Ultimate Hawaii Packing List!

Updated: 6 days ago

I've been to Hawaii 20+ times, which means I am a pro at packing for Hawaii. Buying items on the island can be far more expensive so it's best to bring what you need with you! I've complied a Master List for everything you'll need while in Hawaii and listed it out below.

These are items you should have with you no matter what destination you are heading to. They're vital for a successful trip.
