Kauai Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(Kauai, Hawaii - HI, USA)




Picture of the Marriott HotelKnown for its tropical climate, high levels of annual rainfall and plentiful sunny weather, Kauai is a very green island, being covering in lush flora, earning it the affectionate name of the 'Garden Island'. Kauai's climate conditions vary, depending upon where you are staying on the island.

On the northern and eastern sides of Kauai, the weather tends to be a little more breezy, with prevailing coastal winds on occasion, cooling down the summer highs of 29°C / 84°F (June to September). Subsequently, these areas tend to receive more rain, while the climate on the southern and eastern sides of the island enjoys a more sheltered and sunnier setting, with far less likelihood of rain. Interesting, Mount Waialeale is an extremely wet part of Kauai, while just a matter of kilometres away, the climate around the Waimea Canyon is much more desert-like.
