May Day is Lei Day in Kauai !*!


**This is one of three lei that was made from Plumeria Trees at Islander on the Beach. It was hand crafted by one of the great employees and is on the railing of condo 250.  They were very generous and gave us 3 Plumeria Lei.  What a great day!

This is a very exciting time of year on Kauai.  There are several events going on to support Lei Day for your enjoyment on various days.
