In a previous post, we discussed some of the best times of the year to visit Hawaii if you’re interested in surfing, snorkeling, hiking, and whale watching. Today, we will look at a few more popular activities to do when you’re in Hawaii, as well as the best time of year for each. At Aloha Vacation Villas, we know that your vacation is a special time, and that is why we offer the very best in Hawaiian vacation rentals. Be sure to contact us and reserve yours today!

Fishing

Fishing is actually something that can be enjoyed year-round in Hawaii. What changes is the types of fish that you can expect to catch — except for sharks, which you can always find. The fall typically sees a lot of billfish, all varieties of marlin, mahi mahi, and giant trevally. If you are hoping to snag marlin, snapper, skipjack, or bigeye tuna, then you want to make sure that you plan your trip during the winter months. You might even be able to spot a whale! A visit during the summer should provide the perfect opportunity to reel in yellowfin, blue marlin, ono, and skipjack.

Discounts

Due to it’s stunningly beautiful landscape and pleasant weather, you can appreciate why Hawaii can be an expensive trip most of the time. If you are looking to get some discounts, then there are a few things you should know. For example, it’s usually best to book your trip early and then try to schedule mid-week flights. Flights on the weekends are more popular, and therefore more expensive. For the cheapest rates on flights and living accommodations, you can expect to find those during the spring and fall months. One exception to the spring rule is the last week of April, which is Gold Week. This is Japan’s peak travel time.

Avoid Crowds

For many people, their vacation is a time to get away from people. With that goal in mind, you should know that while June and July due tend to be less expensive than the winter months, they also tend to be more crowded. Summer is typically when many people travel, as their children tend to be on break from school. The quietest month for tourists is November, with the week of Thanksgiving being the exception. Late spring and early fall are generally the best times of the year to visit the Aloha State if your goal is to avoid as many crowds as possible.

 

Airline Tickets

Airline tickets are probably one of the most expensive aspects of any vacation travel plans, and tickets to Hawaii are no exception. Prices for flights to Hawaii can fluctuate dramatically, especially depending on the time of year. Generally, you should try to book your flight one to four months in advance so that you can take advantage of the best rates. The ideal window for finding deals is approximately six weeks from when you need to travel.  

Hawaiian vacation rentals are another great way to save money during your stay in Hawaii. Be sure to contact Aloha Vacation Rentals in Kapalua Bay and let us know how we can help provide the ideal rental for you.

Surfing

Whether you are a beginner surfer, or you have been an avid surfer your whole life, you know that a becalmed ocean is never enjoyable for those who want to surf. If you are hoping to come during the perfect time when the waves are breaking set after set, then you want to plan your Hawaiian trip for the winter months, especially in December and January, when the biggest waves tend to hit the north shores of all of our islands. For those of you who are true beginners, be sure to stick to the south sides of the islands, or plan your vacation during the summer months when waves are calmer.

Snorkeling and Swimming

If snorkeling and swimming are more your speed, then you definitely want to plan your Hawaiian vacation during the summer when the waters are warmer, the waves are calmer, and the skies are sunnier. These conditions all make for the best viewing experiences when you are snorkeling. In fact, you can snorkel and swim year round, but if you are looking for the ideal time to fully enjoy either of these activities, then make sure to book your trip during the summer months and call Aloha Vacation Villas to book your Hawaiian vacation rental today.

Hiking

It is no secret that Hawaii has a multitude of gorgeous hiking trails that are suitable for all ages and abilities. Whether you want to explore the mountains, or hike near the coastline, you will find the perfect trails to enjoy. Summer is once again the best month to plan your trip if hiking is high on your list of things to do, given that there are more daylight hours and the trails tend to be drier. Be sure to pack plenty of water and sunscreen, as it does get pretty hot here during the summer.

Whale Watching

Each year, whales make the journey from Alaska to Hawaii to give birth to their calves during the winter months. The best time to plan your visit is between the months of February and April as this is peak season for them to be seen. Make sure to travel to our western shores for the best opportunities to spend your time whale watching, and don’t forget to fully charge your phone so that you can take pictures and videos to your heart’s content.

The Beaches

The beach is one of our favorite spots at which to spend time, and we know that many people will agree with us that beaches are incredibly relaxing environments. Hawaii’s beaches are some of the most spectacular in the world. While there are plenty of beaches with the type of sand that you would expect to see, there are also beaches with black sand. Waianapanapa State Park has granules of sand that are pitch black and were created when the surf pounded on a fresh lava flow. If you’ve never set foot on a black sand beach, then you need to be careful if you choose to walk barefoot, as it gets much hotter than white sand.

The Culture

Hawaii has one of the most ethnically diverse populations and culture of any of the states. You will find influences from many foreign cultures in addition to the Hawaiian culture. The Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Samoan, and Spanish are just a few of the cultures that deeply influenced and shaped Hawaii into the amazing place that it is today. With all of these outside influences, you will be pleased to know that the Hawaiian culture is still alive and well. It is not uncommon to hear people speaking in Hawaiian in the grocery store, and many of the streets, cities, and beaches still retain their Hawaiian names.

The Weather

For those of you who live in places where winter can be brutal, you will probably smile when you hear that Hawaii does indeed have a winter season. While it is nothing like what you experience, you will probably notice that the natives bundle up, as 75 degrees is a little chilly for them when the average year-round temperature is 85. If you live somewhere that experiences a true winter season with lots of snow and ice, then you will enjoy our winter season in Hawaii with temperatures that will seem quite balmy in comparison.

There are countless reasons why you should visit Hawaii, and we will continue this discussion in our next post.
