5 Ways to Spend Aloha Fridays in Kauai

Aloha Fridays in Kauai can be a great way to experience Hawaiian culture, relax, and escape the daily grind.

Aloah Fridays is a Hawaiian tradition that has been adopted throughout the US and other parts of the world. It’s a celebration of the end of the working week…something a bit like casual Fridays, only more so.

On your next Hawaii vacation, make sure you enjoy Aloha Fridays in Kauai at least once during your stay.

There are so many ways to spend Aloha Friday on the island of Kauai, from the party atmosphere of a Kauaian Luau to a relaxing day on some of the island’s most beautiful beaches and coasts.

Here are 5 great ways to spend Aloha Fridays in Kauai:

1. Kauaian Luau

Aloha Friday is a great time to see one of Kauai’s famous luaus.

The traditional luau evening is filled with music, entertainment and plenty of delicious food and drink. A Hawaiian must-do, all of the luaus in Kauai come alive on Aloha Fridays when everything gets stepped up a notch.

Kauai has a great selection of luaus to choose from. One of the most popular is the Luau Kalamaku at the Kilohana Plantation.

The only theatrical luau on the island, the luau was named the “Best Luau Show” by Lonely Planet.

2. Hanapepe Art Walk

In the small town of Hanapepe the town lights up with eclectic artisans, local foodsellers, and some great shops every Aloha Friday.

The town is known as the art capital of Kauai and has the slogan, the “biggest little town.” Hanapepe is home to a great number of shops, art galleries, and restaurants.

Make sure you take a walk along Hanapepe Road, which has a festival atmosphere and some of the most interesting art in Hawaii.

3. Go to the Beach

Kauai island has some of the best beaches in Hawaii…and some even go as far as to say that Kauai has some of the best beaches in the world.

On Aloha Fridays the beaches are busy with holidaymakers and locals topping up their tans for the weekends. The Aloha Friday often continues into the night with many beachgoers staying on the sand to watch the beautiful sunset and the wild waves crash onto the shore.

4. Take a Boat Tour

Kauai’s coastline is best seen from the water. The 11-mile stretch of the Napali Coast is spectacular and there are a number of boat tours to choose from.

Take a beautiful sailing boat with Holo Holo Charters to see the sunset and possibly even some of Kauai’s exciting sealife, including humpback whales, dolphins and green sea turtles.

Or if you prefer to be a little more active on your Aloha Friday then you can take an all-day snorkeling cruise along the coastline.

5. Take a Helicopter Tour

Take Aloha Fridays to new highs by seeing the wonders of the island from a helicopter.

Tours run daily and usually last up to an hour, which is more than enough time to see most of Kauai’s incredible sights. On one of these popular tours, you’ll be able to see the island’s most famous natural wonders, including the Waimea Canyon and the Napali Coast.

On the Wings over Kauai tour you can also glimpse Hanalei Bay, Bali Hai, and a number of hidden waterfalls that cannot be seen from the ground.
