There’s really no bad time to visit the Big Island, with so many natural wonders making for an incredible experience at any time of year.
If you’re coming for whale watching, the best time of year is from January through March, with February being the best month.
If you’re looking for smaller crowds – and a bigger choice of cheap tickets to Hawaii – then traveling in mid- to late-April is your best bet. This low season extends into May and June, and then starts again in late September through October.
During the peak summer months of July and August the island can get a little busy, flights book up sooner and air fares hike up quicker.
Other holiday periods, such as Christmas, New Year and Easter also get very busy on the island, as people travel from other states for some winter sun.
There are plenty of departure airports to choose from when looking for Cheap Flights to Hawaii. And when you search for flights with Orbitz you can use a few tricks to help you find the best deals.
It’s very important that you’re flexible. Using the ‘Nearby Airports’ option, located under your chosen departure and arrival choices when your search results are returned, allows you to explore deals available from other airports. This includes both main airports on Hawaii Island.
Another great way to get cheap flights is to be flexible on the dates. Click in the ‘My Dates Are Flexible’ tick box when making your search to browse the cheapest flight on each day.
You can filter and sort your Hawaii flights results on the left-hand side of the page, or you can use the ‘Show Options’ drop-down to sort your flights by price, duration or other filters.
There are numeroUS Departures to Hawaii Island from various US destinations.
There are two major airports on Hawaii Island, each offering good connections to mainland US states. Kona International Airport is located on the western side of the island and Hilo International is on the east.
You also have the option of flying to Honolulu International and then catching a short inter-island flight to the Big Island.
Most of the direct flights from US and Canadian cities arrive at Kona, located around seven miles to the northwest of Kailua Kona. It offers good access to many of the major tourist destinations on the leeward side of the island.
Direct flights to Hawaii Island are available from a number of different carriers.
It might be called the Big Island but it’s actually relatively small. At its widest point it’s only 95 miles across, although it is still twice as big as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined.
The best way of getting around is by renting a car. This will give you the freedom to explore the island, getting off the beaten track and away from the tourist traps. And with so much to see, it really makes sense.
If you don’t have a car, then your options are more limited. Although there are buses, the network isn’t huge, and it’s not as efficient as those on some of the other islands. There are also taxi and lift sharing services on the island, as well as organized sightseeing tours.
The trouble on Hawaii Island is deciding where to start. The Volcanoes National Park is a solid bet, with the strange glow of the lava lake to see and plenty of hiking trails through a smoking landscape and lush rainforest to explore. Strap on a snorkel in Kealakekua Bay, where you can swim with a parade of tropical fish and even dolphins. Horseback ride through the unique Waipi’O Valley, with its black sand and waterfalls that cascade down to the beach. Or, simply kick back on Hapuna Beach, one of the state’s most popular stretches. If you’re feeling active, grab a board for some of the island’s best surfing.
Unless you’re fine with big crowds on the beach, it’s probably best to avoid the school holidays and big celebrations like Christmas. You can also get discount flights to Hawaii during low season so this offers a good time to travel.
It’s best to accept the fact that it’s just not possible to see everything during your stay, so don’t spoil your trip by spending endless hours behind the wheel. Just relax and get into the Hawaiian spirit.
