Hilo Flights Guide

Hilo is a charming municipality in Hawai'i, Hawai'i, also known as "The Big Island." So, what makes Hilo special? Other than the fact that it is the namesake of the most famous Hawaiian chain store, Hilo Hatti's, Hilo boasts breathtaking scenery, as it is located at the foot of two stunning volcanoes: Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, which is still active to this day. It is also home to many important ground-level astronomical observatories.

Air travel has long been more popular for Island hopping in Hawaii, and luckily, Hilo International Airport perfectly meets these needs with regular flights to Oahu and Maui. For those exclusively Big Island Bound, Kailua-Kona can be reached by bus, but is better reached by rental car.

The typical Hawaiian climate rings true in Hilo, though it is somewhat wetter than other places in the island chain, due to its tropical rainforest climate. Hilo is actually considered one of the wettest municipalities in the world. Because the weather is generally consistent, there is no wrong time to visit Hilo. However, the weeklong hula festival at Easter Time is something to plan for in order to get a feel for the true Hawaiian culture. Similarly, Christmastime is generally considered festive, and a great alternative to the traditional Hawaiian summer vacation.
