Etiquette

Hawaiians are friendly folk, but also protective of their land and culture.

  • Kapu A 'Kapu' sign means off-limits or forbidden – respect these restrictions at all times.
  • Island time While Hawaiians are sensitive to tourist sensibilities, they tend to operate on a more casual time schedule.
  • Dress code People certainly wear sandals to business meetings, but on the flip side, they also dress up for church and a nice meal.
