Malama aina: Oahu

As soon as you arrive in Oahu, you’ll begin to feel it. Malama aina, or taking care of the ocean and land, is at the center of Hawaiian life. It’s not something we teach, but just something you experience. From food to family, the ocean and land is what gathers us.

Malama aina: Kauai

Malama aina is our priority. We honor prior generations and all they have sacrificed for Hawaii to be sustainable by passing it on to the next generation, building community. Come see how we care for the land and ocean here across the island of Kauai.

Where the land speaks: Island of Hawaii

Explore Pololu Valley, Anna Ranch, and the black sand beach of Pohoiki. Swim across Kealakekua Bay, paddle across Kailua Bay, and surf Kahaluu Beach Park. Even just enjoying beers at Big Island Brewhaus or food at Magics Beach Grill, you can feel the aloha spirit revitalizing your soul.
