Question by Bluemoon: Which month is the best time to visit Hawaii?
I’m planning to take a vacation to Hawaii with my family. I was wondering when the best time to visit Hawaii.
We would like to avoid high season (peak season).
We would like to avoid hot and humid weather. We prefer dry(less damp) weather.
Which months would be the best to travel to Hawaii for my family?

The weather in Hawaii is much the same year round, although it is a little hotter in the summer. Rainfall depends more on the side of the island you are on than on the season, although there is more rainfall in the winter. For example, on Kauai, Princeville is wetter and Poipu is drier. On the Big Island of Hawaii, Kona is drier and Hilo is wetter. You can’t altogether avoid humidity, because the moisture always comes in from the ocean.
The two peak seasons are summer school vacation and from Christmas through solar and lunar New Year. October or March-April are relatively low-season months with good weather. If swimming in the ocean is something you want to do, keep in mind that in the winter the north sides of islands can have very rough surf. It is very beautiful, but not safe for kids.
