmac!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light, short-sleeved shirts and lots of shorts. A good pair of walking shoes. One semi-formal outfit if you plan on having a meal at a hotel restaurant.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: All such items can be purchased in town for reasonable prices, just watch out for hotel quickie-mart pricing!

    Photo Equipment: A camera is a must. From the surf to the wildlife to the sunsets, you'll want to capture it all. And splurge on one under-water camera when you go snorkeling: even with some of the shots blurry, many will turn out better than expected, and it's worth it for the memories!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Haven't been camping in Hawaii since I was a girl, but there are all sorts of nasty critters on the beaches at night: rats, scorpions, and centipedes. Always have good boots if your trekking off the beaten-path. The Big Island is mostly sharp lava rock!

    Miscellaneous: One word: SUNSCREEN!!!

    Luggage and bags: If I did this trip again, I would bring '1 empty case' and a pair of shorts & t'top.... In this case, 'Less is definitely, More' .... ;-)

    Photo Equipment: The Camera... Film you can buy here for a good price.
