So you’re thinking about moving to Hawaii, eh? Did you know that apartment and home rentals in Hawaii, on average, are considerably more expensive than those on the mainland? See below for a more in depth look at the cost of living in Hawaii.
HAWAIIAN ISLAND AVERAGE RENT* AVERAGE WAGE
Honolulu $1,600 $13
Maui $1,500 $13
Kauai $1,300 $11.75
Big Island $1,000 $11
*Reflects average cost of a two-bedroom apartment as per the National Low Income Housing Coalition
Remember, about 90% of all food in Hawaii is imported, which means that all around prices are higher than what you would typically see on the U.S. mainland. There are 3 great exceptions, of course:
- Sam’s Club
You can find some amazing prices on items at any of these larger stores, but of course, don’t forget to support the locals when and where you can!
