A trip to Hawaii is a welcome break any time of the year, but March brings on the start of a charming season characterized by calmer ocean conditions and bright blue skies. Though there may be passing spring showers scattered here and there, there's nothing a light jacket can’t solve and a warm daily temperature in the 80s can’t make up for—especially while other parts of the world are still experiencing some of that residual winter chill.
Foot traffic does tend to pick up towards mid to late March with the arrival of families on holiday and locals making their way back home for a visit during Spring Break. However, the crowds are definitely manageable as long as you book any island tours, ocean activities, or restaurant reservations
If you’re staying within Waikiki, be sure to visit Waikiki Beach Walk® and take advantage of new spring releases as well as this month’s shopping promotions.

In a nod to the spiritual relationship between fishing and Hawaiian culture, this Polo Shirt takes traditional artwork of sea life and gives it a fitted, sporty shape that works great as casual dress attire as well as on the golf course or tennis court.
Short-Sleeve Surviving The Elements Coconut Classic Crewneck T-Shirt ($35.00)
This crewneck tee pays homage to the long-running TV show, Survivor, and uses coconut as part of its exclusive dyeing process to help you embrace your inner islander. Its design incorporates the Survivor logo surrounded by powerful animals that symbolize strength, cunning, and wisdom.

March Gift Ideas
Hawaiian Quilt Collection
The Postcard Collection is one of the newest lines available in-store only at Hawaiian Quilt Collection
, conveniently located on the 2nd floor of Waikiki Beach Walk®. Michael John Gillan, the brand’s creator, tells us a short story on the inspiration behind The Postcard Collection’s designs:
“These designs are my impressions of where I spent my life. They capture a moment in Hawaiian time. They are the memories of my childhood; an experience with a loved one, like sailing in my Hobie catamaran with clear blue skies on emerald-colored waters to the Moke's (Mokulua Islands).
It’s the sand between my toes, strolling hand in hand with my sweetheart. It’s feeling the magical breeze while gazing upon a moonlit Diamond Head and the shimmering Waikiki waters. It’s waking up to see Chainman’s Hat and the splash of ocean mist or smelling the salt air over the Napali Coast on Kauai. These are a few of my postcards that give a personal touch, feeling, or emotion to our Hawaiian quilted items.”
Making a comeback for spring, the 2020 Lemon Collection blends the sweetness of white chocolate and refreshing twist of lemon into premium shortbread cookies that perfectly capture the warmth of the season in each bite.
Treat yourself to the taste of a sunny day in paradise with these zesty citrus sweets, which will be available at Honolulu Cookie Company
starting March 18, 2020 while supplies last.
- Logo Mini Bag (5 cookies, 5 flavors)
