In the pages of the latest issue, readers will find grand adventures to add to their travel bucket lists as well as sentimental tales of life in Hawaiʻi. From the art of ʻoama fishing to how the first native bee arrived in the Islands, these stories dive into the natural history and unique culture of Hawaiʻi.

And of course, we have insider tips, too. In this issue, we let readers know how locals like their shave ice. Here, finely shaved ice is drenched in sugary syrups with flavors spanning every color of the rainbow. The powder-like bowl of ice is then finished with toppings and add-ons like azuki beans (sweet Japanese red beans), mochi balls, snow caps, haupia cream and li hing.
