Welcome to Hawaii
Discover why the six Islands of Aloha are home to treasures unlike any other on earth: the dramatic cliffs of the Napali Coast on Kauai. The vibrant shores of Waikiki Beach on Oahu. The miles of white sands of Papohaku Beach on Molokai. The dolphin-friendly waters of Hulopoe Bay on Lanai. The summit of Haleakala on Maui. The primal energy of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Island of Hawaii. It won’t be easy choosing which island to visit on your first trip to Hawaii, but you’ll find there are no wrong answers.??You’ll likely begin your adventure at Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu. This is Hawaii’s major airport, serving as the entry point for most of Hawaii’s visitors. All major domestic carriers and many international carriers serve Oahu, so you can get here from just about anywhere. There are also direct flights from the U.S. mainland to Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii Island, but for the most part, you may need to connect through Oahu to get to the neighbor islands, including Lanai and Molokai.??Once you’ve arrived, breathe deep. Smell the fresh plumeria in the air. Visit the historic landmarks of Hawaii and learn about the rich culture of the islands. Explore off-the-beaten-path destinations, from hidden beaches to small towns that you won’t find on a postcard. Learn to surf, snorkel, or kayak and earn your Hawaii suntan. And don’t forget to go to an authentic luau where you can get a taste of Hawaiian culture and watch the art of the hula.
You’ll find the itineraries on Hawaii are endless. From romantic escapades to family fun, from whale watching to walking on a volcano, you can do it all or you can simply sit back and do nothing. Explore Hawaii’s six unique islands, and you’re sure to find your first trip to Hawaii won’t be your last!
Weather in The Hawaiian Islands is very consistent, with only minor changes in temperature throughout the year. There are really only two seasons in Hawaii: summer (kau) from May to October and winter (hooilo) from November to April. Winter is slightly cooler than summer, but you can still experience beautiful tropical weather. For visitors who are drawn to the natural beauty found a little higher up, be prepared to wear cooler weather clothes and your favorite hat. No matter the season, Hawaii will always greet you with an abundance of sunshine.
