From stunning rainforests, ancient volcanos and crystal waters to abundant wildlife, delicacies and adventures, Hawaii has it all.
A brilliant option for private jet charter passengers into Hawaii is to charter a helicopter for an aerial tour of Maui island. Experience a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking waterfalls of Hana or the world-famous Haleakala national park.
If you’re more of a seafarer, why not charter a yacht to experience the island’s pristine waters, swim with turtles and explore the secrets Maui’s coast has to offer? Many local yacht charter companies will also help organize onboard chefs if you’d like to experience the local delicacies.
Private jet charter passengers can travel directly into Kahului Airport (PHOG/OGG), which can accommodate all types of private jets.
Maui boasts some world-class accommodation, and finding a hotel to suit your travel requirements won’t be difficult.

A short hop away, Hawaii’s “Big Island” has endless reasons to visit. Here is a quick list of some of our favorites:
• Kilauea Volcano, the crown jewel of the Big Island’s Volcanoes National Park – Visit this UNESCO World Heritage and witness an active volcano formed around 250,000 years ago. Local tour operators will ensure you have a safe and memorable visit, viewing steam vents and active lava flows.
• The Kona coast – enjoy a sunset cruise along this fantastic coastline that stretches two-thirds along the western coast of Hawaii. Steeped in history, the Kona coast is home to stunning beaches, coffee plantations and plenty of marine life.
• Stargaze atop Mauna Kea. Widely regarding one of the world’s best spots for astronomy, Mauna Kea offers once-in-a-lifetime views of the Milky Way and closer planetary bodies. Be sure to wrap up, though, as it can get quite cold.
A short helicopter charter from Hawaii’s Big Island lies Oahu, home to the capital city, Honolulu. Here the list of world-class hotels and eateries continues – from Roy’s Waikiki to Merrimen’s. For a splash of culture, we recommend visiting the Polynesian Visitor Centre for an Ali’i Luau.
Oahu Island Honolulu Intl Airport (HNL) is the most popular entry point for private jet passengers into Hawaii and its islands.
The Caribbean islands need no introduction. With their pristine beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and warm tropical climate, these islands offer a perfect retreat for relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether you’re looking for adventure or a place to unwind, the Caribbean islands offer a unique blend of natural phenomenon, cultural richness, and laid-back island charm that keep people returning year after year. Below is our quick list of things to do when visiting the Caribbean.
This Caribbean gem is home to turquoise seas edged in soft white sand. Gentle trade winds cool the island while visitors enjoy its nearly 300 days of sun per year.
Well-connected for private jet travelers, Aruba is a vibrant hotspot of shopping, culture, food, sport and adventure. Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA) is Aruba’s most popular airport for private jets.
As Aruba attracts millions of tourists annually, we recommend hiring a private beach cabana to elevate your beach experience. Here you can ensure privacy and comfort while enjoying some of the world’s best bathing spots.
With over 2,000 beaches, the Caribbean’s highest mountain ranges, world-class golf courses, and a vibrant, diverse culture, the DR is a must-visit for luxury travelers to the Caribbean. Below are a few of our favorite things to do.
Take a private helicopter tour and explore the panoramic beauty of the Dominican Republic, including the lush topography of Samaná, the cascading waterfalls of Damajagua, or the historic city of Santo Domingo.
If you want to stay closer to the ground (or the sea), we recommend chartering a private catamaran to explore the secluded Soana Island – here you’ll find some of the best snorkelling in the Caribbean.
Those looking to include a round of golf will not be disappointed. We highly recommend visiting the Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo.
The Dominican Republic is extremely well connected for private jet visitors, with airports dotted nationwide.
With its dramatic volcanic mountains, “The Pitons”, and its culinary delights, St Lucia is a dream location for private jet passengers near and far.
St Lucia is served by George F. L Charles Airport (SLU).
When visiting St Lucia, we highly recommend chartering a helicopter for an unparalleled view of The Pitons. The Pitons are a pair of volcanic spires synonymous with St Lucian imagery. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004, The Pitons are awe-inspiring.
A visit to St Lucia wouldn’t be complete without a private rum tasting. We recommend speaking with a local concierge or tour operator to book a private tasting session – you won’t be disappointed. The capital, Castries, is home to many luxury tour companies, and your ACC Aviation air charter account manager would be happy to assist.
