Seasonality of Hawaii

As a result, high season in Hawaii, when the islands get the greatest number of visitors, is mid-December to early April.Hawaii Beach photo Off season tends to be mid-April to mid-June, and early September to mid-December - ironically, considered to be the months that experience the best weather on the islands.

In preparation for high season, hotels and resorts in Hawaii will typically increase staffing levels in late November.

For job seekers, understanding this seasonality is important in order to maximize hiring opportunities. Although the perfect hospitality job could become available at any moment, the chances will always be greater as a resort increases staffing levels.
