Vanessa Hudgens Goes Hawaiian (VIDEO)

Leave it to Vanessa Hudgens to make the tropical paradise of Hawaii even more breath-taking.

The High School Musical stunner did her part to keep the Aloha State beautiful on Saturday, hanging out in Waikiki and chatting with a male pal while sporting a super-casual ensemble of shorts, flip-flops, trucker hat and a loose top. No word on what the topic of the no-doubt-riveting conversation was; perhaps Hudgie Bear and her bud were discussing possible birthday presents for her boyfriend Zac Efron, who turns 23 today.

Hudgens will be putting in a lot of time in Hawaii in the coming months; she’s scheduled to begin filming Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, with Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine later this month.
