Best Times to Visit Honolulu - Oahu

The best time to visit Honolulu is from September to November, when temperatures, hotel rates, and airline prices are mild. Honolulu's temperatures don't climb higher than the low 80s during the winter (the island's peak tourist — and surfing — season). If you don't mind a little humidity, you can probably find a pretty good deal sometime between May and August.

With average temperatures fluctuating between the mid-60s and low 80s, it's easy to see why this is the most popular (and most expensive) time to visit Oahu. Humidity is low, the waves are their most righteous, and you're just in time for some prime whale-watching.

You can find some great deals during this time of year, especially if you plan a trip for early summer before most families arrive. Temperatures peak around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, but you should still pack layers if you intend to hike at higher elevations.

Key Events:


Honolulu's fall temperatures are between the low 70s and mid-80s, and the hotel rates and flight deals are pretty sweet. There is, however, a greater chance of rain, so pack your raincoat and some galoshes just in case.
