Booking Holiday Packages to Hawaii with Webjet
If you’re looking for a holiday destination that offers relaxation, adventure and beauty, Hawaii is the place for you. Hawaii is made up of eight islands and is located in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. While it is a US state, its culture is completely different than the rest of the country. The Hawaiian culture dates back about 1,500 years and has roots in Polynesia. While every island of Hawaii is beautiful and full of incredible natural treasures, each of the six main islands offers something unique. Oahu is the most cosmopolitan island and is home to the capital city of Honolulu. Maui is the ‘Valley Isle’, known for its mountains and incredible national parks. Kauai is the ‘Garden Isle’ and is teeming with rainforests and waterfalls. The ‘Big Island’ of Hawaii has great snorkelling, scenery, and coffee plantations. Molokai and Lanai are rustic islands that give a great glimpse into the authentic spirit of Hawaii.

Things to do in Hawaii
Diamond Head Crater
Hawaii is full of great hikes. One of the best is located right in Honolulu, only a short distance from the centre of Waikiki. Diamond Head is an inactive volcano with a relatively easy hour-long hike to the top. From its summit, there is an incredible view of Honolulu, the ocean, and the bright green Hawaiian landscape.
Drive the Road to Hana
The Hana Highway is a scenic stretch that hugs the north-east coast of Maui, starting in Kahului and stretching about 80 kilometres (50 miles) to the town of Hana in the east. Including a drive on the Road to Hana is a great way to see a lot of Maui in a short period of time. The highway is dotted with amazing views of the ocean, waterfalls and rainforest. Visitors can book onto a tour of the Road to Hana, but the best way to experience it is to rent a car and do a self-driving tour at your own pace. Do take note that some sections of road can be treacherous, so some car rental companies do not allow their vehicles to be taken on the highway. Some of the most notable stops along the Road to Hana include Waikani Falls, Paia Town, Twin Falls, Kahanu Garden, and Waianapanapa State Park.
The attack on Pearl Harbor is one of the most significant historical events to happen in Hawaii. The bombing of Pearl Harbor took place in December 1941 and is the event that brought the United States into World War II. Today, you can visit the spot where this occurred to learn about the bombing and how it affected Hawaii. Pearl Harbor is located in Honolulu and is made up of several memorials, including ships, a submarine, and a museum.
Attend a Hawaiian Luau
Luaus are traditional Hawaiian parties that are a great way to learn more about local culture. Luaus always involve a huge feast of local dishes, Hawaiian music, and hula dancing. Throughout each island of Hawaii, you can find a traditional luau to attend every night of the week. Check with your hotel to see which luaus are located nearby.
Go to the Beach
When you book a holiday package to Hawaii, you’re probably excited for all of the incredible beaches. Throughout Hawaii, you’ll find seemingly endless stretches of beach with soft white sand and warm, clear water. Some of the best beaches to visit in Hawaii include Waikiki Beach, Lanikai Beach, and the North Shore on Oahu; Kaanapali Beach and Wailea Beach on Maui; Hanalei Bay and Tunnels Beach on Kauai; and Hapuna Beach and Kua Bay Beach on the Big Island. No matter which beach you visit, you won’t be disappointed. Many of the beaches also have great snorkelling where you can view colourful coral and tropical fish. Many Hawaiian beaches are also known for their world-famous surfing. Lots of lessons are available to improve your surfing skills. If you’ve never tried surfing before, what better place to try it for the first time than in Hawaii?
When to Book Hawaii Holiday Packages
There is no bad time to book cheap flights to Hawaii. Temperatures are stable and beautiful throughout the year. And while winter experiences more rain than the summer months, precipitation and humidity are still low. Summer and winter are the high seasons in Hawaii, and during these seasons, you’ll experience larger crowds and higher hotel prices. If you are planning to book a holiday package to Hawaii for its famous surfing, you may want to consider braving the crowds in the winter, as this is peak time for surfing. Surf is at its best with great waves and regular surfing competitions.
Outside of surfing season, the shoulder seasons from April to early June and September to mid-December are great times to book Hawaii holiday packages. The weather is perfect, the islands aren’t quite as busy, prices are at their lowest, and there are lots of festivals and events to keep you entertained.
