Knowing the islands of Hawaii is a dream for many lovers of paradisiacal settings. The region became a reference when we thought of lush beaches and typically preserved culture, but to set up the perfect itinerary for your trip, you must pay attention to some tips.

Located in Oceania, the state became officially American in 1959 and together with Tonga, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Samoa, Easter Island and another 1000 islands, it forms the region known as Polynesia, where tourist and family life happens in favor of everything that comes from the sea. 

The beaches and the contact with nature are the essence of this magical place, but those who think that Hawaii is not able to surprise its visitors with museums, unique flavors and much more are mistaken. And Happy Tours will help you to enjoy every opportunity of the islands. Come with us!

Practicality on the trip: start with the car rental in Hawaii

There is no denying it, 10 out of 10 travel guides state that the most practical way to get around in Hawaii is by vehicles. In both the capital Honolulu and the smaller islands such as Kauai and Lanai, urban transportation is precarious and often non-existent, so car rental is the best way out.

In order not to delay any ride, or miss that special sunset, the best option is to select your car before boarding. Arriving at your destination, you have several options to pick up your vehicle, since airports in cities like Hilo (Airport ITO) and Kona (Airport KOA), besides the capital, offer this service.

Some Honolulu neighborhoods also have this possibility for your trip, options such as Waikiki Beach are a great stop, since, while your vehicle is prepared, you already start enjoying the first hours facing the sea.

What can't be missed on your trip to Hawaii? 

The answer to this question depends on many factors, after all, a trip with friends may be quite different from a honeymoon, or family trip, but do not worry, Hawaii is democratic and has unmissable options for all occasions.

To enjoy the best of your trip, the ideal is to spend from two to four days who each island in the region, but as this may be a more expensive route, some choices are necessary. Oahu and Maui have an urban structure full of restaurants and shops to walk around, besides the waterfront and exuberant sea.

The islands are also perfect for those who are passionate about surfing and prefer a more adventurous route. In Oahu, for example, there are the best waves in the world, since the island receives the final of the world championship of the sport, on the beach of Pipeline.

With more trail options and a closer contact with nature, "Big Island" and Kauai are the right bet for those who are fans of this kind of adventure. Considered as the main islands of the region, volcanoes and exuberant landscapes are the main attraction of this region.

Before selecting hotels and tickets for the Hawaii islands, it is important to understand that some options do not allow tourists to visit. Of the alternatives located near Maui and Oahu, for example, only Molokai and Lanai are allowed for tourist exploration.

Travel to Hawaii all year round!

Hawaii's typically tropical climate allows you to plan your trip for any time of the year, as the sun and warm climate are a must there. July and January have the hottest and coolest temperatures of the year respectively, but even the October rains have landscapes and rainbows you can't miss.
