If you are dreaming of a Hawaiian getaway but want to avoid the crowds and high prices of peak tourist season, consider a trip to Kauai during shoulder season. Parrish Kauai offers a wide selection of vacation rentals on the Garden Isle, and we are intimately familiar with the ebbs and flows of the island’s tourism. For many, visiting Kauai during shoulder season makes for the perfect island escape. Here is a look at why choosing the shoulder season for your Kauai vacation is a brilliant idea.
Shoulder Season on Kauai
Shoulder season falls between the island’s peak and off-peak seasons. This typically occurs in the spring from April through May and in the fall from September to November. During these months, visitors can enjoy several advantages that make their trip unforgettable.
Lower Prices & Higher Availability
Traveling during shoulder season can save you a substantial amount of money. You will find lower prices on accommodations, flights, and activities, making your dream vacation to Kauai more budget-friendly. Additionally, with fewer tourists, you have a better chance of securing the rental property of your choice without the stress of overbookings.
Less Crowded Attractions
Kauai’s famous attractions, like Poipu Beach, the Na Pali Coast, and Hanalei Bay, can get quite crowded during the peak season. However, during shoulder season, you will find these destinations offer a more tranquil experience. This means you can take your time exploring, enjoy serene hiking trails, and capture those perfect photos without hoards of people in the background.
If you are a fan of wildlife, visiting Kauai during the shoulder season is a treat. Fall, in particular, is prime time for whale watching, as humpback whales migrate to Hawaiian waters to give birth and nurse their young. The first whale sightings typically take place in October and November. Some of our vacation rentals offer excellent vantage points for whale watching, or take a whale-watching tour to witness these magnificent creatures up close and personal.
One of the perks of visiting Kauai during shoulder season is the weather. While Kauai features great weather year-round, you will dodge the hottest and coldest months of the year when you visit during shoulder season. That means you can expect nice temperatures for all sorts of island activities.
