Why Spring Is The Best Time of Year to Visit Hawaii
Spring is undoubtedly the best times of year to visit Hawaii. Fragrant white pikake and colorful yellow hibiscus flowers take bloom. To add to natures ambiance is the extra daylight we enjoy in spring. Additionally, while most of the rest of the nation adjusts their clocks for daylight savings time, we just take the day in stride and lounge in the extra sunshine.
We have much to celebrate too in March. We have Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Day on March 26. Walk out of your accommodation and enjoy a parade right in Waikiki. Typically in late March, we start to see the southern Pacific Ocean come to life. Wax up your surfboard, schedule a surf lesson, break out your boogie board, or just sift your toes in the Waikiki Beach sand watching the waves.
Lifting of COVID Restrictions and Mandates
For our visiting guests, Hawaii has taken an abundance of precaution with respect to COVID. The state has achieved an 80 percent vaccination rate on Oahu. The hospitals are no longer inundated with COVID cases. Our governor recently announced that the mask mandate and Hawaii Safe Travel Program will cease on March 26. Guests arriving from the United States no longer have to show proof of vaccination or a negative test to avoid quarantining for five days.
Governor Ige said, “I do believe that we are the last community to release the mask mandate because we care about each other and we care about our community and we are all willing to sacrifice to keep each other healthy and safe.” The vaccination and testing as well as the mandates and lockdowns contributed to Hawaii as having the lowest rates of COVID in the country.
Come and enjoy the lovely spring sunshine and celebrate with all that Hawaii has to offer. This spring we look forward to once again frolicking in the sand and waves and we know we have much to be grateful.
