Reasons to visit Hawaii for a summer holiday

Updated on July 4, 2011

Hawaii contains magic for all

Hawaii is the newest of all fifty states in the USA and is the only which is made up entirely of beautiful Islands. The culture and scenery that surrounds Hawaii is incredible and admired by people from all over the globe. With delicacies to indulge in, a new lifestyle to experience and many areas to explore; visiting this astounding island will give you memories to hold on to for a long time to come.

Beaches line the outskirts of Hawaii, perfectly preserved in the essence of nature. White powder soft sands and turquoise waters provide spectacular photo opportunities and the chance to go on long walks or participate in the many water sports that are popular here.

Whether you choose to jet off to this tropical island and stay in a friendly hotel environment with local people spreading their kindness and joy, or whether you decide to take a cruise around the Hawaiian seas where you can soak in every angle of the landscapes, you will be equally happy with your choice.

The best time to visit Hawaii is usually from mid December to April. This makes it a great time to travel due to the weather peaking at its hottest and temperatures falling low back home (so you won't miss the sunshine back in your home city!).

If the idea of taking in breathtaking views, trekking up winding valleys and mountain peaks and discovering all that Hawaii has to offer sounds tempting to you then it is a good idea to learn the Polynesian language of Hawaii. The locals will be pleased to hear you took the time to learn some basic phrases, not to mention impressed.

Remember that the currency in the Hawaiian Islands is the US dollar ($). If this is not your regular currency then be sure to sort everything out before you leave! The warm breeze in Hawaii will leave you thirsty for fruity cocktails and cool walks, so be sure to have a comfortable amount of money to take with you and an appropriate wardrobe.
