Turquoise waters, white sand, coconut trees, ukulele, flower necklaces, exceptional climate... How not to find your happiness in this sublime and multiple destination! In the middle of the North Pacific, it is a volcanic Polynesian archipelago with 8 main islands and about 100 islets. Six of them are visited, the others are private or uninhabited. Each one has its own identity, its own nickname. Oahu, "the most popular" and best known, offers the urban madness of the very American Honolulu but also the sweetness of life of Haleiwa, the surfers' capital, without forgetting Pearl Harbor and Waikiki Beach. And it is also the birthplace of Barack Obama, the former President of the United States. As for Maui, " l' île de la vallée", between its dormant volcano and its magical Hana road, it is an open-air tropical garden. The island of Hawaii, the largest of all, is home to the highest peak in the Pacific and one of the most active volcanoes in the world. More peaceful, Kauai, "the garden island", is a festival of colours where the emerald of the Napali Coast meets the ochre of Waimea Canyon. Lanai, "the enchanting one", and Molokai "authentique ", of a smaller size, remain unavoidable wild pearls. Following the advice of a Hawaii tour guide, you will discover the prodigious diversity of the archipelago, but also the kindness of its inhabitants in this state of the United States. Hawaii is a true dream destination that we invite you to discover urgently.
When to go to Hawaii?
Depending on the activities you wish to do during your holidays, you should choose winter or summer. In winter, the sea is quite rough, and it's surfing season for the pros. In summer, the sea is much calmer, ideal for swimming, surfing lessons for beginners, snorkeling and kayaking. Here are some tips on when to go to Hawaii.
Hawaii has two high tourist seasons: winter and summer. These two periods actually correspond to the school holidays in the United States, hence the peaks in attendance. These are the most expensive seasons at all levels (flights, accommodation, restaurants, tours...).
Winter is very popular with water sports professionals because it is the period when the waves are at a good level for their practice. But you need to have a good experience in this field because in some corners, the rollers reach 10 m high! That's why the Triple Crown of Surfing World Surfing Championship, which takes place on Oahu's North Coast, is held in winter. But rest assured that many beaches are also ideal for swimming or swimming safely in winter, and in summer, the waters of the archipelago are calmer and perfect for swimming, lazing around or snorkeling.
Low tourist season: spring and autumn. These off-seasons remain very pleasant, however, as the Hawaiian climate is mild all year round. It is the best time to enjoy the calm of the islands and their paradisiacal setting. Many honeymoon trips take place during this period.
