It’s a brand new year again. That means it’s time to reflect on 2019 and some of the writings posted to the Polynesian Hostel blog. We want to thank our readers once again for sharing our posts with your friends and family. The following posts are the ones that ranked the highest among social sharing this past year.
#5 Makapuu and More
We start our list in reverse order, coming in at #5 is “Makapuu and More.” This post explores not only the famous lighthouse trail but also the area around it. There are lots to explore around Makapuu. Find the hidden trails that take you down to the tide pools. Go climb on top of Pele’s Chair. Check out the views of Rabbit Island and Black Rock. And don’t forget about the secluded beach of Alan Davis nearby if you want to cool off after your hike. All the details are in the post. Go check it out.
#4 Polynesian Hostel from Check-in to Check-out
Next up at #4 is “Polynesian Hostel from Check-in to Check-out.” So you’re planning a trip to Hawaii and you’re booked with us at Polynesian Hostel? Great! We take you through exactly what you’ll expect once you arrive. Some things this post covers: shuttles to the hostel, requirements at check-in, our many services we offer, freebies too, check out times, transportation back to the airport, and much more. It’s all right here.
#3 Summer Nights on Waikiki Beach
A post written in the summer of 2019, “Summer Nights on Waikiki Beach” takes the #3 spot. Waikiki is the most famous beach in all of Hawaii. And the summer months receive a record number of visitors every year. You can always find something to entertain yourself: hula shows, Hawaiian music, fireworks, and even special movie nights on the beach. Some of the details on this post are only specific to 2019, but most of the information remains accurate from year to year.
#2 Island Hopping Hawaii
Coming in at #2 is “Island Hopping Hawaii.” So you want to visit the other islands while you’re here? Great! There are lots to see and do, no matter which island your on. This is a great post because it goes into detail on how to get to other islands and also which islands are best to visit.
#1 Manoa Falls Hiking Trail
And finally, we come to the #1 post that was shared the most times in 2019: “Manoa Falls Hiking Trail.” This trail is something a lot of people want to hike when coming to Hawaii. It’s more of a jungle-type hike with banyan trees, wild chickens running freely, and a towering waterfall from 150 feet above. The post gives you specific directions on how to get there and additional tips for the hike that might be useful.
(UPDATE ON MANOA FALLS SINCE THE ORIGINAL POSTING: The Manoa Falls Trail is now closed Monday through Thursday. It is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and all major holidays. Check their website here for up-to-date information.)
