For all of you who live outside of Hawaii, we're taking an informal poll -- what month or time of year do you usually visit the islands?

Here at the Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge Planning Dept. we're organizing some special events and would like to schedule them at times when more people are in the islands.

Mahalo for your response, so we can help make this a better bar for you!

We usually go twice a year to get our fix.

A couple of weeks in late March/early April

and the same in late Sept./early Oct.

Hope that helps!

Good luck and look forward to visiting!

Jason

October or November, usually. Once in June, though.

How about right NOW! I'm in a house on the beach in Kailua as I type. My favorite time of year to go is winter, January is great because it is such a welcome change.

This was taken in May. The view hasn't changed however.


The weather is fantastic. Getting a little rain each day. Not bad. Today we hiked to a waterfall, OMG it was a struggle. So slippery and treacherous.
Tomorrow we hit the north shore.

One of my favorite places in the world...Kailua Beach !

Off travel season is when the best deals are....that is when I try to book trips.
Like Iakona Ki'i said...April/May or Oct are good times.

This is moderately thread-related, but I saw it in the news today. For all you Pacific NW TC'ers out there, if you're thinking about escaping to the islands this fall, this might seal the deal:

"When do you visit Hawaii?"

When I can afford it. Which is about once every five years or so.

We leave on Thanksgiving day to the Big Island, then Sunday to Kauai for the week. We love going in Winter, went to Oahu about 3 years ago in January. We've been several times but usually in late November, the whales start showing up! And the weather is nice there when it's cold and crappy in No. Cal...

We'll be at Forbidden Island the night before Thanksgiving in case anyone wants to meet up!!

I was there in June once. It was so dry. I probably wouldn't do that again.

Whenever my ship pulls in.

Which hasn't happened for me since 2004.

Wow, cool! The lounge looks great.
I like the transition between rainy season and spring.
Still get some winter swells, without the crowds, and a taste of the sunnier, warm days.
