Think of holidays to Hawaii and you'll probably imagine hula dancing on a perfect beach. You'll find plenty of that on these beautiful islands, but there's so much discover inland. Go mountain biking or hiking in stunning mountains, venture through dense forests and walk lava tubes.
Back on the coast, learn to surf gargantuan waves – or just sit back and watch. Hawaii is a captivating destination full of as much adrenalin-fuelled action as you wish. And if you'd prefer to switch off in a pampering spa, or just rock in a hammock between two palms, that's just fine. You'll soon get into the easy-going way of life on Hawaii holidays.
Make your stay here part of a tailor-made American adventure, or head straight to Paradise and kick back. It's up to you.
Hawaii holidays are popular all year round, thanks to good weather. December to March can be a little cooler, but plenty of people visit the islands at this time. If you want to go whale watching, you're most likely to catch a glimpse between January and April.
What you do on Hawaii holidays depends largely on where you stay. Each island has its own personality and host of things to see and do. On Oahu, visit historic Pearl Harbour and the palaces of Iolani and Queen Emma. On other islands, see natural wonders like volcanoes, rainforests and stunning waterfalls. We're happy to advise on what each individual island has to offer. Top notch golf courses, first class spas, steamy rainforests, horse riding, boat trips, island-hopping, mountain biking, surfing and diving are just some of the amazing attractions on offer in this spectacular destination.
Hawaiian cuisine is an exciting mix of worldwide influences including Japanese, Portuguese, and American. Fresh seafood features heavily on most menus. Pull up a seat at one of the islands' many outdoor restaurants and eat out, Hawaiian style. When it comes to drinks, don't miss the chance to try signature tiki cocktails like the Mai Tai.
Whether your idea of the perfect evening is a quiet beach stroll or a spectacular hula performance, there's an evening out to suit you in Hawaii. Hotels have their own bars in-house and some of the larger ones have discos. For late nights and bright lights, head to downtown Honolulu in Oahu, where you'll be spoilt for choice.