For the adventurous type, St Lucia offers fantastic hiking opportunities – visit hidden waterfalls, traverse dense rainforests, enjoy fresh mangoes directly from the tree, and swim in its unspoiled natural watering holes.
For the less adventurous type, we recommend visiting the Sulphur Springs – a volcanic spa that’s out of this world.
St Lucia is served by George F. L Charles Airport (SLU).
With over 300 breathtakingly diverse islands, Fiji is a private jet traveler’s dream. Whether you’re looking for a paradise island getaway, a place for family, food, couples, cruising, sailing, sustainability or a bit of everything, Fiji is the place to be.
With so many islands come some brilliant hotel opportunities. We recommend the Royal Davui – a unique adults-only private island getaway. The spacious Taveuni Palms Resort is perfect for families with seven live-in staff, a personal chef and room for even the largest family.
Nadi International Airport (NAN) is Fiji’s main international airport and is open to private jets.
Those seeking a culinary adventure will be delighted here. Fiji offers some of the world’s most forward-thinking restaurants and eateries. Private jet visitors to Fiji ought to check out the Kokomo Private Island – with its 2.2 ha of organic farms, beehives, hydroponically-grown produce, and free-ranging hens. Kokomo’s farm-to-table concept is unparalleled.
For the spa-goer, Fiji offers some brilliant options. We highly recommend taking a seaplane flight to Turtle Island and visiting their world-renowned spa. In addition to its spa retreat, Turtle Island provides a cacophony of excursions and experiences – perfect for any luxury traveler.
The Sunshine State offers a year-round holiday atmosphere and truly has something for everyone. The most visited state in the US, Florida is home to world-class attractions, theme parks, golf courses, vibrant cities, glorious coastlines, national parks, and celebrations of culture.
Those visiting Florida by private jet will be pleased with its broad options for executive airports. Whether you’re flying into Orlando Executive Airport (ORL) for the parks or Miami Executive Airport (TMB) for quick access to the heart of downtown Miami, or one of the many others, you will not be disappointed.
Florida has so much to offer it isn’t easy to condense it into one article. However, those looking for a cultural experience will find Miami’s vibrant and diverse atmosphere an adventure in itself. While there, we recommend taking a private VIP tour of the city’s art deco architectural history before enjoying lunch in Wynwood or South Beach.
Of course, a guide on Florida wouldn’t be complete without mentioning golf, and Florida does not disappoint. From TPC Sawgrass to the Blue Monster and Golden Palm, Florida is a golfer’s paradise.
Outside of golf, we highly recommend touring The Keys – whether by yacht or car- and make sure to stop in Key West for some delicious key lime pie and a visit to the Hemmingway Home & Museum.

Los Cabos, Mexico
Mexico is home to awe-inspiring private jet destinations, and Los Cabos is no exception. Easily accessible from most of the US on a mid-size or smaller private jet, Los Cabos is a brilliant destination.
While in Los Cabos, we recommend chartering a yacht for a once-in-a-lifetime whale-watching trip. From December to Mid-April, the humpback whale makes its annual migration to the more nutrient-rich waters of Canada and Alaska, and Los Cabos is ideally situated to witness the event.
Those more into nightlife than wildlife will find plenty of enjoyment in Los Cabos. For a wild evening, one must visit Plaza Bonita and experience the nightlife surrounding the square in downtown Cabo San Lucas.
For a calmer visit, the One&Only Palmilla offers brilliant spa facilities, fine dining, beautiful suites and plenty of opportunities for excursions – from jeep safaris to Tequila tasting.
Private jet travelers to Los Cabos can choose between Los Cabos International (SJD) and Cab San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo (CSL).
The Golden State is truly that. Nowhere else can you find such diverse cityscapes, stunning coastlines, national parks, cultural hotspots, and fonts of popular culture. From the Golden Gate Bridge to The Hollywood Hills, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Joshua Tree, and Yosemite National Park, California could be a thriving country in itself.
While California offers many opportunities (one of our favourite recommendations is staying at the Post Ranch Inn on the face of Big Sur), we highly recommend a trip to Pebble Beach – a breathtaking haven along California’s Monterey Peninsula. The area is famed for its elegant, luxury resorts like The Inn at Spanish Bay and Casa Palmero.
From legendary golf courses, including the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links, to the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance (August 20) showcasing classic cars, every moment is infused with sophistication.
Savor culinary excellence at renowned restaurants like The Bench and Roy’s at Pebble Beach, where innovative menus and flavors tantalize your taste buds.
