With hula dancers ready to welcome visitors, Hawaii is America's tropical paradise. Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the country's coral reefs, majestic mountains and stunning beaches make it a slice of heaven on earth. Experience it all on a Hawaii holiday.

Hawaii’s lush greenery is courtesy of a healthy rainfall. Though the sun shines brightly all year round, rain occurs at least somewhere on the island almost every day. Hawaii experiences year round highs of 82 degrees and from May to September the island enjoys summer with beautiful warm and dry weather. Winter occurs from October through to April with rainfall and surf conditions increasing during this time. Peak season usually occurs during winter with tourists spending their Christmas and Easter breaks in Hawaii. Avoid the crowds and wet weather by holding off until May through to September.

Though the islands experience different seasons, Hawaii’s diverse terrain means much of the state is split into cool and warm regions. The south west coasts on the islands are typically sunny and home to the best beaches. The rugged north eastern ends are a lot wetter and offer lush forests and cherished surf spots.

Surf carnivals and festivals are a dime a dozen in Hawaii. Some of the best celebrations include Kona’s annual coffee festival in November, the Billabong Pro Maui in December and April’s Merrie Monarch Festival which celebrates the art and skill of Hula.
