We have assembled some of the best Hawaii webcams from the islands of Maui, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island. Some of the webcams are not operational at night. In the summer during daylight savings time, Hawaii is three hours earlier than the US west coast, 6 hours than the east coast and 11 hours earlier than the United Kingdom. Hawaii does not observe the time change in the fall.
Maui, also known as the Valley Isle, has some of the most beautiful beaches and resorts in the world. In addition to the live streaming webcams below, we also have vacation planning pages that discuss current weather conditions and forecast plus the best seasons to visit, outdoor activities, resorts and hotels, the best beaches, timeshares, interactive maps, restaurant reviews and general information about Maui for the first time or return visitor.
Maui has diverse weather micro-climates, from the drier south-western side of the island, the rain forests of Ioa Valley and Hana plus the 10,000+ foot peak of Haleakala volcano where it is windy with daytime highs in the 50s or below.
Kauai is known as the Garden Isle due to the lush rain forests that cover most of it's 552 square miles. It is also one of the first Hawaiian islands to form as a result of volcanic activity. Princeville is known for it's beautiful coastline and resorts overlooking the Pacific ocean.
Oahu is the most populated of the Hawaiian islands with close to one million residents. It is slightly larger than Kauai at just under 600 square miles. Oahu's main city of Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii. Oahu is the most diverse in terms of languages, art and culinary history. Oahu is also home to the famous and beautiful Waikiki beach with views of Diamond Head.
The big island of Hawaii is the largest of all the Hawaiian island chain at just over 4,000 square miles. It is also home to the only active volcano in the Hawaii islands, Maunaloa, at just over 13,000 feet in elevation. The Big Island's location is the most southeastern of all the islands and therefore is more prone to hurricanes and often acts as a barrier to the other islands, especially Maui.
