Oahu Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

There are essentially two seasons on Oahu, warm and warmer. The warmer summer season runs from May through October, with temperatures reaching around 84 F.

During the rest of the year, temperatures mostly remain around a delightful 72 F. The higher elevations, such as the Upper Manoa Valley north of Honolulu, receive much more rain than the beaches. The eastern side of the island is lusher and receives more rain, while Honolulu and Waikiki tend to be drier. November through March, Oahu’s rainy season, as well as the summertime months, are considered peak season.

Getting to Oahu

If you’re heading to Oahu, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) is likely where you’ll land. The airport is Hawaii’s largest and is the hub for most international flights into the Hawaiian Islands. Honolulu Airport is well connected to the mainland and offers frequent connections to the other islands. 

Fast Facts

Did you know that the only palace in the United States is located in Honolulu? Built in 1882 by King Kalakaua, the Iolani Palace housed the royal Hawaiian monarchy until 1893. More recently, surfers have ridden waves as high as 85 feet along the famed North Shore and lived to tell their tales.
