During the rainy months of November through March you should plan for the coldest weather that Hawaii offers as well as keeping an Umbrella on your at all times. The many different climates on Oahu will vary and rain can spring up on any part of the island. On the positive side there is always a sunny side of things. You can always find a beach for a perfect sunny day. You just might have to travel to the other side of the island…  Some of our favorite and most beautiful beaches are on Oahu.

However, the other islands (Maui, Big Island, and Kauai) are much less populated and have a more natural feel to them. A variety of Red, Black, and White sand beaches await you. During these months combined with the cross winds the temperature can become cool, acting like an air conditioner. Bring a jacket and rain gear for this time of year and your camera because you will see more rainbows during your stay, than all year long.
