Why go to Hawaii

Say aloha to tropical beaches and a warm welcome with a holiday in Hawaii, an island chain of idyllic sands, epic volcanoes, and a distinctive culture. Whether you're a honeymooner, adventurer or family looking for a package holiday, each of the major islands has its own character and appeal.

The Big Island (also known simply as Hawaii) is home to smouldering Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, as well as the cowboy ranches of Waimea. Maui, meanwhile, has some of Hawaii’s best beaches, plus the scenic Road to Hana and the luxurious resorts of Wailea. Nearby is little Lanai, slow-paced and strung with secluded beaches. ‘Garden Island’ Kauai is known for its lush landscapes, threaded by hiking trails. Then there’s Oahu, home to the fizzing capital of Honolulu and historic sites such as Pearl Harbor.

Most come to Hawaii for the beaches; none leave disappointed – Hawaiian beaches live up to the hype. Go snorkelling with sea turtles and manta rays in crystalline water (south Lanai is ideal) or surf the north shore of Oahu. Experience scuba diving at colourful Molokini or spot humpback whales between January and March.

Tips and advice

Is it safe to go to Hawaii?

Hawaii is generally safe for travellers, but it is prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity, and there are hurricanes (particularly May to November). For the most up-to-date travel advice for Hawaii, check the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.

Do I need to have a visa to go to Hawaii?

British passport holders need a USA visa waiver (ESTA) to holiday in Hawaii.

What vaccinations do I need to go to Hawaii?

There are no specific vaccinations required for travellers to Hawaii.

How many days do I need in Hawaii?

Given the long flight time from the UK, most visitors from outside the USA stay for ten days or more to allow time for snorkelling, seeing active volcanoes like Haleakala and Kilauea, nightlife and a couple of day trips. To explore multiple islands, a fortnight feels less rushed.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

The principle of malama aina (nurturing the land) underpins Hawaii so don’t take rocks and sand as souvenirs, and always take rubbish away with you.

Getting around Hawaii

Many travellers use their resorts as a base for day trips by tour or taxi. Some resorts have free shuttle services to attractions. Consider cutting down your car rental period to only a couple of days to keep your price tag low. Oahu has a good public bus system.
