An Unforgettable Hawaii Spring Break
Planning Your Trip
Let’s start by stating the obvious, Hawaii is an absolute paradise, and the best time to visit is between March and September when the weather is perfect. On the Big Island, temperatures in spring range from a comfortable low of 69 degrees Fahrenheit to a delightful high of around 83 degrees Fahrenheit. Now that’s what I call the ultimate climate for a fun-filled vacation!
Did you know that the Big Island of Hawaii is progressively getting bigger? Did you know that the big island has the biggest mountain and volcano in the world? Did you know that you can take helicopter rides over those volcanoes? Did you know that Kona has different colored sandy beaches? Did you know that the Big Island of Hawaii offers fun, adventurous excursions for families? Phew… that was a lot! But guess what, these are only a slim portion of the uniqueness of Big Island!
No matter which island you decide to visit, make sure to bring a rain jacket or poncho! Hawaii’s clouds can roll in at any time and unleash a sudden downpour, catching you off guard. So, it’s always wise to be ready for any weather surprises that come your way!
What better way to experience Hawaii than to explore the rich heritage of Polynesia through an ATV ride through the jungle? At Aloha Adventure Farms, we offer an overall unique and cultural experience as you ride through the jungle in Holualoa and stop at four “islands” in Polynesia. Upon arrival at each island, there will be an engaging experience. Can we spoil your trip really quickly? This Big Island ATV Tour is SO MUCH FUN! If there is someone in your group that doesn’t feel comfortable riding an ATV, proper accommodations can be made where one of our tour guides can drive up to four people on a UTV. The UTV follows right behind the ATV Tour, so don’t fret! You won’t miss out on a thing.
Looking for more adventures on the Big Island? Did you know that Volcanoes National Park offers more than 150 miles of hiking trails? Crazy, right?! Given this fact, everything from going on a stroll to daring to go on a harder hike are such fun activities. You and your family can choose which best meets your needs. One of the most popular hikes, named Kilauea Iki Trail, consists of a four-mile hike. However, if four miles seems like too little or too much, there are so many trails to choose from!
If your search for adventure takes you to Kauai, we recommend you call our friends over at Kauai ATV for a great experience!
To keep hyping up Aloha Adventure Farms, we would like to share that we also offer Polynesian Wood Carving Tours! This is a more intimate tour where you and your group will ride up to a section on the farm where you have the most beautiful, panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. It really doesn’t get any better than this! Your tour guide, Mani, is a 4th generation master carver from Tonga and he will teach you everything you need to know about how to create your very own Tiki! Each Tiki is made from locally grown wood and the best part is that you get to take this souvenir with you! Where are all my builders and artistic people? What about those that want to learn? This is also a perfect fit for everyone!

Hawaii Spring Break Travel Tips
Pack for the weather: While the weather in spring is generally warm and pleasant, it’s always wise to bring a light jacket or sweater for the cooler evenings. Also, don’t forget to pack a rain jacket or poncho as the weather can be unpredictable, and rain showers are common.
Rent a car: Renting a car is the most convenient way to explore the Big Island, and it’s especially crucial in the spring when public transportation can be limited. Having a rental car gives you the freedom to explore the island at your own pace and discover some of the hidden gems that are off the beaten path.
Book activities in advance: Spring is a popular time to visit the Big Island, so it’s advisable to book any tours or activities you’re interested in ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
Embrace the local culture: The Big Island is rich in Hawaiian culture, and springtime is a great time to experience it. Attend a traditional Hawaiian luau, enjoy a Polynesian Wood Carving Tour, visit the Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, and learn about the island’s history and traditions.
Overall, though we may be biased, spending your spring break vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii is the best way to go! This island has so much to offer for all different types of families. We look forward to helping you hosting you here at Aloha Adventure Farms and hope to help create memories that will last a lifetime! Have we done enough convincing yet? Mahalo & Aloha!
