The Best Time to Visit Hawaii for Every Type of Traveler


By Sarah Sekula, published on Matador Network

Vacationing in Hawaii is a no-brainer. However, deciding on the best time to visit Hawaii can be tricky. But thanks to year-round balmy temps ranging from 78 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit and a variety of microclimates (think: arid deserts, cool alpine regions, volcanic mountains, and tropical rainforests), it’s possible to find sunny weather any time of the year on any Hawaiian island.

When it comes to weather across the Hawaiian islands, variety is not so much island to island but region to region on each island due to the diverse micro-environments. An area shielded by volcanic mountains, for example, will have different weather than a nearby rainforest.

When it comes to the best time to visit Hawaii to avoid rain, November through March tend to be the rainier months, and April to October are the drier periods. Of course, sprinkles or downpours can pop up any day of the year, but it’s uncommon for any one spot to get drenched for more than a few days in a row during the dry period. As the saying goes, if you don’t like the weather where you are, just drive to another part of the island for sunnier skies.
