10 Tips for Planning a Trip to Hawaii with Kid

The Hawaiian Islands are a natural playground with endless snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, zip lining, and volcano exploration. Plus wildlife encounters with sea turtles, manta rays, whales and dolphins. 

What is the Best Hawaiian Island for kids?

There are six major islands in Hawaii you can visit:  Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, and the Big Island. 

Best Time to Visit Hawaii?

The average temperature is between 75˚–85˚ F (24˚-29˚ C) with summer (between April and November) being a little warmer and drier, and winter (between December and March) a bit cooler – but nothing like over on mainland USA! 

Flights to Hawaii

Depending upon where you depart from, if it’s a long haul flight, when traveling with kids I like to get to our destination as quickly as possible, with the most amount of comfort our budget allows. 

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

Not having travel insurance on an overseas trip (or domestic) is not worth the risk. Anything can, will, and sometimes does go wrong. If it does and you are not insured, you can be up for a lot of money AND inconvenience. 

Accommodation in Hawaii

Book hotels in Hawaii as early as possible. The further in advance you search for accommodation in Hawaii the more likely you are to get a deal.
