Holidays in Hawaii

Called ‘The Aloha State’, Hawaii’s six islands welcome you with a smile; ‘Aloha’ is both a greeting and a lifestyle. Each island has its own distinctive character - Oahu is lively and Maui is captivating; Kauai is perfect for rejuvenating and Hawaii Island is for the adventurer. Come to the Hawaiian Islands to enjoy the luau and lei traditions that have made it famous, and settle into the easygoing sway of island life.

28 °C

Best time to visit Hawaii: The Hawaiian islands have a lovely tropical climate all year round, cooled a little by the trade winds coming in from the east.

North of Hawaii Island is Maui, ‘The Valley Isle’. It’s where you’ll find the incredible Hana Highway route, and award-winning beaches like Wailea which is perfect for romantic strolls. Keen golfers are spoilt for choice, with three championship-level golf courses. Further north-west is energetic Oahu, called ‘The Heart of Hawaii’. Come here for lively Waikiki Beach, and all the urban charms of state capital Honolulu on the southern shore. North of Oahu is verdant Kauai, ‘The Garden Island’. The oldest of all the islands, it boasts 90 miles of sandy beach, and plenty of miles of wilderness for trekking.

Golfers and shoppers alike will love Wailea – it’s got three amazing golf courses and the shops have all the big brands you could ask for. For fantastic views, make your way to upcountry Maui. Drive to Haleakala National Park to take in the sunrise or stroll through the historic town of Lahaina for dinning, arts, and shopping.

The island of Oahu is home to sun-drenched Honolulu - come to this dynamic yet laid-back city to get your dose of bright urban lights. Waikiki’s hotels are perfectly located for shopping and the beach; get yourself a wetsuit and head to Waikiki Beach for surfing lessons.

The lush green Kauai is fantastic for intrepid explorers and nature lovers. Take in the stunning Wailua Falls in Lihue, or enjoy the fun of Poipu on the south shore. The golden sands of the Coconut Coast are perfect for chilled-out afternoons of sunbathing, shave ice in hand.

Hawaii Island, or Hawaii, The Big Island, is the largest of all the Hawaiian Islands. See waterfalls and rainforests in Hilo, swim with the mantra ray in Kona or view one of the world’s most active volcanoes - Kilauea, in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

This stunning tropical archipelago is home to active volcanoes in the National Park on Hawaii Island, and nature preserves like Hanauma Bay on Oahu. On Kauai you can hike the beautiful Kalalau Trail, or take in the view of Waimea canyon. Grab a fruity shave ice (snow cone) to cool off after bodyboarding on Waimanalo Beach, or learn to surf at Waikiki or chill on Poipu beach with a book. Learn more about Hawaii’s history with a visit to the poignant Pearl Harbour and USS Arizona Memorial on Oahu; celebrate its culture of garland-making and giving during Lei Day (1st May).

Hawaiian food has strong east and south-east Asian influences, plus a fondness for SPAM. There’s even a local sushi variation called SPAM musubi (spam, rice and seaweed). Try it with POG, a drink blended from passion fruit, guava and orange juices. A filling plate lunch is a local favourite, serving a Korean or Japanese-style main, plus two scoops of rice and a macaroni salad on the side. Satisfy a big appetite with a Loco Moco - a gravy-topped hamburger steak and egg served on rice. Got a sweet tooth? You’ll love sugary and fluffy donut-style masaladas.

Drive the scenic Hana Highway to the tiny village of Hana, on east Maui. One of the world’s greatest road trips, it twists and turns over 109km through jungle and waterfalls for a thrilling, jaw-dropping journey. Climb on board the Pineapple Express train, which trundles pleasantly through Oahu’s Dole Plantation, former centre of Hawaii’s pineapple harvesting industry. Dive into the Pacific waters to go snorkelling and see if you can spot Hawaii’s state fish: the delightfully named humuhumunukunukuapuaa (practise saying that before you’ve sampled the local Mai Tai or Blue Hawaiian cocktails).

With its lush mountain backdrops, Hawaii’s stunning beaches and famous waves make for perfect sunbathing and watersports – here is where surfing was invented, and the North Shore of Oahu sees some of the biggest waves in the world during the winter. Poipu on Kauai is the ‘sunny side of paradise’, and here you can snorkel, swim, and see incredible sunsets. Of the 80 incredible beaches on Maui, the award-winning sandy Ka’anapali Beach is a visitor’s favourite, and home to a daily cliff-diving ceremony.
