What should I wear to the Polynesian Cultural Center?
Dress comfortably Be aware that we are mainly an outside venue and that it can be very hot and/or rainy. Men should wear a shirt and all should wear comfortable walking shoes. If you wear bathing suits, please use a cover-up! To find a cute cover-up, aloha shirt or slippahs, visit our online store.
Do Hawaiians wear Hawaiian shirts?
The short answer is: absolutely. Many Hawaiians and locals wear aloha shirts (aka “Hawaiian” shirts) practically every day including at work, parties, dinner, or just a casual BBQ. They're everywhere. In fact, a nice button-up collared aloha shirt is considered formal wear in a lot of places on the islands.
Should you bring a jacket to Hawaii?
Hawaii is generally warm year-round, but sometimes you might encounter a short cold spell when visiting in the winter months. Bring a light jacket (ideally a breathable, rainproof jacket) or sweater. You'll probably want to have a sweater or jacket just for the plane ride over.
