Say aloha to paradise: White and jet black beaches, lush valleys, luaus and the sound of ukuleles in the distance. Take helicopter rides over active volcanoes, drink mai tais at sunset and enjoy starry nights atop Mauna Kea. Kayak the Kealakekua Bay and swim with manta rays, or watch the sun rise over Mount Haleakala.
From Hapuna Beach to Halemaumau, let Orbitz guide you through the 50th state. Our insiders share the best time to go on a Hawaii vacation, including the top 10 highlights and insider gems.
With Hawaii weather, you'd be hard-pressed to find a bad time to go. Leeward (southwestern) coasts are sunny and arid, and the windward (northeastern) sides are mountainous with jungles and pounding surf. The uplands are cooler and the landscape is rural. From December to March, Hawaii sees an influx of crowds and hotel rates are competitive. Fall and spring are little slower and discount hotel rates are easier to find. Winter brings rain, but the temperatures rarely dip below 60 degrees.
Events populate Hawaii year-round, but if you want to join the largest crowds, hit Aloha Festivals on Oahu in September, the Ironman World Championship on the Big Island in October, and the Honolulu Marathon on Oahu in December.
Experience Hawaii like a local at this Honolulu haven. Located on Kapahulu Avenue, drinks are reasonably priced and the pork chops are a house specialty.
Honor the thousands who lost their lives here, most famously at the USS Arizona Memorial, which is accessible only by boat. Beneath the memorial is the sunken hull of the battleship where more than 1,100 sailors lost their lives. Admission is free, with tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hit the trails with smooth-riding Hawaii Paso Finos -- gaited horses ideal for all ages and skill-levels. The Vitorinos specialize in historic horseback rides on Hawaii's North Kohala Coast, including rides through plantations and rainforests.
This is one of Kauai's top sites for snorkelers, scuba divers and swimmers. The massive hook-shaped reef features inner crevices teeming with sea life and tunnels and caverns along the outer reef. Check the reports before heading out, especially during winter, when the sea is consistently rough.
Experience Hawaiian mythology and history at "Ulalena: A Story of Hawaii's People" where the stage lights up with acrobats, hula, traditional dance and music.
