Hawaii Retirement Information

Hawaii has some of the most breathtaking, natural beautiful scenery in the world. The fresh, floral air energizes you and the waters refresh you.

Six unique islands offer distinct experiences that will entice you. The state's diverse landscape includes beaches, erupting volcanoes, snow-capped mountains, tropical rainforests, breezy beaches and arid, wind-swept plains.

The climate is very appealing. There are basically 2 seasons, the warm summer months from about May to October, and the cooler winter months from November to about April. The humidity is high, as with any tropical climate, but the ocean breeze can make it very pleasant.

Hawaii's cost of living is 77% higher than the national average and the median home will set you back $495,700.

The word "aloha" is a greeting Hawaiians say when they welcome visitors or meet one another, it means love.
