Hawaii may be the USA’s youngest state, but it still has plenty to tantalise your travel taste buds – fierce volcanoes, bountiful beaches, jungle-clad hills and world-class surfing, to name a few. Its eight islands – perfect for hopping between – are also the birthplace of SUPing (stand up paddle boarding), which gives you an idea of how laid back this tropical archipelago truly is. It’s about more than lazy days by the water though; in fact its culture is one of the most rich, unique, throughout the entire United States. And whether you explore spots like Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor, Kualoa Ranch or Honolulu on Oahu; surf at sunrise in Po’ipū Beach Park, SUP the Huleia River, or sail along the Nāpali coast in Kauai; and immerse yourself in the food and drink of Maui – particularly the Upcountry Farmers Market – there’s real adventure to be had here too. This is the land of valley hikes, unforgettable mountain vistas, humpback whale-watching and water sports aplenty...

When to Go to Hawaii
With its tropical location, Hawaii only really has two seasons – both of which are warm. April to October promises the driest weather, while November to March is the wet season. That being said, travelling during the latter can mean better deals on holidays, airfares and accommodation. The weather varies inland too, with the mountains, volcanoes and valleys having their own microclimates, so whenever you visit it’s worth taking a waterproof and suitable footwear if you plan to hike.
