Hawaii: America’s Gay Travel Destination

Author: , October 31st, 2010

Gay HawaiiHawaiians boast a proud history, a line of mighty monarchs (some of whom openly had aikane or same-sex favorites), and an unshakable belief in the heartwarming concept of aloha, which signifies hello or goodbye but which also connotes love, peace, and compassion (among many other meanings).

The United States illegally overthrew and annexed the sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii by the early 1900s. By 1959, Hawaii became our 50th state. Despite the historically tumultuous relationship between the islands and the mainland, Hawaii offers unconditional aloha to residents of the other 49 states, welcoming visitors year-round, according an especially warm special welcome to LGBT travelers who’ll find gay and gay-friendly accommodations, restaurants, attractions and events dotting the eight primary islands of the group.

There are a lot of ways to enjoy Hawaii from the urbane (Honolulu has almost a million inhabitants) with a wide range of lodging options, a restaurant scene finally embracing the farm-to-table movement, and shopping rivaling Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive; to the adventurous and sporty (stand-up paddleboard, anyone?); to the remote, with off-the-grid slices of paradise just begging to be explored.

Gay Friendly Volcano, Hawaii Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Volcano Village Lodge - Volcano, Big Island, HawaiiWe created the lodges for people who want more out of life than a whirlwind tour of the island. You may stroll through our lush garden trails, brushing against the giant fern leaves, look up at the native ohia trees, and be delighted by the wild and delicate orchids on the trees.

Your stay at Volcano Village Lodge offers a unique blend of Hawaiian history. Volcano Village is part of the sacred lands of Ola’a, first settled by the Kahuna (priests) of the Volcano Goddess Pele. The area was then kapu (forbidden) except to royalty. Now, you are our royalty. The village is a “World Heritage Site,” protected habitats for rare and endangered species as well as unique biological and geological evolutions having universal significance to all humanity. You will be our privileged guests to witness these wonders.

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution — processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture. The park encompasses diverse environments that range from sea level to the summit of the earth’s most massive volcano, Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet. Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano, offers scientists and visitors alike insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.
