Best time to visit Hawaii
With great year-round weather, Hawaii only has two seasons: summer (May to October) and winter (November to April). The average daytime temperature varies from summer highs around 85º F (29º C) to winter highs around 78º F (25º C). Nighttime temperatures are approximately 10º F lower than the daytime.
The best time to visit Hawaii for good weather is the summer. Summer is also the time when the islands receive more tourists. However, the best time to go surfing is winter as it brings bigger waves to the north shores of all islands. It is also the best time to go whale watching. Humpback whales can be spotted from almost every island, but they tend to concentrate between Maui, Molokai and Lanai. October is a good time for festivals and events like the Hawaii International Film Festival, the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, and the Kauai Chocolate & Coffee Festival.
