Why Visit HawaiiAbout Hawaii?
Much of Hawaii can be a great exodus in wintry conditions, especially if you are living in a cool environment. I was in Hawaii during the coldest winters of January and February and was enjoying the hot and sunny days of Hawaii. Let us take Waikiki and Honolulu as a good, central example and consider their January average temperatures.

In Hawaii, showers are usually short-lived. A very interesting sample for Hawaiian rains is that most rainfall occurs over night. It' d be uncommon to have two or three full working nights of it.

Have a look at our Hawaii Water Poles to find out more. Many microclimates exist in Hawaii and some areas get significantly less precipitation. So if you go to Hawaii in summer, you should take a look at my advice where to spend the night in Hawaii to prevent rains.
