Are you looking for the perfect destination for the upcoming Halloween holiday weekend? If so, Kauai is the perfect destination for those looking to escape the ordinary back home and find something tropical. As most parts of the country are getting colder with the fall season, Kauai is still just as beautiful as ever. The Halloween weekend is also a great time to visit even if you have never visited before as the summer crowds are gone. This makes the island a little quieter and opens up all of the exciting activities and attractions for you to enjoy without large crowds. Don’t worry, as there are plenty of things to do for Halloween on Kauai. Take a look below:
Stop by the Kauai Culinary Market
Here on Kauai local farmers take advantage of the tropical climate to grow some impressive and delicious produce. Hawaii may be known primarily for its pineapple but there is so much more to enjoy too. You can find all of the fresh and delicious produce when you stop by the Kauai Culinary Market taking place every Wednesday from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. This is not your ordinary farmers market either. This weekly event brings on all things local with Kauai grown and packaged produce and other goods by local vendors. The Beer & Wine Garden has plenty of adult beverages flowing where you can see incredible live chef demonstrations on how to use the island’s fresh food. Live music featuring contemporary Hawaiian music from John & Pali will also be on hand to add to the fun. The Kauai Culinary Market is one of the finest farmers markets you will have ever seen before!
Princeville Night Market
Another exciting market that takes place exclusively here on Kauai is the Princeville Night Market. This monthly event is an evening full of local vendors selling all kinds of items such as hot sauce, handmade soap, paintings and other kinds of art, wood carvings, and so much more. The finest artisans on Kauai take part in the event making it easy to find a unique gift to take back home with home. Make sure you come hungry as a variety of food trucks will also be on hand to provide their delicious food. Dessert vendors also provide sweet treats to help end your meal with. Three different live musicians will be playing throughout the event for plenty of live entertainment. If you prefer to sit down at a restaurant there are plenty within walking distance. Don’t miss out on this exciting event taking place every month at the Princeville Shopping Center.
Book a Plantation Canal Tubing Ride
The fall season around Halloween on Kauai still allows you to get outside and enjoy all of the activities of summer. One of the most exciting is having a tubing ride down one of the local plantation canals. You will be riding down luscious flora for a relaxing experience in the gentle waters. Kauai Backcountry Adventures are able to take you on exclusive rides through sugar cane plantations that only they have access to. You will be given all the gear you need including an inflatable tube and a headlamp for this momentous activity. You will find out why the headlamps are needed when you come across tunnels that are pitch black without them. Now that is getting in the spooky spirit for Halloween! Each tour is approximately three hours long for a half day adventure on Kauai.
Enjoy Fine Dining at Red Salt
Just because it is Halloween does not mean you cannot go and find the fresh and delicious seafood that is caught around Hawaii. Enjoy a fancy meal at Red Salt, a restaurant right here on Kauai that is a new local favorite. Fresh seafood such as King Crab and spicy seared ahi are just a few of the many entrees on the menu. The fall season means you will be able to get a reservation just in time for dinner!
Go Stand Up Paddleboarding
If you really want to mix thrills and fun together, we recommend going stand up paddleboarding or SUP as the locals call it. This activity has been around Hawaii for generations and is a great way to explore and get a work out in. It is super easy to learn, and local guides will help you along the way.
Fun Fall & Halloween on Kauai
While Kauai may not have traditional Halloween events or activities there is plenty for you to enjoy when visiting in October. Our vacation rentals and beautiful Lanikai beach houses will keep you right by the beach which is still incredible to lay back by in the fall season.
