Is Kauai on your radar for a spring getaway? The shifting of seasons in the springtime signals the end of the rainy season on the islands, and you just might find that this is the ideal time to visit. The summer season won’t yet be in swing, so you can take advantage of the off-season and find airfare and lodging at more reasonable prices for activities to enjoy in Kauai. You’ll also be able to enjoy a more private, secluded vacation in paradise than you might in other seasons, when heavy crowds of tourists would be on the islands as well.
Don’t Miss Out on Outdoors
Of course, anyone planning a Hawaiian vacation is sure to be a nature lover. Just because it’s springtime and shoulder season doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any of Kauai’s famous outdoor adventures. For a luxury beach experience, you can lounge the day away sipping Mai Tai’s and getting pampered with spa treatments. Or if you want to kick the adventure up a notch, head to one of the island’s many vast parks and enjoy hiking, exploring, camping, or chasing waterfalls. Other water-based activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and surfing.
Special Spring Events
If you’re looking to experience something that only comes around once a year, check out some of Kauai’s best springtime exclusive events. You’ll soon understand why it’s known as The Garden Island if you visit during the Spring Fantasy Orchid Show. You can see displays of the beautiful flower in colorful ranges from pink, purple and yellow. You can even buy an orchid at the show and have it shipped safely home! Another fun event exclusive to the springtime is May Day by the Bay, a celebration of the traditional lei necklace. This community festival celebrates the best of Hawaiian culture, featuring traditional rhythmic music, hula dancing, craft fairs full of handmade goods, and incredible local food you won’t want to miss.
Other fun events include the annual Banana Poka RoundUp, an environmental awareness day mixed with the fun and flair of Hawaiian culture. And for nature loving kids, check out the monthly Keiki Day at the Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens for a fun hedge maze, wildlife spotting, and education about rare plants!
