The official rainy season is in the winter from November to March, but it rains every day somewhere on every island regardless of the time of year, and it is more like a sprinkle than a downpour. That is why it is so lush and beautiful here.

It is very rare for it to rain continuously for days.

All the islands have similar climates: southwestern coasts are sunny, dry and lined with sandy beaches, while the northeastern sides have lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and pounding surf. Hawaii enjoys warm weather year-round, with coastal temperatures averaging a high of 83°F (28°C) and a low of 68°F (20°C). Summer and fall are the driest seasons, winter the wettest.

The bottom line is: as far as the weather goes, anytime is the best time. The chances are that you will have great weather.

There is however a risk of storms/hurricanes from June to November.
