Hawaii Holidays

Boasting sensational views, tropical rainforests, volcanic deserts, and long sandy beaches: Hawaii is perfect for all to visit, from explorers to love-birds, all year round.

Hawaii’s Climate

The Hawaiian Islands have only two seasons; summer and winter, so the weather remains consistent with slight shifts in temperature throughout the year.

The summer months, May to October, have an average temperature of 85ºF (29ºC) and the winter months, November to April, have an average of 78ºF (25ºC). So whenever you book your Hawaiian escape with sunshine.co.uk you can expect paradise conditions.

For the adventurous, there are diverse micro-environments across the islands to explore with varying weather, plants and wildlife including lush mountains, tropical rainforests, and volcanic deserts.

If you want to witness Hawaii’s ‘sport of kings’ surfing then big wave season hits between November and February on the North Shore with world-class competitions. There are viewer-friendly beaches at Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, and the Banzai Pipeline.
