When to Go
While Hawaii is popular all year long, like many other destinations it has an off season and a popular season. Many families come here during spring break, the winter holidays and summer. Picking another time of the year can help you save money. It’s also when the beaches are likely to be less crowded and attractions are easier to book. Consider a month such as April or October for a deeply satisfying getaway.
Narrow Down Your Itinerary
The Hawaiian Islands consist of roughly eight major islands and dozens of other smaller islands. These islands sprawl over a thousand miles across the Pacific. It’s a good idea for each traveler to consider making one island their home base. For example, the islands of Hawaii, Oahu and Maui are the biggest of the islands. These make a fine place to start any vacation. Keep in mind that travel between islands can take a lot of time. The largest islands have ferry service, but many smaller islands may only be accessible by helicopter or private boat. A traveler can also choose to stay along the more tropical east and north near a beach. Then, head to the west or south for a few days focused on the interior.
Have at Least One Fabulous Adventure
Visiting Hawaii offers a great opportunity to savor new experiences. Now is the time to think about trying something you’ve never done before. If you’ve always wanted to go deep sea diving, there’s a tremendously beautiful world waiting for you right offshore that you can see in person. Hawaii has breathtaking waterfalls filled with rainbows, active volcanoes, and astonishing pods of marine mammals often playing right in front of your eyes. Think about a visit to a regional national park like Napali Coast where you can go kayaking with friends and family along waters rarely seen by outsiders.
Head to the Beach
While there’s so much to see and do here, the beaches and waves remain the true stars of the show. Hawaii is home to hundreds of world class beaches. Grab a picnic basket and take a seat. Learn to surf the waves like the pros with a class devoted to beginners and more advanced students alike. As the sun sets along the Pacific, it’s the right time for a quiet walk along the waters on soft sand with the warmth of the day. Dip your toe in the water and appreciate the view from your perch. This is a place to savor, admire and let nature take center stage.
