Hawaii is one of the world's most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations and with dramatic scenery, tropical rainforest, exotic flowers, gushing waterfalls and miles and miles of sandy beaches it is easy to see why.
There is so much to do with a range of activities such as golf, zip lining through the forests, kayaking and various other watersports. There are many beautiful resorts with state of the art facilities and fantastic surroundings here in Hawaii.
With only two seasons; summer and winter, weather on all the Hawaiian Islands is consistent, with only slight changes in temperature throughout the year. The summer months run from May to October, with an average temperature of 85ºF (29ºC) and the winter months have an average of 78ºF (25ºC) running from November to April. However temperatures can drop dramatically at higher elevations.
The sea temperatures average at 74ºF, rising to 80ºF in the summer and wave conditions can vary considerably between island coasts and seasons. Summer waters are generally gentle on all beaches, while the winter months on many of the islands north shore beaches are where Hawaii's renowned waves can be found. If the large waves are not for you, calmer water can always be found at a more sheltered beach.
The islands have a collection of many diverse micro-environments, each with its own weather, plants and animals. All within a few miles you can experience tropical rainforests, cool alpine regions, volcanic deserts and sunny beaches.
