When you’re on vacation in the beautiful island of Hawaii, you’ll surely be more relaxed and go to sleep early and also wake up early. In case you were wondering what kinds of things there are to do in the morning in Hawaii, here is a list of 5 morning activities.
1. Hawaiian Breakfast
Hawaiian pancakes are very popular in Japan and for good reason. There are many amazing breakfast joints in Hawaii where you can sit and enjoy the delicious meal or get take out and enjoy it on the beach with the sound of the crashing waves.
Here are some top ranked restaurants picked by H.I.S.’s SNS followers:
Boots and Kimo’s Homestyle Kitchen
There is often a line of people waiting to try their signature Macadamia nut sauce covered pancakes. Without being too sweet, these fluffy pancakes will be sure to satiate your morning appetite.

Located on the second floor of the Royal Hawaiian Center is this cafe specializing in Kona coffee. They also have acai bowls on offer. Have you ever heard of the super food acai berries? They are super rich in antioxidants and have numerous other health benefits. An acai bowl is made up of a bowl of creamy acai berry smoothie topped with fruits, granola and other toppings. These make an amazing healthy, refreshing and filling breakfast, perfect for starting your day of surfing or just general beach fun.

Hau Tree Lanai Restaurant, The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel
This restaurant located on the first floor of The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel is famous for their Eggs Benedict. Nothing like a delicious plate of Eggs Benedict at a nice hotel to nail home that you are enjoying yourself on vacation.

2. Reading the newspaper
At first glance, reading the newspaper does not sound that fun does it. However, picture yourself in the lobby of a gorgeous resort, fresh mug of coffee in hand and opening the days newspaper. In our technology ridden busy lives, fewer and fewer people are actually reading physical newspapers and just getting news on their smart phones. Actually taking the time to physically read the paper while enjoying the views will be a peaceful and relaxing way to start the day.
3. Beach Yoga
There’s nothing like yoga to stretch your sore muscles and relax the body and mind. Do it on a beach in Hawaii and I guarantee the effects will be even better. With the cool morning breeze and the gentle sound of the waves, your body and mind will be sure to become refreshed and ready to take on anything you want. Especially if you live somewhere far away from the ocean, be sure to take this opportunity to become one with nature and the waves.

4. Morning jog/walk
Hawaii is full of beautiful parks and beaches to take a nice morning jog or stroll. Enjoy the cool breeze and get your heart pumping to start the day right. Since Hawaii has so much delicious food, you may find yourself eating a bit more than normal. What better way to burn off those extra calories than an early morning run?
5. Climb Diamond Head Mountain
Diamond Head is an iconic symbol of Waikiki. Since the sun can be quite strong between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, I recommend climbing it in the morning! You can reach the top in just one hour and the panoramic view is truly spectacular. A delicious Hawaiian breakfast will taste extra delicious after a nice hike.
So, that concluded my list of 5 morning activities in Hawaii. I hope this inspires you to take advantage of every moment when you’re on this wonderful island.
