Hawaii beaches are some of the best beaches
in the world!
When people think of a tropical beach, Hawaii
is usually the first place that they think of... Why? It
encompasses everything you'd expect to see at a tropical
The weather is always hot year-round, the
water is always clear, and the sand is always clean, which
makes hawaii beaches great for swimming, snorkeling, boogie
boarding, surfing, or just lounging just about every day
of the year. The beaches are also a great place to take
There are many beaches in Hawaii... and
the great thing is that there are no private beaches! Every
single beach on all of the Hawaii islands are 100% public...
that means there is no beach you can't visit!
As long as you can get to the beach by water
or land, you're free to enjoy it.
When is the best time
to visit the Hawaii beaches?
Well, as far as weather is concerned, it
almost doesn't matter... the average high temperature in
Hawaii in the summer months is about 87 degrees fahrenheit
(31 C) and the average high in the winter months is about
84 degrees fahrenheit (29 C). So the temperature doesn't
change a whole lot.
The beaches are the busiest during the winter
months (December - February) and least busy during the summer
months (June - August) mainly because of the weather elsewhere
in the world, particularly the mainland states.
Our trips, so far, have all been during
winter months, and even though it is a busier time than
the summer, it wasn't bad at all... we were able to do everything
we wanted without even coming close to feeling crowded.
What about surfing?
If you want to surf, the best time to visit
the beaches are during the months of November, December,
January, February, or March as large swells on the North
Shore are not uncommon. Although, if you have never surfed
or are just a beginner, you won't exactly need the big swells...
you can read up about surfing
on Hawaii beaches.
And the water temperature?
Hawaii waters are inviting year-round, averaging
about 75 degrees fahrenheit (24 C) and reaching close to
80 degrees fahrenheit (26 C) in the summer months. So in
other words, the water is always perfect.
What are some of the best
Like we've mentioned above, there are many
beaches in Hawaii... here are a few of the ones you'll want
to visit (listed by island)...

All the Hawaii beaches are
We know there are a lot of Hawaii beaches
to choose from when planning your vacation, but rest assured
that no matter which beach you decide to spend a day at,
or just a few hours, you won't be disappointed at all.
And, it is also easy to visit a few beaches
in one day, especially if you rent your own vehicle. Stop
at one beach, then hop back in the vehicle and drive a few
miles down the island to the next beach! They also have
taxies that will take you to whatever beach you want, and
many beaches have buses that come through periodically,
so you can ride those too.
One last thought on visiting the beaches...
if you rent a vehicle, do not leave anything in the car,
especially if you are parking it out of your sight. The
people of Hawaii are some of the absolute nicest in the
world, but you've always got the bad apples no matter where
you are, and vehicle break-ins do happen from time to time.
We've never had it happen to us, nor do we know anyone who
it has happened to, but it was something we've been told.
