HAWAII HOLIDAYS

Travel destination reviews that highlight 'The Best of...' invariably refer to the Hawaiian Islands as the best place for sun, sand and natural attractions - the place to head for a fun holiday.

With 130 islands in the Pacific Ocean, the 50th State has some of the finest beaches in the USA. Each sandy stretch is fronted by crystal waters teeming with tropical fish darting through forests of coral. Some of the world's best surfing and watersport opportunities are offered here and for those intent on premium sightseeing it is hard to beat the thrill of watching lava flow from the world's longest erupting volcano. Hawaii also has a rich history of different cultures and ancient civilisations which will delight visitors   as they soak up some of the 'Mana' (spiritual power) of legendary gods and goddesses. 

Chances are you will visit Oahu, Maui, Kauai, or 'The Big Island' of Hawaii. Most of the sophisticated nightlife is centred on Waikiki beach on Oahu, but you'll also be able to experience traditional festivals where visitors are encouraged to don 'leis' (necklaces of flowers) and dance the famous 'hula' after sunset. with the others offering a more sedate pace of life.

Between them, these four islands boast an amazingly diverse holiday experience. As specialists in the whole of the USA, Millington Travel have a wealth of experience and knowledge of these islands, and we can help make your dreams come true, whether you decide on a standalone beach holiday or with stopovers in Las Vegas or California.

When to go?

The climate of Hawaii is more subtropical than tropical, and is moderated by the Ocean so there are no extremes of temperatures. There are two seasons, neither of which is particularly extreme. Summer (May to October) has pleasant temperatures and humidity is low, with the average highs of 82°F (28°C). Winter (November to April) has temperatures that rarely fall below 65°F (18°C). The windward side of the islands experiences more rain than the leeward side, and the latter is where most resorts tend to be.
