Best Time of Year to Visit Hawaii

For most travelers, the best time to visit depends on the weather and vacation budget. In Hawaii, the temperature is relatively consistent year-round, with highs in the upper 70s or low 80s and lows in the mid-60s. March, April, and November tend to be the rainiest months, but Hawaii rarely receives more than three-quarters of an inch of rain in any month. Winter is high season in Hawaii, as travelers escape the cold on the islands, which means hotel prices can be much higher from December through March. Summer also tends to be a popular time to visit, especially for families. To avoid the crowds and save on accommodations, plan your trip during the fall, when family travel drops off and many hotels lower their rates significantly.

Most Popular Types of Vacations in Hawaii

When taking a trip to Hawaii, travelers typically plan a family vacation, a romantic getaway, or an outdoor adventure. If you're traveling with the family, you'll find fun for all ages watching humpback whales off the coast of Maui, flying kites on Molokai, exploring interactive exhibits at museums on Oahu, and making leis at your resort. For a romantic getaway, visit Sweetheart Rock in Hulopoe Bay on Lanai, take it slow on Molokai, enjoy hyperlocal cuisine on Maui, or watch the stars in Maunakea. If you have a taste for adventure, go kiteboarding on Kite Beach in Maui, go for an unforgettable scuba dive off the coast of Kailua-Kona, take a helicopter ride over Mt. Kilauea, or climb the Olomana Three Peaks Trail on Oahu.

Cheapest Hotels in Hawaii

It's easy to splurge on an all-inclusive resort in Hawaii, but you'll also find plenty of budget-friendly accommodations on all of the primary tourist islands. On Kauai, the Kauai Palms Hotel offers affordable rooms near the Kauai Museum, and the Castle Mokihana is one of the cheapest beach resorts you'll find on any of the Hawaiian Islands. On Maui, the Lahaina Inn has basic rooms with all the essentials you need right in the heart of town, and the Kaanapali Ocean Inn has budget-friendly accommodations right on the waterfront at Kaanapali Beach. In Honolulu, stay right on the famed beach at the Waikiki Beachside Hostel, which has basic rooms for low rates, or book a room at the Kuhio Banyan Club for a cheap room in the center of Honolulu.
