Yet there is more to these islands than fire and brimstone. Maui, Oahu and Hawaii (also called ‘the Big Island’) boast some of the most stunning beaches, hotels and attractions in the world, while Hawaiian culture is renowned for its friendliness, bright colour and undeniable hospitality. Hawaii has long enjoyed a reputation as a tropical paradise. The islands enjoy a warm year-round climate that has made it a popular destination for holidaymakers throughout the year and given the wealth of different attractions on the island, it is not difficult to see why so many are enticed by its charms. Given that the islands owe their existence to tectonic activity, it is somewhat fitting that one of the most popular attractions for visitors enjoying a Hawaii holiday is the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, featuring the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea. Visitors can access the park in a number of ways, taking helicopter tours and flights from any of the islands, or if you are on Big Island, you can see the volcanoes, the Jagger Museum and the famous Kaimu Black Sand Beaches as part of a coach tour or even via a guided bicycle tour. Those seeking a view of indigenous local traditions should consider a trip to the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu.
The centre is a celebration of local traditions and features seven villages, where locals re-enact ancient skills, dances and take part in elaborate ceremonies. In the evening, you can participate in an authentic Hawaiian Luau, the Alii Luau Feast, which features the obligatory lei greeting, traditional dancing and a succulent Hawaiian banquet.:3:Fans of modern history would also be enthralled by the touching exhibits on display at the four museums and many other artefacts and vessels on display at Pearl Harbour. The attraction in Oahu is not just a fitting monument to those who lost their life during the military strike by Japan on 7th December 1941, but also includes a great deal of background information about the circumstances surrounding American involvement in World War II. Adventure lovers have plenty to occupy themselves in Hawaii - Maui is a particularly popular centre for those who enjoy scuba diving, kayaking and snorkelling.
Others opt for the picturesque Waianae Coast in Oahu to spend time swimming with dolphins. If you don’t fancy getting wet to see what is under the ocean, Sea Life Park in Oahu allows you to get up close with many of the native off-shore creatures, as well as many from much further away. Hawaii also offers two spectacular ways to end a perfect day. The first is to scale the summit of Mauna Kea to experience lunch at the nearby Parker Ranch, before enjoying warm drinks and cookies, flanked by the famous twin Kek Telescopes to enjoy the marvels of the crystal-clear Hawaiian night sky. For something a little more romantic, a sunset cruise complete with evening meal is the perfect way to end the day. The volcanic fumes emanating from the nearby Kilauea creating some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world as your cruise ship visits the many beautiful sights around the islands. Being close to the equator, Hawaii does not enjoy distinct seasons. The weather year-round is invariably warm with temperatures of between 24 to 29 degrees C typical throughout the calendar. In terms of temperature, there is little difference between summer and winter seasons, but July to September tend to be the hotter times, with more days around the 30 degrees C mark, while February and March are the coolest months, with nighttime low temperatures of 18 degrees C.
More of a factor in deciding when to go to Hawaii is the rainfall, and this is dependent both on the time of year you visit and also on which side of the islands you stay. Along the eastern (windward) coast, trade winds bring in moisture and cause rain to fall more commonly in this area, the western coasts (leeward) sides of the islands tend to be sheltered from the majority of rains by the mountains and as such enjoy less rain. As a result, most of Hawaii’s most popular tourist resorts tend to be focused on the western coastlines. In terms of crowds, December to April is the busiest period and July to August is also when the islands are more crowded. Travelling outside these periods is advisable if you can as you not only get the best of the islands weather and attractions, but hotel rooms are much cheaper too.
