There's no place like Hawaii for natural beauty and culture. Hawaii is home to one of the world's most active volcanoes, the world's tallest sea mountain and it is the birthplace of modern surfing, the hula and Hawaii Regional Cuisine.
The country itself was once a seat of a royal kingdom and is home to the only royal palace on US soil. Hawaii's most unique feature is its aloha spirit: the warmth of Hawaii's people that wonderfully complements the Islands' perfect temperatures. There are 6 islands to explore when you visit Hawaii; Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Kauai, Lanai and the island of Hawaii itself. Each with its own distinct personality. The most popular islands with tourists are Maui and Oahu.
Maui offers that wonderfully warm Hawaiian Aloha and some superb attractions such as Hana Highway & Lahaina Haleakala National Park, amidst a magnificent backdrop of undulating mountains and valleys, with miles of pure white sands and delightful coves such as Kaanapali Beach which offers shelter to dolphins taking time out from the depths of the awesome Pacific Ocean or the Black Rock, paradise for snorkelling enthusiasts.
Surf’s up and the sun is shining! The third largest Hawaiian Island with an area of 600 sq. miles, Oahu is Hawaii’s most popular island and for good reason. It's the place to be – where all the action is! The island offers spectacular scenery, lush plantations, tropical beaches and a surfer’s paradise on the North Shore. Surf the waves, appreciate the arts, sway with hula dancers, tantalize your senses with local delicacies, rock the night away or embrace under a waterfall.

Weather in Maui
There are many reasons for Maui’s famous warm weather, Maui is approximately 1,400 miles north of the equator, which is in an area on the planet that has high sun during the entire year. This allows plentiful amounts of sunshine to beam down on the island. The warm ocean keeps the overlying atmosphere from cooling significantly, ensuring the near perfect weather conditions that Maui enjoys.
Weather in Oahu
Oahu has two types of weather - one warm, the other cool and wet. Summer runs from May to October and averages a daily maximum for Honolulu of 29°C and a minimum of 21°C thanks to the constant presence of the trade winds. Winter sees a cooling down and the odd storm, but average high temperatures remain balmy at 22°C. Rainfall depends on where you are on the island. The higher you climb the wetter (and cooler) it gets. Waikiki gets an annual average of only 25in (63.5cm). It also rains more on the east side of the island than the west.
