Cheap flights to Hawaii

The islands of Hawaii are world-famous as THE ultimate tropical holiday destination, with their unbelievable beaches, crystal clear waters, colourful reefs bursting with life, warm weather and active volcanoes. Consisting of 8 main islands (Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and the Island of Hawaii), the state of Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America and the last to join the country. Besides its world-renowned beaches and blue waters, Hawaii also holds the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea, which has been producing flowing lava continuously (even up till September 2014). The archipelago itself - located in Polynesia in the central Pacific Ocean - was created from the eruptions of ancient under-sea volcanoes.

With a ocean coastline that stretches for 750 miles, there’s no need to fight for basking space in Hawaii despite its huge popularity amongst tourists, honeymooners, beach-lovers, surfers and wind-surfers as well as volcanologists and biologists.

Though traveling around a group of islands may sound intimidating, fret not - the islands of Hawaii are blanketed with a network of buses, planes and ferries to make exploring the whole archipelago a piece of cake.  On individual islands, bus and shuttle tours are often available for tourists; Oahu’s The Bus service takes passengers around the entire island for reasonable fares. Otherwise, taxis are also readily available. For the sporty, rent a bike and go on a cycling trip around the island - bicycle route maps can easily be found at hotels and tourist centres, and buses are equipped to carry bicycles in case you get tired and want to complete your trip on a bus. For inter-island commutes, ferries and flights are available. Daily ferry services from Maui to Lanai and Molokai are available, and inter-island flights via Hawaiian Air or Island Air are also plentiful.

It would be unthinkable to go all the way to Hawaii and not hit the beach, so that should be your number one priority! Though each of the 8 Hawaiian islands come fully equipped with gorgeous coasts, Maui is specially known for its tranquil beaches and is also considered the windsurfing capital of the world. What’s more, whale-watching is extremely popular in Maui as the great humpbacks frequently bypass the waters around the island - go on a whale-watching tour between the months of December to May and get up close and personal with the gentle giants of the Pacific Ocean.

For other types of marine life, make a stop at the central Hawaii Island for some snorkelling and scuba diving along the Kona Coast. Swim with the mystical manta rays, observe darting schools of fish and watch majestic sea turtles glide through the water. With aquatic life a-plenty, the waters along Kona are great for deep-sea fishing and also hosts numerous fishing tournaments throughout the year.

After that, get your feet back on dry land and visit the world-famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the state’s most famous attraction. Inside the park you’d come face to face with some of the most active volcanoes in the world - Maunaloa, Kilauea and more. Hike or trek on rocky trails and volcano craters and feel the might of Mother Earth as you explore these volcanic wonders in safety.
